Hyundai hosts annual dealer meeting and awards at 2018 AED Summit
Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas hosted its annual North American dealer meeting last week in conjunction with the 2018 Associated Equipment Distributors Summit in Las Vegas. Dealer personnel representing more than 100 of Hyundai's 170-plus locations across North America gathered for the event, which was designed to celebrate the brand's rapid growth in the region.
"Our construction equipment dealer network is growing steadily. In fact, several of the dealer personnel who participated in our annual dealer meeting are new to our brand," said Stan Park, vice president of Distribution/Marketing for Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas. "We are committed to providing our dealers with the essential tools and information they need to develop and grow their business and communicate to their construction equipment customers the solid value delivered by Hyundai wheel loaders, crawler excavators, wheeled excavators, compaction equipment and hydraulic breakers," Park said.
Hyundai's executive and management team shared strategic direction and plans for future regional and global growth for the brand. Hyundai celebrated a 20-plus percent growth in 2017, along with significant market share growth and dealership and territory expansion.
"We have a clear strategy to maintain our aggressive growth in North America and beyond, and our dealer network is key to our forward momentum," Park said. "As the face of the Hyundai Construction Equipment brand – and our trusted advocates in the marketplace – our dealer partners are excited about the direction we are headed, and we are very appreciative of their continued support and loyalty."
The company also honoured five of its top dealers for 2017 at the meeting.
Hyundai awarded its top honour of Dealer of the Year to Four Seasons Equipment, Inc., of Houston, Texas. The dealer was recognized for excelling in customer satisfaction, overall dealership operations and parts, service and equipment sales.
Selected as top performing Hyundai construction equipment dealers of 2017 were the following four companies: Robs Hydraulics, Inc., Grimesland, N.C.;
May Heavy Equipment, Lexington, N.C.; Modern Group, Ltd., Bristol, Pa.; and Porter Group USA (formerly known as Heavy Equipment Rental & Sales), headquartered in Corona, Calif., and serving southern California.
As one of the latest models in the R2-Series excavator lineup, the Bobcat® E88 delivers durability, performance and quality for more productivity. Technically speaking, it's a compact machine, but it brings big performance with its redesigned engine and optimized lift performance, plus undercarriage and counterweight improvements. All these enhancements make this excavator one of the highest-performing models in its size class. With impressive over-the-side lift capacity, you can dig with greater confidence over the side of the machine. Put it to the test against similar models from other manufacturers. You'll see that the E88 can outwork the competition.
