The action in Drone USA Inc (OTCMKTS: DRUS) is interesting in the manner that a roller coaster is interesting. The stock initially exploded higher a couple weeks ago on reports that the company had just announced that its subsidiary, Howco Distributing Co, was awarded a three year 1.7 million dollar contract from the US Government’s Defense Logistics Agency with an option to extend for an additional two years for trailer support components.
To follow that up, the company just announced that Howco Distributing increased its contract award win rate by 449% through its Labor of Love Customer Relations Model. The stock has thus far reacted positively, but still has work in front of it to make up for lost ground following the initial announcement a couple weeks ago. It will be very interesting to watch how this story evolves from here.

Michael Bannon, Drone USA’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “I couldn’t be prouder of our Howco team. In the late 1980s when my father started our family business, he taught me an important lesson. He said, “when a customer calls us they have a problem, their problem travels over the phone line and into our office. Their problem is now our problem. We solve it and it never goes back to the customer.” That idea is so central to what Lindsay has coined as our Labor of Love Customer Relations Model. We make our customer’s jobs easier by solving their problems.”
