Each of the Company’s Water, Power and Safety divisions experienced operational growth and increased revenues during 2013, as discussed below.
The Company’s Water division experienced significant growth in 2013 due to increased customer base, expanded territories of operational activities and additional services offered. The November 2013 AquaTex acquisition also provided new customers and geographic expansion in South Texas’ Eagle Ford Shale and the Eaglebine formation in East Texas. Additional service offerings including waste water evaporation services and flow back/well testing services which made a positive impact on the Water division’s revenue growth. As previously announced, the strategic alliances with CRS Repossessing and Resource West also contributed to the Water division’s 2013 growth. By partnering for these additional products and services for our Water division, the Company avoided most of the costly product development cycles and issues customarily found with new product inventions.
The Company’s Safety division continued its growth in 2013 via establishing new safety engineering service sites in Ohio and West Virginia, adding customers in Texas for safety inspection as well as safety classroom training and certification programs offered. AES Safety Services also expanded its service offering to include a rapid spill response program for site clean-up and remediation after environmental occurrences.
During 2013, the Company’s Power division, operating as South Texas Power (STP), augmented its fleet of oilfield mobile generator sets, acquired several new oilfield customers and added additional key employees, all of which contributed to its growth and facilitated expansion into other parts of Texas. Recently STP has developed a new operating base in the Permian basin. The Power division anticipates entering the Oklahoma market in fiscal 2014 leveraging its existing customer base and reputation in the Texas market.
Matthew Flemming, CEO of HII Technologies, stated, “While maintaining our focus in the Water, Safety and Power market segments we have expanded our services within these segments which is a business strategy we believe will continue to position us for growth. Currently, the markets we operate in have been very active for energy services and we are pleased with the organic growth that occurred in 2013.” Mr. Flemming continued, “The successful integration of the AquaTex acquisition from November 2013 and the Company’s continued growth and demonstrated ability to bring new technologies to our customers, is a tribute to the outstanding people who work at our Company.
