Akkerman Celebrates 40 Years Strong
To mark the occasion of its 40th anniversary, Akkerman hosted an open house at its Brownsdale manufacturing facility on July 18 for more than 50 customers, representatives and industry peers. The day began with an off-site presentation and was followed with facility tours and equipment demonstrations. Guests were able to see the GBM 4815A jacking frame prototype, manipulate the newest GBM guidance system and microtunneling software, and view a live demonstration of the 5000 Series II TBM 600 and Series II pump unit along with many other static displays and equipment at various stages of development in the plant. They day concluded with a picnic featuring live music and entertainment on the corporate office patio.
Looking back on the success of the company, Maynard is quick to point out the contributions of its customers and staff. “I credit Akkerman’s customers for their faith in us and our products throughout the years, and our dedicated team of loyal and competent staff,” he says. “Combined, they make us what we are today.”
