NASHVILLE, TN — Takeuchi recently announced its top dealers, Dealer of the Year, Dealer Salesperson of the Year, and the recipients of the 2023 Dealer 360° awards at the company’s 2024 Dealer Summit in San Antonio, Texas. These awards recognize Takeuchi dealers across the U.S. and Canada for excellence in sales performance, facilities, training, accounts receivables, marketing/parts, and service.

“Our Dealer 360° awards program outlines a unified standard of operation that promotes consistency among Takeuchi dealers,” said Jeff Stewart, President of Takeuchi-US. “We obviously want our dealers to be successful, and it’s our job to support them and provide the tools to make that possible.”

For their achievements in all program categories, the top five Takeuchi dealers for 2023 will head to Japan for a visit to Takeuchi’s global headquarters. The top dealers in the Dixie Contractor area are:

  • Parman Tractor & Equipment (Tennessee)
  • Bennett Equipment & Supply (Georgia and South Carolina)
  • Power Equipment (Tennessee and Arkansas)

Parman Tractor & Equipment of Nashville, Tennessee, earned the Takeuchi Dealer of the Year Award for 2023. The dealership focuses on providing service and machine expertise, making them a partner customers return to again and again for their equipment needs.

“The team at Parman Tractor always goes the extra mile for their customers,” said Shay Klusmeyer, Western Division Sales Manager for Takeuchi-US. “They embody the standards that we’ve set forth for Takeuchi dealers, and they’re always seeking continuous improvement. We’re proud to have Parman Tractor carry the Takeuchi equipment line.”

The dealer in the Dixie Contractor area that successfully met or exceeded the Dealer 360° criteria standards by December 31, 2023, is Alta Equipment Company in Florida.

“We’re incredibly pleased with the performance of our growing dealer network over this past year,” Stewart said. “Their dedication and commitment to excellence have helped Takeuchi continue to increase its market share in North America. We thank them for an outstanding 2023, and we look forward to an even better year in 2024.”

For an unprecedented sixth time, Takeuchi-US recognized Bill Smith of Cobb County Tractor in Marietta, Georgia, as its top-performing dealer salesperson in North America. Smith took home top honors after ranking No. 1 in retail sales for North America.

“Bill continues to challenge himself to be our top dealer salesperson, year after year,” said John Vranches, Eastern Division Sales Manager for Takeuchi-US. “His customers say he has an uncanny way of knowing exactly what equipment they need to tackle their projects. He’s always able to identify the best possible solution, and that kind of experience isn’t easy to find. We congratulate Bill on yet another successful year, and we challenge him to outdo himself yet again in 2024.”
