Wed July 31, 2013 - National Edition

Kobelco Construction Machinery USA appointed Dennis Hines as a technical parts assistant in support of the brand’s relaunch in North America. Hines brings with him to Kobelco more than 20 years of industry specific parts and technical service experience.

Although this position is new to Hines, the Kobelco brand is not. He served as a parts technician for Kobelco from 1988 to 2003. Returning to the company in a similar position ensures he’ll be able to pick up where he left off.

“Having the opportunity to rejoin Kobelco’s parts and service team is a great honor,” said Hines. “As a former employee, I am looking forward to once again being part of an organization that is driven by passion; Passion for its people, its products, its service and its customers. Parts and service is so critical in this industry. Kobelco understands that. It’s ingrained in the company culture on every level.”

Hines will be responsible for locating parts and fulfilling parts orders and for providing customers and dealers with pricing, availability and lead times. He will assist with inventory control and the overall day-to-day operation of Kobelco’s parts distribution facility in Houston, Texas.

“Dennis has a long history and proven track record as a parts assistant,” said George Lumpkins, product marketing manager of Kobelco. “His skills and experience in the industry will benefit our service department tremendously.”
