Recently, Ramon Hernandez, Nick Roberts, Brent Christiansen and Chris Cremer of Harmony Enterprises traveled to New Orleans, Louisiana for the annual Waste Expo. The Waste Expo is North America’s largest solid waste and recycling tradeshow.
The team from Harmony Enterprises walked the show floor, seeing what is new and upcoming in the waste and recycling industry. Ramon Hernandez, Customer Service Manager at Harmony Enterprises, noticed a common theme. He pointed out, “Like many other industries, the waste equipment and services industry is also going high-tech. There are many great advancements in the industry that will help us to better serve our customers.” The Waste Expo was well attended, so the team from Harmony Enterprises had the opportunity to meet with several partners and customers while at the show. Two of the partners that Ramon met with are One Plus and Craft Equipment Company.
One Plus Corporation
One Plus offers a monitoring system for trash compactors that some of Harmony’s customers use. Waste compactors with Waste Edge® technology installed will notify the waste hauler when it is full or in need of service. With Waste Edge® technology, pickups are only made when they are needed, resulting in fewer pickups and less cost. Managing your Harmony trash compactors for trash and recyclables is simplified and more efficient when it is integrated with a monitoring system like One Plus.
Craft Equipment Company
Craft Equipment Company is a material handling and waste reduction equipment company based out of Tampa, Florida. As part of a goal to expand Harmony Enterprise’s service and installer network, Ramon met with the team at Craft Equipment Company to see how they could help to enhance service to customers who need Harmony recycling equipment installed or repaired. Craft Equipment Company has certified service technicians that do 24/7 service and repair of waste reduction equipment in the Southeastern United States. Ramon was impressed with what Craft Equipment Company has to offer to Harmony customers.
All in all, the Waste Expo was a great show for networking, learning, and potential for expanding the services that Harmony Enterprises can offer to their customers.
