Message from John E. Hallberg, CEO of
Alternate Energy Systems, Inc.
Peachtree City, GA, Dec. 23, 1998 --
Dear Customers, Suppliers, Employees,
and Friends of AES:
After enjoying the success of Alternate
Energy Systems, Inc. (AES) for almost 25 years, I have decided to sell the
company and to retire.
Effective immediately, the ownership in
AES has changed to Mr. Wolfgang Driftmeier, president of WHD Holdings, Inc.
Mr. Driftmeier has spent the last 20+ years in various positions in related
parts of the industry, and I am confident that he is the right type of
person to maintain AES’s reputation as the leading manufacturer of
vaporizers and mixers for propane standby systems, and to facilitate the
continued growth of AES.
I would like to take this opportunity
to thank customers, suppliers, employees and all other friends for their
patronage, innovative new parts and components, loyalty, and everything else
that helped make AES what it is today.
In the months before we finally went to
closing, Mr. Driftmeier and I have already built a rapport that will ensure
a smooth transition and will guarantee the continued successful operation of
AES. I have promised Mr. Driftmeier to be available to him whenever
necessary, and it will be my pleasure to help with the introduction of the
latest product developments.
