TONTITOWN, AR – April 9, 2024Central States, a leader in metal building components, roofing, and building packages, has named Ahmed Abdelaal to the new role of Vice President of Engineering and Operations for the Central States Building Works division.  Ahmed will lead the group’s technical services including engineering, drafting, and detailing and will bring his know-how in automation, software, operations, and manufacturing to the business as preparations are made for the company’s new frame plant, planned to open in Springdale, Arkansas in the Spring of 2025. 

“I’ve always believed in the power of innovation to create solutions, to overcome roadblocks, and work collaboratively,” Abdelaal said.  “Central States has a great reputation for metal building components and packages and is expanding upon this foundation to add new offerings, manufacturing capability, and know-how to serve our customers well.  I look forward to playing a role in this evolution of Central States Building Works.” 

Ahmed brings almost three decades of industry experience working for some of the largest Pre-Engineered Metal Building (PEMB) companies in the United States and internationally.  He comes to Central States after spending the initial 11 years of his career at American Buildings Company (now Nucor) and Butler Manufacturing Company (now BlueScope Steel), where he held leadership positions in engineering and project management.  For the last 12 years, Ahmed has served global companies by building out factories and technical capabilities in executive operations roles. He has worked with large, multi-national commercial customers in retail, auto shops, warehouses & logistics facilities, car showrooms, sports arenas, entertainment facilities, aircraft hangars and manufacturing, leading commercial general contractors, and public entities, including the US military. 

“We are excited to welcome Ahmed to the team. He has an outstanding track record driving technical excellence, assembling high-performing teams, and leading growth in the metal buildings industry,” said Jennifer Davis, President of Central States Building Works. “His expertise will be invaluable to our employee-owners and customers as we continue expanding our solutions and capabilities to meet the needs of our customers today and into the future.” 

Central States Building Works designs and delivers material-only building packages across the United States for commercial, storage, agricultural, industrial, and other applications. The business unit was established in 2003 as Central Storage Works and was rebranded earlier this year in recognition of its expansion to additional building types and capabilities. Starting with an idea and a location, the business provides a full portfolio of services from initial estimating to drafting, and working through final contracting and engineering stamps, delivering all that is required to erect the building directly to the job site.  These custom kits include metal bolt-up buildings, rigid frame metal building systems, carports and garages, self-storage, and more. When combined with private label manufacturing capabilities, Building Works enables customers to grow their portfolio of offerings.  All Central States Building Works packages include metal building components, which are 100% recyclable and designed with sustainability in mind. 

On November 15, 2023, Central States broke ground on a new 105,000-square-foot plant to support the fast-growing pre-engineered metal frame business. The factory, which will open in 2025, expects to grow to 140 employee-owners over the first few years of operation. 

Central States, Inc. (www.centralstatesco.com) is 100% employee-owned and was founded in 1988. With over 1,400 employee-owners and 11 manufacturing facilities, the company serves over 6,000 commercial, architectural, post frame, and residential contractors and customers across the United States across three business operating units. Central States Manufacturing is a leading manufacturer of metal building components with 14 metal roofing and wall panel profiles, along with a full line of trim, accessories, and structural purlin. Two new factories are under construction, including a frame plant for pre-engineered metal buildings. Central States Building Works provides material-only building packages for self-storage and metal building systems. In 2022, Central States acquired Elevate Structures (formerly Storage Structures, Inc.), a leader in self-storage offering the patent-pending Alpha Framing System.

TripShot Launches FlexRide, a New Transportation Solution for Campuses and Communities

 

 

FlexRide efficiently pools riders and ensures everyone arrives at their defined destination on time

 

 

SAN JOSE, Calif. April 2, 2024 – TripShot, an industry-leading transportation management solution for companies, universities and hospitals, has announced its latest feature, FlexRide.

TripShot’s FlexRide is an innovative new transit SaaS solution that automatically creates dynamic routes by factoring in user-requested pickup/drop-off locations and predetermined stops and times. For example, riders can submit a next-day pick-up request at their home, be dropped off at a pre-determined stop and arrive on time for their daily commitments. TripShot aggregates all similar requests, creates a dynamic route and notifies riders of their scheduled pickup time. The reverse can happen for commutes home.

