Road King Technologies, which sells fleet management systems for ready-mixed concrete trucks is opening an office in Oakland, US.
Harry Marks, president of Road King Technologies, said the company has hoped to open in the U.S. since last year when a representative from AT&T approached the company to sell data lines for Road King’s products.
The systems are installed in ready-mixed concrete trucks and allow companies to manage their fleets with the web-based software.
The company is using Alternative Manufacturing, a circuit board manufacturing company in Winthrop, to produce the hardware, Marks said.
He expects Road King Technologies to double its annual sales of $1 million next year and triple them the following year. AT&T and Verizon plan to sell the products to customers all over the country, Marks said.
“By having a space – we don’t really need to do it, but I want to do it because I think the opportunities are going to be 10 times bigger than they are in Canada,” Marks said.
