Brian MacFarland has joined MEC Aerial Work Platforms as vice president of parts.

In this role, his primary focus is expanding the MEC Parts department which not only offers MEC parts, but all other name brand parts for MEWPs.

MacFarland comes to MEC with 25 years of industry experience and plans to bolster MEC Parts eCommerce and the overall customer experience.

“Through his prior role at Equipment Parts Wholesale, Brian set a strong foundation for partnership with MEC and our customers,” said MEC President David White. “We are excited to have him bring that same strength, knowledge and customer focus to MEC.  He understands the value our parts business brings our customers to reduce downtime and maximize their ROI.”

MacFarland entered the industry in product support at UpRight in 1995. He was promoted to technical support manager, then parts and product support manager. In 2006, MacFarland joined Equipment Parts Wholesale as general manager. There, he added a division that produced decals and one that manufactured joystick controllers. He was later promoted to president. During his career at EPW, he oversaw several facilities across the U.S. until the company was sold to TVH.

“I am very excited to join the team at MEC and help to grow the parts division,” MacFarland said. “We are focused on building a parts department to provide customer service excellence for not only MEC parts but for all parts needed for the MEWP industry.”
