And the Winners Are……


Wells Sweeping - Sacramento, California

During the weeks leading up to this year’s National Pavement Expo, we asked 1-800-SWEEPER members to submit photos with our logo and number displayed on their sweepers.  Using 1-800-SWEEPER logos creates a billboard on wheels.  Potential customers in your local service area will see your sweeper trucks at job-sites…and it is easier to remember a number like 1-800-SWEEPER than a company name, or even a local phone number.  Placing our logo and 1-800-SWEEPER number on yours trucks adds to your existing marketing efforts, and all of the phone inquiries received from your local service area are routed to your company.

Getting back to NPE, we thought it would be fun to show a slide show of members displaying the logo and toll free number.  We received entries from all over the country and after careful deliberation, we are ready to announce the winners of this year’s photo contest.
