Hyundai Forklift hosted more than one hundred representatives from its North American dealer network during a two-day event last week designed to celebrate the brand’s rapid growth in the United States and Canada. With Dealer Principals from Hyundai Forklift’s top North American dealers participating in the event, it was the company’s most well-attended dealer meeting to date.
Chuck Leone, Vice President of Hyundai Forklift, expressed his pleasure regarding the enthusiasm that all the dealers shared about the direction of Hyundai products, services and support. “Our dealer partners understand the solid value our comprehensive line of Hyundai Forklift products deliver to their customers around North America,” Leone said. “The dealers are excited about the direction we are headed, and we are very appreciative of their continued support and loyalty.”
“Hyundai Forklift gave us first-class treatment all week,” said Ted Springer, President of Springer Equipment Co, Inc., Birmingham, Ala. “Our guys came away saying the Hyundai Forklift brand, the Hyundai Forklift team and Hyundai Forklift products are the best.”
The event included multiple seminars and presentations held at Hyundai Forklift’s North American headquarters in suburban Atlanta. During the meeting, Tony Cho, Global Forklift Sales Manager for Hyundai, discussed the company’s multi-year outlook with dealers and shared future business direction and product development plans.
