Great Time at Faulconer Construction’s Field Days!

SITECH Mid-Atlantic team members recently joined Carter Machinery for Faulconer Construction’s Employee Field Day.  It was a cold but lovely Virginia day where many Faulconer employees enjoyed seeing and experimenting with new Trimble and Spectra products.

Michael Stellato and John Stellato, representing our Chesapeake office, spoke with Faulconer employees and answered questions about various instruments and programs including Trimble’s TSC7, Propeller Aero drones and the newest models of Spectra Lasers like the DG813 pipe laser.

Michael Carris, Trimble Product Manager, demonstrated the new Trimble SiteVision product.  Launched in late 2019, SiteVision offers an augmented reality tool to the site project.  Training is available on this new technology to your team.

SiteWorks was also a popular product of discussion along with other Trimble software products like Business Center and Trimble Stratus.  Product demonstrations and training are available to all customers who purchase and want to learn more about these programs from our SITECH Mid-Atlantic staff.

Training with Your SITECH Team

While training classes can be scheduled any time throughout the year, is there really ever a better time than the winter season?  Cold and dreary weather may slow down your job site, but it doesn’t have to stop your crews’ ability to learn and grow.

We can travel to the area and find accommodations that best suit your team.  This recent training was completed at the Caterpillar training campus in Clayton, NC.  With indoor classrooms, a large auditorium, and several food and beverage options, the Clayton facility is wonderfully hospitable home to learning.  Our SITECH MA guys can work with large and small groups indoors and out and meet the needs your company is looking for in education for your crew.

SPS training?  Help with your new TSC7?  A visit on the site?  If it’s in our three state region of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia our specialists and technicians can make it happen for your team!  We also provide the literature, manuals, videos, and follow-up to keep the benefits going long after the training day is over.

Does one-on-one work better for you?  Our GPS Specialists even take time to do solo work with crew members on platforms like Business Center and various utility and take-off programs.  This approach allows ample time for questions and explanations and works particularly well for new users and operators.

To learn more about training availability, scheduling and how your team can benefit from our classes, email us today at info@sitechma.com and start a conversation!

Use the Section 179 Deduction!

We’re in the 4th quarter.
Is your team ready to win or down for the loss?
Now is the time to look at the Section 179 tax deduction for equipment purchases!

Section 179 of the IRS tax code allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment and/or software purchased or financed during the tax year. 

Limits of Section 179:

Cap to total amount written off: ($1,000,000)

Limits to the total amount of the equipment purchased: ($2,500,000)

The deduction begins to phase out on a dollar-for-dollar basis after $2,500,000 is spent by a given business thus, the entire deduction goes away once $3,500,000 in purchases is reached.

Who Qualifies for Section 179:

All businesses that purchase, finance, and/or lease new or used business equipment during tax year 2019 should qualify for the Section 179 Deduction (assuming they spend less than $3,500,000). Most tangible goods used by American businesses, including “off-the-shelf” software and business-use vehicles (restrictions apply) qualify for the Section 179 Deduction.

For basic guidelines on what property is covered under the Section 179 tax code, please refer to this list of qualifying equipment provided below. Also, to qualify for the Section 179 Deduction, the equipment and/or software purchased or financed must be placed into service between January 1, 2019 and December 31, 2019.

Take home that 4th Quarter Win!

“Talking Trash” with SVSWMA

Presentations and classroom education were an essential component of the conference for accreditation.
