Totem Equipment & Supply has been named the first SANY America excavator dealer in Alaska, representing SANY in the Anchorage market.

"There is a lot of opportunity in Alaska and we’re excited to partner with a company that has found the key to success for over 50 years," said Eric Teague, vice president of earthmoving at SANY America. "Totem is another family-owned success story with a dedicated heritage of trust, dependability and customer service. We look forward to a great partnership."

Totem Equipment & Supply was founded in 1961 by Cliff Huston and his wife/business partner Allie Huston. Today under the ownership of Mike Huston the family business continues to thrive as Alaska’s leading equipment distributor and full-service rental company. Totem meets customer needs with a variety of products, including pressure washer trailers, dump trailers, light tower trailers and more. The company also includes a full fabrication facility.

"We heard a lot of good things about SANY and when I visited their operations in Georgia I knew it was a good fit for us," said owner Mike Huston. "They listen as a company and their product is solid. We like that they use name-brand components and that the product will lend itself well to the cold, rough conditions we often face here in Alaska. We’re glad to get in on the ground-floor as one of the initial dealers for SANY."

SANY America’s excavator offerings include the 7.5-ton (6.8 t) SY75C, the 13.5-ton (12.2 t) SY135C, the 21.5-ton (19.5 t) SY215C and the 23.5-ton (21 t) SY235C. Additional models will be introduced in North America in the coming year. SANY excavators feature low overall owner operating costs, ease of operation, low operating noise and solid excavator performance.
