STEVENSVILLE, MD March 7, 2019 – Texas-based Reeder Distributors Inc., one of the largest independent distributors of fuel and lubricants, maintenance lifts and shop equipment in North Texas, has reported record results in 2018, thanks in large part to its growing focus on the sale and servicing of heavy duty vehicle lifts.
For its part, Reeder Distributors, now in its 40th year, has for the past decade been an exclusive distributor of Stertil-Koni USA Inc.—the leader in heavy duty vehicle lifting systems in North America. Reeder’s territory for Stertil-Koni includes northern and southeastern Texas and Louisiana and has expanded into quite the partnership.
That partnership has been a good one, particularly given that Stertil-Koni is widely recognized as the top innovator and provider of dependable, durable and safe vehicle lifting systems – notably bus lifts and truck lifts. Adding to the equation is Reeder Distributors’ intimate knowledge of the marketplace, its technical expertise and an unwavering dedication to being a leader in its sector.

According to Chris Bussey, Sales Manager at Reeder Distributors, “The growth in the demand for heavy-duty vehicle lifts, combined with Stertil-Koni’s superior products, are a huge part of our company’s overall success.”
Bussey continued, “We initially saw great success with Mobile Column Lift sales. More recently, we have evolved into a complete heavy-duty vehicle lift provider -- installing every Stertil-Koni lift available. Our focus on heavy-duty vehicle lifts has culminated in a tremendous increase in sales over the past five years. What’s more, the heavy-duty team is motivated to increase sales on an annual basis by providing a superior product with outstanding customer service and support. We want our customers to know that Reeder Distributors is their complete equipment source – and always stands behind our products with superior service. ”
Jason Reeder, Vice President of Operations, concurred and noted: "This commitment to our end users involves on-time annual inspections, servicing, and maintenance, plus ensuring equipment is used safely, and that techs operating these lifts are well trained. After all, safety is always mission number one."
Concluded Dr. Jean DellAmore, president of Stertil-Koni USA, “We are proud of Reeder Distributors’ dedication to Stertil-Koni’s world-class product line and impressed with the company’s pre-install to post-installation customer-centric solutions and service-based approach. This dedication has put them at the very forefront of the heavy-duty vehicle lifting industry in their region.”
