Polaris has signed a dealer agreement with distribution and service partner Eastern Lift Truck for Polaris' full line of commercial vehicles, which includes the Pro XD all-terrain utility task vehicles (UTVs), GEM street-legal, all-electric, low-speed vehicles (LSVs) and Taylor-Dunn materials handling utility vehicles, stock chasers, tow tractors and personnel carriers. While Eastern Lift Truck has been a Taylor-Dunn distributor for many years, the new agreement expands the dealer's territory from approximately 60 to 100 counties in the Mid-Atlantic region. Eastern Lift Truck is also starting up a new Commercial Vehicle Division to grow in these expanded territories with the new product portfolio. The new division will be headed by Joe Cruz. Aaron Stegemann, director of sales of Polaris Commercial, says Eastern Lift Truck's reputation for customer service is well-known in industries that demand and deserve it. "We believe they will continue this exceptional support for this expanded portfolio, and satisfy any small vehicle needs their customers have." Dan Pruitt, president of Eastern Lift Truck, is excited to bring the Polaris Pro XD and GEM vehicles to his customers and offer an expanded representation for Taylor-Dunn. "Many of our customers are already familiar with the quality of Taylor-Dunn vehicles. We expect to introduce many new customers to the tough diesel and gas Polaris UTVs and efficient GEM electric cars." Polaris Commercial offers a comprehensive line of durable, versatile and customisable work vehicle solutions for transporting people and hauling equipment in urban and industrial applications. Founded in 1971, Eastern Lift Truck is an award-winning, family-owned business with approximately 880 employees located in seven states.
