The great thing about this industry is how gracious everyone involved with utility safety is to a new concept, product and the people presenting it. We met some terrific people from all over the country who were very receptive to our marker and the number of benefits it promises to bring to the industry. The unique attributes of our utility marker hold tremendous promise for adding safety and damage prevention to existing and new utilities or any buried facility.
As expected, one of the great things about attending a conference like the CGA show, is the opportunity to have open discussions with new people who point out applications for your product that may not have been obvious and to learn a little bit from every show.
In Las Vegas, the term that surfaced that is applicable to our marker was the fact that MUUDS identifies a VERTICAL TOLERANCE ZONE for an underground utility. We had conversations with a number of people who recognized that MUUDS are an asset for damage prevention of new utilities and ideal for vacuum excavations where we are recording data for existing utilities.
Perhaps the great thing about the show for us is identifying that our utility marker has international applications and has the ability to set a standard for utility markers identifying depth to avoid damage to utilities.
Next up, we head out to Lexington, Kentucky to introduce our utility marker to County Engineers at their conference. We appreciate the warm response we received from other exhibitors and attendees in Las Vegas and look forward to the show next year in Florida!
