Builtrite Appoints Two New Distributors in the Southeast

The distributors will market Builtrite's products in Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi and in the Florida Panhandle.

Builtrite Manufacturing announced the appointment of two distributors for the Southeast Region to fulfill its mission of expanding its sales and service network throughout North America.

Ingram Equipment, headquartered in Pelham, Ala., specializes in truck mounted cranes, garbage trucks, vacuum trucks, roll off trucks and other waste equipment. It will handle Builtrite’s line of truck mounted material handlers, stationary electric material handlers and attachments for the states of Alabama, Mississippi and the Florida Panhandle.

“After my initial introduction of Builtrite products from Mike Walter, their SE Regional Manager, along with a subsequent trip to their Two Harbors plant and visit to several customers, it became clear to me that Builtrite would be a great fit for our company and its vision of expanding our product offerings into the markets we already serve, in addition to those we would like to purse, like scrap recycling. We are very pleased with joining the Builtrite team,” Jeff Martin, president and general manager of Ingram, said in a statement.

Utility Equipment Service (UES) is the other distributor tapped by Builtrite. It will represent the company in the Tennessee market.

pecializing in the sales and service of bucket trucks, truck mounted cranes, truck bodies, and other waste equipment, UES caters primarily to the utility, municipality and general con­struction markets. “We were aggressively looking to expand our footprint in the Tennessee marketplace by offering new products that fit with our company’s capabilities, expanded offerings to our cur­rent clientele and expanding to new markets, to better diversify and allow our company to grow,” UES President William Horton said in a statement. “After carefully vetting the Builtrite team and its products, it became clear to us that we will both benefit through this partnership.”
