Snorkel this week appointed Sun Marketing Group as its manufacturer’s representative in the Southeast United States, covering Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and Tennessee.
“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.”
Sun Marketing was created in 1994 when three agencies combined, improving the company’s coverage, product range and ability to provide the high-quality customer service. Sun Marketing’s managing partners 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 Smith. “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 represents more than 20 respected brands in construction, industrial landscaping and agricultural equipment and tools, including Sullair, Subaru, Bartell Morrison, Graco and Sakai. The company 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.
