Stevensville, MD, May 9 , 2016 – Heavy duty vehicle lift leader Stertil-Koni USA, Inc. has announced that it has recently celebrated its 20th annual distributor meeting with briefings, meetings and events held in Burbank, CA, and simultaneously signed three new dealers to join the company’s dedicated distributor network in North America.
Additions to the Stertil-Koni distributor network are:
Diamond State Industrial Products, located in Conway, Arkansas and headed by Dawson Mulhearn and Chris Beard;
Superior Equipment Company (SECO), headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri and led by Tony Rivera and Matt Gross; and
City Lift & Lube, based in Rochester, New York, and managed by Chuck Bauerschmidt.
In making today’s announcement, Stertil-Koni USA Inc. president, Dr. Jean DellAmore, stated, “Never in the history of the vehicle lift industry has a company come out of virtual obscurity a mere 20 years ago to become such a major player in heavy-duty lifting in the United States.” Making it all happen has been a rare combination of superior product engineering, an unwavering focus on customer service, dedicated employees, and a highly skilled distributor network that brings the very best in technical skills and local knowledge to Stertil-Koni’s broad range of customers. Quite simply, Stertil Koni makes the customer the top priority and our passion to serve the customer and take care of our distributors has catapulted us to a leadership position in both the US and Canada. In contrast, while other may sacrifice distributor loyalty for sales, at Stertil-Koni we do not play that game. We know that devoted, loyal distributors take care of their customers.”
DellAmore also cited recent company advances that have further spurred growth. Product development is a key part of Stertil-Koni’s growth. Along those lines, he also mentioned a new, ALI certified model of the Stertil-Koni DIAMOND LIFT, which is now available in a “frame,” version, and engineered specifically for concrete foundations, thus making it ideal for replacement situations. “What’s more,” he continued, we recently completed a 36,000 foot expansion of our manufacturing facility in Streator, Illinois, which will deliver enhanced flow and efficiencies – particularly in the production of our highly regarded heavy duty in-ground lifting systems. In short, Stertil-Koni believes in manufacturing in America for Americans.”
“In sum,” he concluded, “these developments, coupled with our highly talented team – employees and distributors – make Stertil-Koni strongly poised for continued growth over the next 20 years.”
