PERRY, OK — E-Z Drill, a leading manufacturer of concrete drilling and doweling equipment, announces the retirement of Randy Stevens, vice president of sales. Stevens has been with the company for more than 28 years, joining just two years after E-Z Drill was founded.
“It’s been fun to watch E-Z Drill evolve from the small startup it was when I joined into the well-known and respected business it’s become today,” Stevens said. “It’s also an honor to have had a hand in making that happen.”
Since day one, Stevens has maintained a sales role within the business, helping dealers and contractors across North America and abroad achieve solutions to their concrete drilling challenges. He’s seen the company’s line of drills grow from just a couple of standard drills to a complete line of drilling solutions, including on-grade and slab-rider drills with one to five gangs as well as self-propelled machines and vertical drills.
“It’s not easy to make a name for yourself in this industry,” said Rick Walstad, E-Z Drill president and CEO. “But keeping our customers the key focus is what has driven our success, and we credit Randy for a huge part of that.”
Stevens especially enjoyed seeing E-Z Drill units succeed on high-profile projects, from U.S. Steel in Pittsburgh to the Indianapolis Speedway to San Diego’s Coronado Bridge. He also helped contractors secure the equipment they needed to quickly complete large-scale airport and air base projects around the globe.
“The needs of the industry are always changing, but E-Z Drill is a proactive company. We do what needs to be done to help contractors finish their jobs quickly and cost-effectively. That’s the culture,” Stevens said. “I’m excited to sit back and see what the future holds for E-Z Drill.”
