“In 2016, we focused on putting the systems in place to ensure early delivery for our customers. In 2017 and beyond, we will continue to improve our efficiencies and processes to benefit our existing clients, while also hopefully earning opportunities to work with even more transit agencies, miners, construction companies, and railroads,” Graham said. “We want to grow our reputation as the dependable, collaborative, all-American manufacturing partner for custom rail-mounted equipment and service needs and to be viewed as a true extension of our client’s operation. I look forward to further collaborating with the hard-working people at BROOKVILLE as we continue to drive the organization forward”
