Two Harbors, Minnesota-based Builtrite Manufacturing has announced the appointment of two distributors for the Southeast region to as part of its effort to expand its sales and service network throughout North America.
Ingram Equipment, based in Pelham, Alabama, specializes in truck-mounted cranes, garbage trucks, vacuum trucks, rolloff trucks and similar equipment, serving the solid waste and municipal markets. Builtrite says Ingram’s current operations make it “a perfect fit to handle Builtrite’s line of truck-mounted material handlers, stationary electric material handlers and attachments for the states of Alabama, Mississippi and the Florida panhandle.”
“After my initial introduction of Builtrite products from Mike Walter, its Southeast regional manager, along with a subsequent trip to its Two Harbors plant and visits to several customers, it became clear to me that Builtrite would be a great fit for our company and its vision of expanding our product offerings into the markets we already serve, in addition to those we would like to pursue, like scrap recycling,” says Jeff Martin, president and general manager of Ingram.
Spring Hill, Tennessee-based Utility Equipment Service (UES) will now represent the full line of Builtrite products for the Tennessee market. Specializing in the sale and service of bucket trucks, truck-mounted cranes, truck bodies and similar equipment, UES caters primarily to the utility, municipality and general construction markets.
“We were aggressively looking to expand our footprint in the Tennessee marketplace by offering new products that fit with our company’s capabilities, expanded offerings to our current clientele and expanding to new markets, to better diversify and allow our company to grow,” says William Horton, president of UES. “After carefully vetting the Builtrite team and its products, it became clear to us that we will both benefit through this partnership.”
