Terex Presents Company Wrench With Top Terex Fuchs Distributor Award
Carroll, Ohio (May 1, 2012) – Terex Construction Americas has recognized Company Wrench Ltd. as the top distributor of Terex® Fuchs material handlers for 2011. One of the top-performing distributors for several years, this is the first time Company Wrench has been selected to receive the #1 Terex Fuchs equipment distributor award. The company was selected for its continued growth with the material handler line, top sales performance and superior service support of the customer.
“Starting with Brad Hutchinson (owner of Company Wrench) and carrying through to the sales and service personnel, the entire Company Wrench team is passionate beyond belief about ensuring the customer’s success,” says Dean Barley, general manager of Terex Construction Americas. “It’s rewarding to work with a distributor like Company Wrench, whose philosophy and dedication to the customer is in line with our commitment to the success of the customer.”
On hand to receive the award for Company Wrench were Hutchinson, Gary Gleckler – president, Scott Carpenter – CFO, and Cam Gabbard – vice president. “It’s an honor to have our team’s dedication to the Terex Fuchs line recognized with this number one distributor award,” says Hutchinson. “With our focus on the scrap and demolition industries, the Terex Fuchs line was a natural fit to our equipment offering. As a result, the relationship has allowed us to offer more solutions for our customers and has resulted in a huge infusion of growth for our company.”
Company Wrench’s unique road to becoming a heavy equipment distributor began 13 years ago, when Hutchinson started a truck, trailer and equipment shop in Fairfield County, Ohio. At the time, the company offered 24-hour, seven-day-a-week wrecker and recovery service.
It wasn’t until 2002 that Company Wrench turned its focus to the demolition market, representing a line of specialty hydraulic attachments. In 2005, Terex Construction Americas began its relationship with Company Wrench to provide local sales and service support for Terex Fuchs scrap and recycling customers operating in Ohio. This gave Company Wrench a full line of purpose-built material handlers designed for the scrap, recycling and demolition markets. With its strong bent on serving these markets, Company Wrench immediately became a top-performing distributor for the material handler line.
“We took the same philosophy of 24-7 repair services demanded by the customer in the heavy wrecker business and adapted it to the scrap business for the Terex Fuchs line,” comments Gleckler. “We also offer a buy-back program as part of our support package.”
“The biggest cost is when a company’s equipment is down, and we make sure we have a service technician to the jobsite the same day we receive the call,” adds Gabbard. “If a customer is in a remote location, we’ll fly the service personnel to the jobsite on our own plane to ensure he is up and running as quickly as possible.”
It is this dedication to the customer that has enabled Company Wrench to grow from 1 to 12 locations in 6 years. The #1 Terex Fuchs equipment distributor award was presented to Company Wrench officials by Terex Construction Americas representatives Dean Barley, Chris Koch and Kristy Jennings in a ceremony held on May 1, 2012 at the distributor’s headquarters location in Carroll, Ohio.
Joining Terex Construction Americas and Company Wrench officials were a host of local and state dignitaries, including representatives from the offices of Governor John Kasich and Congressman Steve Austria of Ohio’s 7th District. In addition to being named the top Terex Fuchs equipment distributor for 2011, Company Wrench received proclamations from the offices of both Governor Kasich and Congressman Austria.
From a small initial territory representing Terex Fuchs material handlers, Company Wrench now offers sales and service support for multiple states in the Midwestern and Southern regions for Terex Fuchs. “This is a well-deserved honor for Company Wrench,” says Chris Koch, divisional sales manager for Terex Construction Americas. “They are a top-notch organization and one of our most dedicated distributors, not only to the product line but, more importantly, to the customer. We congratulate them on their success.”
