We are ready to support a new dynamic changing Off-Highway industry with complete coverage for the North American Market offering Parts, Service, Product Support and Engineering. Here are a few of the advantages we feel we have put in place to prepare us for the future:

In that time we have built a wealth of expertise and we continue to build on that to support the future.

We invest in what matters our partners and our people. We fill strategic gaps for our partners with inventory, service and expertise. We do not shy away from investing, we have made several acquisitions to enhance our support of North America over the last 4 decades. Talent acquisition was and is a key part of our strategy for the future in an industry that demands 24/7 service.

3. OUR PEOPLE ARE OUR BIGGEST ASSET

We are doing everything we can to ratchet our culture up to meet the demands of the future. This means retaining top tenured employees with tons of expertise and pairing them up with the next generation. It means investing in talent, a safe work environment and diversity in our workforce. It means our people having what it takes now and in the future to support the Off-Highway industry and we get it.

4. INDUSTRY-LEADING SALES PROCESS / DIGITAL PLATFORM

We recognize the future of distribution will be Digital and we are investing heavily in being at the leading-edge of technology as this change occurs. We have custom configured Salesforce CRM the worlds leading software innovator to interface seamlessly with our Distribution & Service business.
