LiuGong Forklift Americas, headquartered in Katy, Texas, announced that Grupo Amex SA de C.V. has joined them as a new dealer in the three northern states of Chihuahu, Coahuila and Durango, Mexico. Grupo Amex, which is headquartered in the city of Chihuahua, has two additional branches in the cities of Ciuadad Juarez and Torreón.  The company has more than 27 years in the materials handling industry in northern Mexico. In business since 1985, Grupo Amex is a privately held company that includes several divisions, all focused on providing quality services and products to the industrial sector. As a solutions provider in the forklift and material handling industry, Grupo Amex has developed a reputation as a client-focused company that puts customer service to the forefront. Its customers are supported by a solid technical, operational and sales infrastructure. Grupo Amex also has a dedicated parts department with a certified service shop to maintain and service the equipment as needed. “We are very excited to have this caliber of dealer join LiuGong” noted Ken Biediger, Manager of Product Development and Product Marketing for LiuGong Forklift Americas. “Their enthusiasm and professional capabilities make them an outstanding partner for us. We expect that Grupo Amex will soon become one of LiuGong’s top Latin American dealers.” Grupo Amex will feature the entire line of LiuGong forklifts which includes 10 battery powered models and 15 internal combustion models powered by diesel or propane fueled engines.  Capacity ranges from 1.5 tons to 16.0 tons in two distinct product lines.  The “Advanced Series” models focus on operator ergonomics and performance to offer a better value than other global competitive brands.  The “Basic Series” targets price conscious customers who prefer a simple, reliable lift truck at a great price.  All models are supported by LiuGong’s superior parts and service support network. LiuGong Forklift Americas operates within LiuGong Construction Machinery N.A. LLC which is a subsidiary of Guangxi LiuGong Machinery Co.
