The 216-page, pocket-sized book is the fourth edition since Kolberg Pioneer Inc. began producing it in 1988.
KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens has released its newest version of “Facts & Figures,” a quick reference guide containing comprehensive general technical information for aggregate and recycle producers, operators, engineers and maintenance personnel of KPI-JCI or equivalent crushing, screening, washing and material handling equipment.
The 216-page, pocket-sized book is the fourth edition since Kolberg Pioneer Inc. began producing it in 1988. The guide’s roots trace back more than 50 years ago, however, when Pioneer developed a Facts & Figures book in Minneapolis, Minn. Kolberg began producing an Aggregate Reference Guide during the 1970s, and when Pioneer moved to Yankton, S.D., to join forces with Kolberg, the book was combined into one, known as the Facts & Figures book.
The company recently held a Facts & Figures contest on its Facebook page to promote the new release, giving away two iPad 2 tablets to the fans that possessed the oldest Facts & Figures books. Each participant in the contest received a free copy of the Facts & Figures book and a KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens hat.
Lisa Carson, director of marketing of KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens, said the Facts & Figures guides are in high demand due to their usefulness for both those in the field and those selling equipment.
“These pocket-sized guides are able to go everywhere and answer questions on the spot that helps minimize downtime and lets producers make the best decisions possible to make their operations most profitable,” Carson said. “The guides have helped elevate KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens into the industry leader it is today.”
