Woods Construction Division Outpaces Market Growth

Wed April 13, 2011 - National Edition

Woods Equipment Company’s construction division advanced its market position in 2010 with double-digit growth. The results are attributed to the company’s ability to deliver products to its dealers within 10 days of ordering.

“This quick turnaround is vital to ensuring our dealers remain competitive,” said Jerry Johnson, president of Woods Products Division. “We understand that our success is dependent upon our dealers, and work diligently to ensure they are responsive to their customers.”

Woods’ focus on exceptional service to dealers also is evidenced by:

• Product design customization based on application needs

• Competitive discounts

• Government bid and fleet discount programs

• Free shipping on qualified orders

• Electronic invoicing and statements

In looking ahead to 2011, Woods expects continued strength in the market.

“We’re investing in the company, we’re committed to our employees and we’re listening to our dealers,” said Johnson. “These are the business practices that have sustained Woods since 1946. Now, we’re better than ever at using them to drive growth.”
