Samples of Creative Projects/Jobs HMI Customers Have Tackled & A Preview of Things To Come!
I am constantly amazed! It seems like a daily occurrence of late when I accept a call from a customer to share the latest creative way they have used their HMI polyurethane concrete lifting equipment to make money.
A sample conversation usually goes like this:
Customer – “Hey Jen, I just called to share what I did yesterday.”
Me – “Ok – now is this personal or business and you do know this is recorded?” (some laugh)
Customer – “No, no – of course it is business and it really is interesting and you will want to share it with others. I was at a job lifting some driveway slabs and the customer was complaining that someone hit his mailbox. He asked if I could reset it with my foam. I told him I had never tried it before but I was willing to give it a try with no guarantee.”
Me – “And???”
Customer – “He went on and on about what a pain it was. He was moaning that he: had to dig it out, go to get some quick set concrete, pour it and figure out a way to keep it perfectly vertical while the cement set. In frustration he said he would give me $200 bucks if I could just “FIX IT.”
Me – And???
Customer – “I had him hold it straight up and I injected some RR201 around the pole and bingo it set up in seconds.” The man was delighted and gave me $220 for less than $0.25 in foam.
Me – “So now you drive around at night hitting mail boxes with your truck?”
Despite the bad humor my customer did want me to tell his story. Other applications I have heard of in recent months include:
- Fence Post Setting
- Cave Wall Coating
- Crack Sealing
- Making Cast Molds
- Filling Tires
- Waterproofing Cracks
- Filling Leaking Pontoons
- Filling Rotting Trees
- Filling Drums to Float a Raft
Over the next year anticipate HMI more formally offering information and products for more diverse applications of its equipment and foams for its customers. Examples may include:
- Exterior Wall Spray – Vapor Barrier & Waterproofing
- Pipeline Applications – Pillowing, Trenching, Protective Covering
- Crater/Void Filling
- Sinkhole Repair
- Block Core Wall Insulation & Strengthening
- Radon Repellent
- Soil Binding – Seawall and potholes
- & MORE
