CAT, Mitsubishi, Jungheinrich Reps Change in Carolinas

Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc. (MCFA), Houston, Texas, announced it has appointed G&W Equipment to represent its three flagship brands—Cat lift trucks, Mitsubishi forklift trucks, and Jungheinrich warehouse products—in the western portion of North Carolina and South Carolina.

G&W Equipment, Inc. was founded in 1963 and has been under current ownership of the Mike Sabbagh family since 1988. The family has been a Mitsubishi forklift truck dealer in this same territory since 1997, with facilities in Charlotte and Greensboro, N.C., and Greenville and Columbia, S.C.

“G&W Equipment has been a longstanding and reliable partner to MCFA for more than a decade,” said Kent Eudy, vice president for sales and marketing at MCFA. “Their experience with our Mitsubishi forklift truck brand of products allows for a seamless transition over to representation of Cat lift trucks and Jungheinrich brands.”

MCFA has awarded G&W Equipment their prestigious “Five Star Customer Service” award on numerous occasions. G&W is also a perennial “Dealer of Excellence”, having achieved ‘Dealer of the Year’ status multiple times in the past 15 years of service.

“Loyal users of Cat lift trucks and Jungheinrich forklifts can rest assured that the G&W team is well prepared to carry on the longstanding tradition of excellence and dependability they have come to expect from our products,” said Eudy.

G&W Equipment, Inc. will immediately assume representation responsibilities for all MCFA brands in the western portion of North Carolina and South Carolina, while Gregory Poole Equipment Company continues to represent the brands in the eastern portion of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia.
