PEACHTREE CITY, Georgia (Aug. 16, 2012) — Binder Machinery Company of South Plainfield, New Jersey, one of the most respected heavy equipment dealers on the East Coast, has been named a dealer for SANY America’s lineup of port equipment. Binder will serve customers in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Delaware and eastern Pennsylvania.
“SANY is a brand built on quality, so we look for dealer partners with a record of quality customer service and support,” said Kyle Nape, vice president of global sales & marketing for SANY America. “Binder Machinery has a stellar record of customer care that makes them a natural fit to sell and support our port equipment line. We’re very excited to partner with them again.
Binder Machinery Company was founded in 1957 by equipment salesman Walter Binder. It has flourished ever since as a family-run equipment business known for quality machines and unparalleled customer support. The company is now headed by Robert C. Binder as chairman and Brendan Binder as president. Binder becomes the first SANY America port equipment dealer in North America.
“We’re already a SANY crane dealer, so addition of the port equipment line was a good fit for us,” said Brendan Binder, who also serves as chief operating officer. “We look forward to marketing SANY’s well-crafted line of port machines. It adds a dimension to our business and allows us to serve even more customers in our market.”
SANY America’s port equipment lineup includes four models of container reach stackers, which are used to move and stack cargo containers at seaports all over the world.
