Editor Allan Leibowitz comments on the news of the week
This week, we report on a couple of dealer appointments. Such announcements are regular features of our newsletters and they represent an important source of information.
Not only are these news items of interest to end-users who learn where they can buy equipment in their local markets, they also reflect which brands are growing and shrinking.
And they are a barometer of dealer success. When a multi-brand dealer adds a new line, it generally reflects growth - or at least adaptation to changing market conditions. Often, landing a new brand means new jobs and sometimes even expanded facilities. So these are good news stories all round.
If you are a dealer who is expanding your business, either through a new brand or via the opening of additional sites, please let us know.

From 1912 to 1948, gold, silver and bronze medals were awarded for literature, architecture, sculpture, painting, and music as part of the modern Olympic Games. Art works were required to be inspired by athletic endeavors. After heated debate about their place in the games, the art events were eventually removed. The 151 medals awarded were officially stricken from the Olympic record.
