When BWEN starts to move in the next bull phase, it may put on $5 in a very short amount of time. Most will to fearful to get on as it climbs. Good luck bover!
And I am glad you know all the issues a out the painting process. No doubt they surely use catalyzed products for rapid drying, thus cutting shop time. With all the new EPA and OSHA requirements on the coatings industry, I would wager the likelihood of manufacturing the paint to be quite high.
What trade have you aquired journeyman status in? Paint application?
The CFO told me that the 500 towers per year production quota may have to be reassessed because of the NUCOR steel failure on the assembly welding process. This has pinched the production schedule for a good month. So their production slots which are filled out for a year at an average of 10 300+/- foot towers per month have to be caught up. What is sad is that NUCOR didn't tell them of a change in their steel process which led to the current set back. NUCOR is rushing a new batch of steel with the steel problem solved (the welding process nets a delaminating problem in a layered effect through the steel- I understand the steel measures about 2 1/2 inches total thickness). The paint issue was pin holes in paint surface relating to application during high relative summer temperatures. All these events have #$%$ cash flow. God help them fix the issues and be the fine tower builders they have been destined to be. They do build over 50% of the largest towers in the U.S.
If the ever are delisted, it will be from going private as a company or a company like GE will buy them. I believe it will be the latter a few years from now.
Thankfully you can call and talk to them yourself. They don't hide in an ivory palace.
It is sad that BWEN just got keel-hauled by Nucor on a failure in the steel quality for the towers. Nucor changed their steel making process and BWEN's welding failed as a result. Another hard lesson learned.
The paint issue is another issue that probably lies with the paint manufacturer.
