Hal Nowell, director of sales for Mississippi-based Taylor International, has announced the addition of four new dealerships in the Latin American and Caribbean region. The forklift manufacturer has added dealers in Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Guyana and Suriname.
The new dealer in Costa Rica is the Larce Group, while IMEQ Dominicana, based in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, has been added to the Taylor dealer network in that nation. In South America, a new alliance with two different affiliates of Caribbean Welding Supplies Limited (the CWSL Group) will provide Taylor with a dealership presence in Guyana and Suriname
“The Dominican Republic is a very significant and active market in the Caribbean and extremely important to Taylor International,” says Nowell. “We made it a priority to have a dealer that could provide our existent and new customers with first-class service in this market. IMEQ shares the same commitment to high standards as the Taylor brand, and we are excited to welcome them to the Taylor family of dealers.”
Of the Larce Group in Costa Rica, Nowell says, “Larce’s business capabilities, high standards, and exceptional reputation in the industrial equipment sector were among the main reasons we chose them to represent Taylor in Costa Rica.” Nowell describes Larce Group as a family business that was founded in 1949.
The CWSL Group was founded in Trinidad & Tobago in 1994 and is described by Taylor International as a provider of industrial, construction and agricultural equipment sales, service and rentals to both the public and private sectors. “We are excited about the opportunity to expand our footprint in South America through our relationship with CWSL Group of Companies,” Nowell says. “With the recent oil finds and the mining sector growth in both countries, we realize how imperative it is to have a Taylor presence in the region.”
Taylor International is a 94-year-old company that says it “serves the world with the most dependable, longest-lasting, and most cost-effective material handling equipment.”
