Aerial work platform manufacturer Snorkel has appointed Sun Marketing Group in the Southeast US as its new representative for Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and Tennessee.
Sun Marketing represents more than 20 respected brands in construction, industrial landscaping and agricultural equipment and tools, including Sullair, Subaru, Bartell Morrison, Graco and Sakai.
"Sun Marketing is the ideal partner for us in this region," said Mike Stevenson, Snorkel's sales manager for the South Central territory and Tennessee west of Nashville. "The company has roots here stretching back more than 20 years, has strong customer relationships and a reputation for being a company you can trust."
Three agencies combined in 1994 to create Sun Marketing and the managing partners then and now are Bill Benjamin, Corry Oakes and Dick Smith.
"The aerial lift market in North America is experiencing high growth and we know there is demand for these products from our existing customer base," said Dick Smith of Sun Marketing Group. "The Snorkel machines really suit our customers because they are simple, reliable and durable, plus we have one of the most extensive aerial lift product ranges available to offer them."
Sun Marketing has 10 field sales agents, with an extensive customer base focused on rental stores, construction equipment dealers, events companies, equipment exporters and industrial tool dealers.
The appointment of Sun Marketing Group is part of Snorkel's ongoing strategy of increasing sales and distribution channels in North America.