FlexRide supports higher vehicle utilization and lower deadhead times for vehicle fleets. By pooling riders along a dynamic route, operators enjoy more efficient vehicle assignments and optimized scheduling. Adding FlexRide to TripShot can significantly improve rider convenience, allowing them to customize their transportation services to meet their unique needs. Since operations began in the Fall of 2023, an early-adopting customer’s average weekly growth rate for completed trips has been 17%. 93% of these trips received a 5-star rating from riders.

“FlexRide is a win-win for administrators, drivers and riders. It’s a revolutionary transit innovation seamlessly tailored to cater to today’s diverse commuters and passengers. Early adopters of FlexRide have found it operationally scalable and responsive while enhancing the rider experience, attracting new riders and ultimately helping employees to arrive ready for a productive day.” said Patrick Le, Co-Founder and General Manager at TripShot.

This new feature results from the company’s strong emphasis on innovation and focus on changing client needs. Initially built for corporate campuses of some of the world’s largest technology companies, TripShot now offers FlexRide as another mode of transportation for future-oriented corporations, universities, medical facilities, and other campuses.

“FlexRide is a paradigm-shifting transit innovation simultaneously prioritizing operational efficiency and rider convenience, ushering in a new era of forward-looking transit options,” added Rob Antoniak, Chief Customer Officer. “This game-changing innovation is a testament to our grit and determination to fulfill our mission to simply and efficiently solve transportation’s most pressing problems while redefining mobility for all.”

Zevtron and Chauntry Partner to Offer Groundbreaking EV Reservations Platform for Airports

April 02, 2024

 

Zevtron and Chauntry Partner to Offer Groundbreaking

EV Reservations Platform for Airports

 

 

 

Carlsbad, CA (April 2, 2024)—Zevtron, the innovative smart EV charging software and hardware solutions provider, and Chauntry, the parking reservations leader, today announced a partnership to enhance airport EV charging services. This innovative solution leverages Zevtron’s industry-leading smart EV charging software within the existing Chauntry Parkspace reservation system, enabling EV drivers to effortlessly reserve charging stations before their flights. Unlike other EV charging reservations platforms, Parkspace utilizes Zevtron’s industry-leading smart EV charging software, which allows airports to monetize EV charging, keeping all the revenue generating by charging infrastructure.

“This is an important breakthrough for airports,” said Bob Andrews, founder of Zevtron. “Now airports can retain total control over the EV assets for which they are offering prebooking. It’s no longer necessary for airports to cede control over EV charging to closed technology providers if they want to offer EV reservations. Not only will this improve airport EV services, but it will also open up new revenue streams.”

Airports can add EV charging to their existing Chauntry Parkspace portals or, if they don’t yet offer parking prebooking, they can partner with Chauntry to launch Parkspace with EV charging.

“As airports have rebounded from the pandemic, parking prebooking has become essential for improving the travel experience,” said Theresa Hughes, managing director of Chauntry. “Now, the same limited inventory challenges that make parking prebooking necessary are presented by EV charging. If you’re driving an EV to catch a flight, the last thing you need is to arrive at the airport, only to find that there are no EV chargers available. Now, airports can remove travelers’ uncertainty over whether they’ll be able to charge their EV, and the anxiety that uncertainty can cause.”

Reserving EV charging with Parkspace is simple. When flyers log into the airport’s parking portal to reserve a parking space, there will be an option to reserve charger space as well. It’s simply a matter of clicking the EV button. Then, when they arrive at the airport parking facility, they merely drive to their EV charging station, scan the code provided by the prebooking platform, and begin charging. When they return from their trip, their account will automatically be debited for both charging and the parking session. For flyers who are taking longer trips, the platform can be integrated with valet services, and the vehicle can be moved to a regular parking area when it’s fully charged.

Charging is powered by Zevtron’s industry-leading smart charging software. The software provides airports complete control over their charging stations and allowing them to collect and keep all the revues generated by EV charging.

About Chauntry

Chauntry is the world’s leading provider of parking reservations systems. Founded in 1991, Chauntry pioneered the development of innovative parking reservations solutions, and today the company continues to lead the way with the introduction of valuable new parking reservations products and services.
