The positioning division is the latest addition to West Side Tractor's technology team.
West Side Tractor Sales, the John Deere construction and forestry dealer for Illinois and Indiana, announces a new positioning division within the dealership. With the continuing implementation of technology products into the construction industry, it was time to delegate a full-time focus on the machine control business. The positioning division is the latest addition to West Side Tractor's technology team, which also includes experts in telematics, remote diagnostics and complete fleet monitoring services.
“For 55 years, we have built our business on the importance of customer relationships and understanding their businesses,” said Steve Benck, president and owner of West Side Tractor. “We work diligently to provide productivity enhancing solutions to our customers. Now is the time to be the partner and resource for our customers as they continue to evolve and invest in technology products to enhance their business productivity and profitability.”
Months back, West Side Tractor brought Mike McMahon on-board to lead the positioning division. As the full-time designated grade control specialist, Mike focuses on both sales and product support. He is a constant resource for customers, and also spearheads training and support throughout West Side's robust service team. Mike has sales and product support knowledge with several different machine control brands, but also extensive in-field experience. Prior to joining the dealer world, he was the Machine Control Supervisor for all GPS systems for a large contractor on the East Coast.
“We've already experienced significant growth within the positioning division in just six months, “said Lauren Coffaro, WorkSight Manager at West Side Tractor. “The goal is that by the end of 2017, we'll have a team of grade control specialists throughout West Side's entire territory. We have no doubt that Mike is the one to drive this vision.”
