|KION Group, Linde Material Handling’s parent company, introduced the “Palmetto Award” in 2015. The award was designed to recognize Linde dealers throughout North America that achieved KION’s aggressive annual sales goals.
Linde Material Handling, the leading forklift in Europe, is committed to the North American market and has assembled plans for dealers to market the Linde forklift line effectively in their areas of primary responsibility (APR).
Bob Bond, President of Tri-Lift NC, Inc. stated “We added the Linde line of forklifts two years ago for a couple of reasons. One was the quality of the product. Linde forklifts are simply unparalleled in terms of engineering, design and manufacturing. We wanted a forklift line that was suited for the most demanding industries in North and South Carolina. The second reason was Linde’s commitment to the North American market.” He went on to ad “We put together marketing and sales plans of our own to achieve the goals established by Linde, and we are very proud of all of the associates at Tri-Lift NC, Inc. who made this award possible.”
