E-Z Drill, a leading manufacturer of concrete drilling and doweling equipment, announced the retirement of vice president of sales Randy Stevens, a veteran of more than 28 years with the company. Stevens joined E-Z Drill just two years after the company was founded.

“It’s been fun to watch E-Z Drill evolve from the small startup it was when I joined into the well-known and respected business it’s become today,” Stevens said. “It’s also an honor to have had a hand in making that happen.”

Stevens has maintained a sales role within the business since he joined, helping dealers and contractors in North America and abroad achieve solutions to their concrete drilling challenges. He has seen the company’s line of drills grow from just a couple of standard drills to a complete line of drilling solutions, including on-grade and slab-rider drills with one to five gangs as well as self-propelled machines and vertical drills.

“It’s not easy to make a name for yourself in this industry,” said Rick Walstad, E-Z Drill president and CEO. “But keeping our customers the key focus is what has driven our success, and we credit Randy for a huge part of that.”

Stevens especially enjoyed seeing E-Z Drill units on high-profile projects such as U.S. Steel in Pittsburgh, the Indianapolis Speedway and San Diego’s Coronado Bridge. Stevens also helped contractors secure the equipment they needed to complete large-scale airport and air base projects around the globe.

“The needs of the industry are always changing, but E-Z Drill is a proactive company,” Stevens said. “We do what needs to be done to help contractors finish their jobs quickly and cost-effectively. That’s the culture. I’m excited to sit back and see what the future holds for E-Z Drill.”

E-Z Drill is based in Perry, Okla.
