KOBELCO USA Provides Dealers with Firsthand Training
KATY, TX KOBELCO Construction Machinery USA recently provided its Dealer Sales Teams with firsthand product training during its 2016 Sales Seminar. Over 100 sales professionals from KOBELCO's North America dealer network gathered at the four day conference held at CLM Equipment in Houston, Texas.
Participants of the 2016 Sales Seminar were given the opportunity to operate and compare key features and benefits of KOBELCO excavators. Five demonstration areas were dedicated to KOBELCO's mini excavator line, short radius (SR) series and the newly released T4F Generation 10 conventional excavators. The specialty purpose-built SK210D Car Dismantler and ED160 Blade Runner were also displayed. Furthermore, the group toured KOBELCO's 101,000-square-foot headquarters facility and training center, including the 88,000-square-foot parts inventory warehouse designed to cut the time from order delivery to the dealer location.
"KOBELCO's commitment to the US market and dealer network support is reflected in our sales training," said Randy Hall, Vice President of Operations at KOBELCO USA. "The training seminar enabled our dealer personnel to directly observe and experience the benefits of KOBELCO excavators for themselves." Firsthand training is an essential component of KOBELCO's sales strategy; It provides dealers with further knowledge and deeper understanding of KOBELCO products to better serve customers.
Distinguished KOBELCO speakers discussed several other topics during the sales seminar, including: the introduction of KOBELCO's "KO-PRO" three-year/3,000-hour factory included full machine warranty with KOMEXS Telematics; several new excavator models that are being released throughout 2016; and the grand opening of KOBELCO's North American excavator production facility in South Carolina, which will be taking place in June. Jordan Lumpkins, Marketing Manager said, "There are so many new additions to what KOBELCO USA is offering - expanded training classes, new excavator models added, other models updated with new features, and now the US manufacturing facility. The momentum is very exciting to be a part of."
"The strength of the KOBELCO dealer network continues to drive our success," said Pete Morita, President of KOBELCO USA. "We're dedicated to providing customers with superior products and service, and we will continue to do so through a nationwide dealer network where each dealership is highly trained on the benefits of KOBELCO excavators."
