Contractors and distributors from across the United States attended the two-day event, which included presentations by Terex Finlay representatives in the Grand Ballroom at the Four Seasons hotel in Baltimore, a site visit and crushing and screening equipment demonstrations at Reliable Contracting's 500-acre site in Gambrills, Md., and a customer appreciation event on the USS Constellation, moored in the inner harbor in Baltimore.

Static displays included the 863 heavy-duty screen, 873 heavy-duty screen, 883+ heavy-duty screen and the 674 inclined screen.
Later on Oct. 5, Terex Finlay hosted a customer appreciation dinner on the USS Constellation where not only were guests treated to a catered dinner, they also were given a tour of the ship.
The USS Constellation is a sloop-of-war, the last sail-only warship designed and built by the United States Navy. It was built in 1854, using a small amount of material salvaged from the frigate USS Constellation, which had been disassembled the year before. Despite being a single-gundeck “sloop,” the ship is actually larger than her original frigate build, and more powerfully armed with fewer but much more potent shell-firing guns.
The sloop was launched on Aug. 26, 1854 and commissioned on July 28, 1855 with Captain Charles H. Bell in command. She remained in service for close to a century before finally being retired in 1954. The ship is a National Historic Landmark.
The following day on Oct. 6, guests could return to Reliable Contracting's site in Gambrills for a closer look and inspection of the 13 different models there.
