NEAS became a distributor for Alaso, a cage manufacturer located in Lakeland Florida. NEAS consulted with Alaso to develop the Flexx system, a system for egg production that can be used as a standard cage, an enriched cage or as a cage free system.

NEAS also opened a store in Franklin, VA to serve hog producers in Virginia and North Carolina. This facility provides equipment support and stocks parts for fast repairs.
