East Canton, Ohio-based Barbco Inc. announced April 15 a strong first quarter in 2021. Despite the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic, the company has pulled together and produced record setting financial results for the period.
As a global leader in trenchless and other underground construction manufacturing, Barbco reported strong international and domestic sales of its auger boring machines, Pathfinder 500, FlexBor tools and bentonite pumps. Barbco capital equipment has been deployed to Australia, North America, Europe and Central America in the first quarter. Moreover, the company had strong increases in parts sales and service calls.
In order, to meet this demand, Barbco has added to its skilled team of machinists, welders, fabricators and assemblers.
“I am so very proud of the way our manufacturing team has stepped up in these very challenging times to produce machines to meet and exceed customer demand,” said Dave Barbera, president and co-owner.
Barbco continues its pursuit and commitment to build environmentally safe and innovative equipment. Earlier this year, the company also received another patent for its FlexBor tooling and technology.
