kpi-eventKPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens hosted more than 60 authorized North American dealers at their annual National Dealer Conference (NDC), held Sept. 16-19 in Eugene, Ore. Each year, KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens launch new products and sales tools for their dealers during the National Dealer Conference. This year, the companies launched seven new pieces of equipment, including the new generation SuperStacker, GT125 jaw crusher, GT145S screen plant, GT165DF screen plant, Kodiak Plus K500+ cone crusher, Series 9000 dewatering screen and high frequency screen for the industrial sands market.

In addition to its new product launches, KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens also unveiled a new dealer-only app called “IronCaddy,” which enables authorized dealers to access information about the five product lines. Each dealership received a new Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 to use for sales support and education.

Melinda Schweitzer, marketing manager for KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens, said this valuable new digital tool will allow dealers to have the latest information at their fingertips, while helping them maximize application and product videos and animations.

In addition to educational sessions, dealers were recognized for their sales excellence during the annual NDC awards dinner. Dealers and industry media (including Pit & Quarry) also attended an equipment expo.
