LiuGong North America Continues to Expand Dealer Network in U.S.

LiuGong North America has appointed five new construction equipment dealers in the U.S. recently, expanding their ever-growing dealer network. These dealerships provide the LiuGong and Dressta brands to areas of the country that previously did not have the opportunity to put them to the test.

Mechanical & Irrigation Solutions (MIS), of Yuba City, Calif., was founded in 2008 by Jas Thiara. MIS offers LiuGong machines throughout Northern California from their locations in Olivehurst, Sacramento, Redding, Chico, Yuba City, Marysville and the surrounding communities.

JPS Equipment Rental provides heavy equipment rental, now including LiuGong and Dressta machines, from their locations in Bossier City, West Monroe, Alexandria, and Gonzales in Louisiana, as well as their El Dorado, Ark., store.

Big Red, Inc., now offers LiuGong and Dressta construction equipment from their locations in Charleston, S.C., and Savannah, Ga. They also offer the LiuGong forklift and material handling line to their customers.

Rifle Equipment, LLC, of Rifle, Colo., has served the area since 2003.  The city is located roughly halfway between Aspen and Grand Junction. The dealership has represented both the LiuGong and Dressta brands since October of 2019.

IEDA Hosts Annual Meeting and Vendor Expo in Orlando

The Independent Equipment Dealers Association (IEDA) is proud to report another successful Annual Meeting and Vendor Expo weekend in 2020. From February 14 to 16, more than 200 equipment dealers and associates from around the globe met at Reunion Resort in Orlando, Florida, to discuss industry trends, network, play golf, and have fun.

The weekend kicked off with a Welcome Reception on Friday evening to break the ice and get everyone acquainted with one another. There was a great turnout and some great conversations.

Saturday’s Annual Meeting and Vendor Expo was well attended and well received by IEDA members and associates alike.  The speaker line-up included a New York Times Bestselling writer, some top industry veterans, financial experts, and more.  IEDA standard members are continually impressed by the products and services offered by associate members, who in turn find the Expo to be a great opportunity for constructive conversation and networking.

IEDA’s Annual Golf Tournament on Sunday morning was filled with lots of sun, smiles, and sportsmanship.  The players always have a great time golfing with old friends and meeting new ones.  That evening’s Meet and Greet was a wonderful event for additional casual networking opportunities.

“The energy, enthusiasm, and knowledge brought here by our members never ceases to amaze me,” said IEDA President Luke Brenner.  “Everyone in attendance has something valuable to bring to the IEDA whether they know it or not.  This is how we help each other grow and stay successful – by sharing our experiences at events like this and participating in the IEDA community.”

IEDA couldn’t have pulled off such a successful event without the help of their sponsors – in particular, Trophy Tractor and Performance Equipment – as well as the speakers and attendees.  IEDA would like to thank everyone for their continued support and enthusiasm.

Moving forward, the IEDA will continue to unite its members throughout the year to network and learn from one another. The IEDA will meet next this fall. Check the association’s events page at iedagroup.com for more information.
