Stertil-Koni has expanded its network of exclusive distributors with the addition of Garage Equipment Solutions (GES), based in Rensselaer, N.Y. Garage Equipment Solutions specializes in vehicle equipment and service to customers in eastern New York State, Vermont, western Massachusetts and western Connecticut.
In addition to having knowledge of the territory, GES is recognized for delivering superior customer service, further aligning itself with Stertil-Koni’s business philosophy, which it calls “Koni Kare,” according to an announcement. GES has focused on wheel service, vehicle lifts, waste oil, air, lube and storage systems, plus service for vehicle repair shops. Now, GES is poised to expand its presence in the sector of heavy-duty vehicle lifting systems.
A relationship between Stertil-Koni and GES took form when founder Peter Corsi had met Ed Carr, owner of D.L. Carr, a Stertil-Koni distributor, also based in New York State. GES and D.L. Carr developed a strong association by working together on several heavy-duty vehicle lift installation projects.
“While new to Stertil-Koni, the GES team has vast experience in the vehicle lift industry. GES President Leon Fiacco has a long and successful history in finance and business management,” says Dr. Jean DellAmore, president at Stertil-Koni USA. “We are delighted to welcome Garage Equipment Solutions into the Stertil-Koni family.”
Joining Fiacco in top management at GES is its sales manager, Chris Holmes, who has 35 years of automotive industry knowledge, coupled with 12 years in vehicle lift sales.
“We are excited to represent Stertil-Koni and contribute to its well-earned reputation at the top of the heavy-duty vehicle lift sector,” says Fiacco. “With our headquarters located near the capital of New York State, Albany, and the opportunity to increase heavy-duty vehicle lifts sales and service across the New England area, GES is fully equipped to deliver Stertil-Koni’s award-winning range of lifting systems to a broader range of customers in the Northeast region.”
