The US housing market has flourished in recent years, providing relief after the financial crisis triggered in 2007/08. It is a market backed by solid economic prospects across the nation, with employment up and business confidence at a higher level than it has been for some years. While the economic picture varies from state to state, it is largely positive across the whole country.

The state of Florida was one of the latest to emerge from the recession, but the past 12 months have seen huge improvements in its housing market and business sector. According to data sourced from Zillow in May 2014, home values in Florida had increased 5.3% year on year to £170,200, and where the housing market picks up, the business sector seldom differs.

Poseidon Industries, Inc. is the perfect example – business is booming at the company’s Florida factory, where specialist stoneworking equipment is made for customers across the US. The PT 4000 bridge saw – panel built in the Florida workshop – with its sleek fiberglass covers and cutting-edge design, epitomises Poseidon’s high quality products. With a cast iron heavy duty gantry with 14" x 15" cross section, hydraulic tilt table, air locks for five stops (and air locks in any position), it is a market-leader in this highly specialized industry.

The upturn in the US housing market has been good news for the stoneworking sector, with businesses such as Poseidon benefitting from the renewed vigor with which the construction industry has been building homes. Orders for the PT 4000 bridge saw have been impressive thanks to the upturn in the market.

Naturally, the machine’s innovative design, which includes a 20 HP motor, an operator control panel made in Italy, and X- and Y-axis bellows for protection against the elements, has also been influential in attracting customers. The two year warranty for the whole machine and the five year warranty on the X- and Y-axis mechanical body speak volumes as to the quality that goes into every element of this bridge saw.

With the US housing market continuing its positive trend, businesses such as Poseidon look set to continue thriving over the years ahead. Yet the Poseidon team are not resting on their laurels. Their range continues to innovate in order to stay ahead of the curve. Their bridge saws such as the PT 4000, for example, include the only 7" LCD color touch screen in the industry and include a new blade as standard.

From the turnaround time of just 2-3 months from date of order to delivery, to real time web support and fast technical expertise, Poseidon Industries is ensuring its position as a market leader within the stoneworking sector. The company is keeping pace with the US housing market recovery, demonstrating how closely the housing and business sectors are entwined.
