Dueco expands into new facility and adds support staff
By Lindsey Anderson09 September 2013
Dueco, Inc., one of the largest privately owned providers of Terex Utilities Hi-Ranger bucket trucks, digger derricks, cranes, stringing and tensioning, backyard equipment and utility trailers has moved into a new 22,500 square-foot service facility in Thomasville, PA, just 12 miles from its former facility in York, PA. The company relocated to the Thomasville facility to "accommodate growth and be even more responsive to customer needs," it said.
Dueco said the facility has easy access and plentiful yard space.
The company also appointed Michael Charles as Eastern region service manager, replacing Greg Adler. Adler is returning to Waukesha, WI headquarters in a new role as Dueco aftermarket sales specialist.
Charles will be based at the new Thomasville, PA facility, where he will provide direction for growth in the service business throughout the East Coast area and the Midwestern area supported from the Medina, OH service center. Charles previously served as regional aftermarket business manager at JCB North America; director of parts, service and warranty for The Reading Group; aftermarket manager for Terex Corp.; and parts sales manager and Eastern parts sales manager for McNeilus Companies, an Oshkosh Corp.
“I'm excited to be part of an organization that prides itself on being customer focused and customer driven," Charles said. "I look forward to applying my skills and expertise to further grow, develop and accomplish Dueco's goals in the Eastern region."
Greg Adler, aftermarket sales specialist, assumes responsibility to further expand the service, training, parts, tooling and accessories offering to the utilities, tree care and signage markets.
Adler has 33 years of service with Dueco and recently led the planning and execution of the move to the significantly larger service facility in Thomasville after leading the service team for 9 years at the York facility. Adler has also served as installation supervisor and Midwest service and parts manager during his career with Dueco.
“I’m looking forward to this new and uncharted experience at Dueco where I can apply my expertise to help build new relationships and expand Dueco's reach into the aftermarket utility field," Adler said.
