The Gilbane Building Construction Economics Report for Spring 2014 has been released, and the positive forecast should encourage construction companies and heavy equipment proprietors around the country to keep their heads up.
The report opens with the headline we all hope to see: “Construction Growth Looking Up.” What follows is a data-driven dive into various facets of the economy that impact the construction industry. Not all rosy, the report also includes an analysis of negative economic factors, as sectors of the economy still struggle to recover from recession.
The author of the quarterly report, Ed Zarenski, was gracious enough to give Tuffwerx an historical look into how Gilbane came to release an extensive economics report for free online, as well as some special insight on how his most recent predictions affect the heavy equipment industry.

The free exchange of information and ideas leads to innovation and education, and the heavy equipment industry has some important players who contribute to this exchange. Many equipment trade publications got their start in print, remaining relevant over the years by following their readers online and publishing on the Internet.
If you’re searching for online resources to build up your knowledge base, you’ve come to the right place. New technology, business best practices, how-to’s, event reviews – these heavy equipment websites have it all. Read more »
Any entrepreneur will tell you that pushing a new product or service out to the public is a challenge. Turning an idea into something tangible can take months or even years. Trying to modernize an industry is heavy lifting.
But what makes a firm a successful, long-lasting company? At TuffWerx, we argue that company stability and long-term focus come from identifying and internalizing core beliefs. We continue to fine-tune ours, but we’re ready to share them with you in hopes that you’ll be inspired to create or revisit your own.
1. We Believe Online Equipment Listings Should Be Free
There are many listing websites out there, and most of them charge just to list your equipment for sale. At TuffWerx, we believe that heavy equipment listings are a commodity. But listings themselves are not what provide you value as a seller. Instead, the value lies in our ability to send you buyers.
This core belief fuels the way we run our business. We aren’t focused on having the most equipment listings. Rather, we’re driven by a desire to get you sales. In other words, TuffWerx is not a listing platform. We’re a selling platform.
As a seller, you don’t have to gamble when you list equipment on TuffWerx. You don’t have to justify paying listing fees. List your equipment for free, and we’ll be compensated at the end of the day when we find you the buyer you’ve been looking for. Read more »
