Takeuchi Names EquipmentShare’s North Salt Lake City Location New Authorized Dealership
EquipmentShare’s North Salt Lake City location is the company’s second Takeuchi authorized parts, service and equipment dealership.
NORTH SALT LAKE, Utah — EquipmentShare, an equipment and digital solutions provider serving the construction industry, is proud to announce its expanding partnership as an equipment dealer with Takeuchi-US in North Salt Lake. EquipmentShare’s location at 295 South Redwood Road in North Salt Lake will carry Takeuchi’s full line of excavators, compact track loaders and wheel loaders for sale and rental. It will also offer replacement parts and service, acting as an authorized Takeuchi equipment repair center for customers throughout North Central Utah.
“This news builds onto our growing partnership with Takeuchi,” EquipmentShare CEO and Co-founder Jabbok Schlacks said. “We’ve been consistently impressed with their customer focus and dealer support and are excited to open our second dealership with Takeuchi. Their reputation for durability combined with our fleet management technology make us the premier dealer of next-generation equipment for greater Salt Lake City area customers.”
This announcement comes less than a year after Takeuchi named EquipmentShare as its authorized dealer in mid-Missouri. EquipmentShare’s flagship rental and retail facility in Columbia, Mo., sells a full line of Takeuchi equipment and offers certified service to retail and rental customers throughout mid-Missouri.
EquipmentShare’s proprietary smart jobsite technology comes installed on all its rental equipment and on new Takeuchi retail equipment to help customers get the most out of their machines. EquipmentShare’s fleet management technology tracks utilization rates, engine health and upcoming maintenance to keep machines in optimal condition and reduce downtime. The technology recently earned the company the 2020 Fleet Management Technology Company of the Year award by the AutoTech Breakthrough Awards.
Takeuchi has been a pioneer in the compact equipment industry since 1971, when the brand developed the world’s first compact excavator. Since then, Takeuchi has provided innovative products to meet the needs of the modern contractor, and their dealership and service network spans across North America.
“Our experience working with EquipmentShare has been extremely positive,” Henry Lawson, director of sales for Takeuchi-US, said. “They’ve done an excellent job representing our equipment at their flagship rental facility and retail location in Missouri, and we have no doubt that they will provide great sales and support for Takeuchi customers in the growing Salt Lake City market.”
EquipmentShare will add additional compact/utility equipment sales professionals at the North Salt Lake location, each equipped with a truck and trailer to transport machines to various locations as needed. The authorized dealership location’s rental sales representatives will be trained specifically on Takeuchi equipment, and all sales professionals will attend an annual sales training at Takeuchi’s U.S. headquarters in Pendergrass, Ga. EquipmentShare will also provide factory-trained service technicians to ensure quality service and repairs are available to the Takeuchi customer base.
