KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens has announced a donation of more than $4,000 to local and national charities selected by its dealer organization.
In lieu of the traditional awards typically given to dealers who exemplify excellence at the company’s annual National Dealer Conference, KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens decided to allow each award winner to select a charity to which to donate, said Marketing Manager Melinda Schweitzer.
“We wanted to continue to recognize our outstanding dealers for their commitment to the KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens brand, but we also wanted to recognize that our success means we have the opportunity to help others in need,” Schweitzer says.

Award winners included Road Machinery & Supplies of Savage, MN; General Equipment and Supplies of Fargo, ND; Goodfellow Corporation of Boulder City, NV; G. W.
