Mitsubishi Caterpillar announces representation changes for North and South Carolina

Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc. (MCFA) announced that it has appointed G&W Equipment, Inc. to represent its three brands (Cat® lift trucks, Mitsubishi forklift trucks and Jungheinrich® warehouse products) in the eastern portion of North Carolina and South Carolina. With this change, G&W Equipment now serves as an authorized dealer for all three brands in the entire state of North Carolina, and all counties in South Carolina except for Aiken, Barnwell, Edgefield, and McCormick. 

G&W Equipment was founded in 1963 and has operated under the ownership of the Sabbagh family since 1988. They have served as a Cat lift truck and Jungheinrich dealer in western North Carolina and western South Carolina since 2012, and a Mitsubishi forklift truck dealer since 1997. G&W Equipment has facilities in Charlotte, Greensboro, and Raleigh, North Carolina, and Greenville and Columbia, South Carolina. 

As a result of this territory expansion, G&W Equipment will add new facilities in coming months to their operations in Wilmington and Greenville, North Carolina, and Charleston and Florence, South Carolina.

“G&W Equipment has been a longstanding and reliable partner to MCFA for nearly two decades,” said Kent Eudy, executive vice president for sales and marketing at MCFA. “Their experience with our world-class brands and their commitment to total customer satisfaction allows for a seamless transition into eastern North and South Carolina.”

MCFA has awarded G&W Equipment the prestigious “Five Star Customer Service” award on numerous occasions, and they are a continuing “Dealer of Excellence”, having earned the award multiple times over the past 18 years. 

“Loyal users of Cat lift trucks, Mitsubishi forklift trucks and Jungheinrich warehouse products can rest assured that the G&W team is well prepared to carry on the longstanding tradition of excellence and dependability they have come to expect from our products,” said Eudy.

G&W Equipment will immediately become an authorized dealer for all MCFA brands in the eastern portion of North Carolina and South Carolina, in addition to western North Carolina and western South Carolina where they have operated for years.
