We adapted to a pandemic that impacted the world. We worked with our customers and suppliers to provide products and services in a safe and productive manner. We're especially proud of the cooperation our employees and customers demonstrated adapting to new work rules and a very challenging environment. We're thankful our industry was declared an essential business and we look forward to a very safe and healthy 2021.

We’re thankful for your hard work, resourcefulness, and commitment to working together so we can achieve our collective goals. We’re proud to supply you with the systems, parts, services, and training that helps you conquer the challenges faced by your business.

We wish you a joyful holiday season. We hope that the magic present during this time of year brings a smile to your face and fills you with peace. We join in wishing you and yours continued success, good health, and happiness throughout the New Year.

Virtual Pipe School & ICON+365 Debut in 2021

Virtual events will dominate our marketing efforts during the first quarter of 2021. We’re looking forward to connecting with you during these association-sponsored events, showcasing our ever-expanding line of products and services, and learning more about the opportunities and challenges our industry is facing.
The first event we're participating in is the American Concrete Pipe Association’s Pipe School which begins on 1 February. Appropriately themed, “Remain Vigilant, Choose to Never Compromise,” the event offers pipe producers and other industry stakeholders two education tracks, technical and production. Each track is subdivided so participants can select the exact training they need. The technical track is comprised of three areas: transportation, sales & engineering, and train-the-trainer while the production track includes basic production, advanced production, and quality.

Besser is also proud to sponsor ICON+365, a joint presentation of the National Concrete Masonry Association and Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute, which premiers on 9 February. A lively General Session, featuring country music artist and Black Hawk Down survivor Staff Sergeant Keni Thomas, will set the stage for the highly focused event.
All of ICON+365’s content is focused on information that will enhance your skills and the success of your business.
Key components include Basic and Advanced Boot Camps for plant staff and a full slate of Virtual Plant Tours. Our featured plant is Basalite's new Servopac® Select plant featuring a Pallet Transport System and a high speed cubing line. Additionally, the event includes, fast-paced Knowledge Bar sessions delving into compelling topics, engaging demonstrations, supplier (associate) hosted presentations, social events, and the opportunity to get to know Besser and other industry suppliers better during the Marketplace.
The beauty of ICON+365 is that programming continues throughout 2021. New content will be provided regularly including three additional presentations by Besser, roundtables discussing Boot Camp and Knowledge Bar topics, and demonstrations. All content will be archived in case you miss something or want to watch sessions again.
