Terry Troutman worked for Hoist Liftruck Manufacturing for the past 12 years developing a dealer network worldwide, providing product training to dealer sales specialists, and managing a domestic and international territory for new forklift sales. He has over 25 years of experience in the forklift industry in North America and Europe. His experience will help ACS to develop a dealer network for marketing this exciting new product in North America.

"Having experienced first hand Speedshield working so well in Australia and that one company can offer all these features, I think the product will gain remarkable acceptance in North America" said Terry. "I have seen it used and accepted in steel and paper companies, as well as automotive plants. These are some of the toughest people on forklifts and hard to please. It is great to be able to get increased safety, productivity, and reliability from one easy to install product."

Terry will be responsible for establishing relationships with forklift dealers and fleet owners throughout North America. He will assist their sales people and verify specifications and requirements of their customers. Dealers will be trained to install systems for their customers.

Fact of the week

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.
