Talbert Manufacturing has named David Henderson as its dealer development manager, creating the position to support its growing dealer network.
In this position Henderson will work closely with dealers and regional sales managers to develop and grow the company across the U.S. and Canada. He has nearly 30 years of experience in the heavy truck and equipment industry, previously holding the position of territory manager and OEM sales for Patz Corporation of Pound, Wisconsin. Henderson has also held sales and management positions in large equipment dealers.
Henderson’s initial focus will be support for Talbert’s Tag-A-Long Series, Traveling Axle Series and Hydraulic Tail Series trailers. The recent expansion of the company’s Liberty, North Carolina facility doubled production capabilities for these lines. It also allowed the company to specialize its production between Liberty and the original facility in Rensselaer, Indiana.
“Talbert Manufacturing had outgrown our capacity, so, with the North Carolina expansion, we made a strategic step toward maximizing our potential,” says Troy Geisler, Talbert Manufacturing vice president of sales and marketing. “Along with increased production, we recognized the need to increase support for our dealers through a centralized position. Their success is our success.”
