The fit is good for both companies—as well as customers requiring heavy duty vehicle lifting systems in their maintenance facilities—particularly in light of GES’s capabilities and familiarity with the Stertil-Koni product line.
Here’s why: location and experience.
GES specializes in vehicle equipment and service to customers in eastern New York state, Vermont, western Massachusetts and western Connecticut.
The equipment distributor also is recognized for delivering superior customer service, Stertil-Koni said, further aligning itself with Stertil-Koni’s business philosophy, which it calls “Koni Kare.” GES previously 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 demanding sector of heavy duty vehicle lifting systems.
“While new to Stertil-Koni, the GES team has vast experience in the vehicle lift industry,” said Dr. Jean DellAmore, president of Stertil-Koni USA. “GES President Leon Fiacco has a long and successful history in finance and business management.
“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, a Marketing and Business Management major at Long Island University-Post. Holmes brings 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,” Fiacco said. “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.”
