Tad Dunville, who was appointed general manager of North America last year, said: “We love dealers. The relationship is very important because we bring low cost and high performance products, while the dealers bring a great deal of skill in understanding the application and knowing the end users. I feel really strongly that all parties—Airpes, dealers, reps, and customers—will prosper if we remember that and communicate often. All of our reps will focus on supporting crane builder and service organizations.”
