Terex Construction Americas, Southaven, Mississippi, has announced that Sargents Equipment and Repair Service is now the authorized distributor of Terex Fuchs material handlers for central and northern Illinois—including the entire Chicago market area—and the eastern, southern and northern portions of Wisconsin.
“Sargents Equipment has built a solid reputation for providing strong service support for the equipment lines they represent,” says Terex Construction Americas Sales Director Martin Gonzalez. “Mike Sargent (president of Sargents Equipment) grew up in the scrap market and has a unique understanding of the critical role material handling equipment plays in the success of an operation.”
“Sargents Equipment has grown from the service side of the business, and our owner, as well as key field personnel, has been involved in scrap-related businesses for years,” says Don Davies, vice president of sales for Sargents Equipment. “We understand the need for today’s processors to run more efficiently, since margins have gotten very tight. Terex Fuchs has what we and our customers are looking for in a material handler, and the new Telematics system offered on Terex Fuchs machines allows us to be proactive from the service side to help improve our customers’ bottom line.”
Sargents Equipment operates from locations in South Chicago Heights and Gilberts, Illinois.
