Ammann introduces support team for Canadian Compaction customers
November 5, 2008 - Toronto, Ontario - Ammann, Canada’s fastest growing name in compaction equipment, has announced the formation of its first Canadian-based customer service team.
Alexander Greschner, Director Marketing and Sales, Ammann Machines is proud to announce the appointment of Peter Price as Area Sales Manager, Canada and Heinz Stanisz as Technical Support Representative.
Peter Price is well known in North American construction and roadbuilding sectors through his 30-year career in the compaction industry. His experience in compaction product development, as well as a product manager and sales trainer brings a wealth of knowledge for Canadian customers to match the right Ammann product to their specific job requirements. Peter will provide customers and dealers with a single point-of-contact in Canada dedicated to fielding any factory enquiries regarding compacting applications, equipment sales/service and distribution opportunities.
“I have been bridging customer needs to OEMs overseas for most of my working life, so I look forward to making it easy for Canadians to work with Ammann,” he promises. “I’m accustomed to representing top-of-the-line machines, and I was always impressed by the quality of Ammann equipment in my travels to Europe. Now, in Canada, we’re working to ensure that customer service meets that same high quality standard.”
“Our Canadian customers are very happy with the machines,” he reports, “but jobsites are often remote and have to run very hard with a shortened work season. We are focusing on how to be sure the correct tools and parts are used to keep the units going at their very best. Many of the mechanics have been learning by doing. Our more formalized training can help them to learn the most efficient ways to diagnose, troubleshoot and adjust the equipment for their application.”
Founded in 1869, Ammann is recognized as a leading equipment brand internationally with 1600 employees and a broad range of equipment for road construction, earthmoving and mineral processing. In Canada, Ammann specializes in a full line of compaction machines including plate compactors, vibrating rollers featuring the ACE compaction control system, double drum asphalt machines and 30 ton pneumatic tyred rollers and is represented by a growing network of dealers committed to customer service and support.
