RE:  Sutphen announces new dealer

Sutphen Corporation announced today that Winstead’s Fire Equipment will be their new dealer in Virginia, Delaware, and Maryland. 

Based out of Denton, Maryland, Winstead’s Fire Equipment is a full service dealership offering sales, service, parts, and repairs for your fire apparatus and EMS vehicles.  In business since 2008, Winstead’s also offers pump service and repair, pump testing, electrical repair, DOT inspections, and equipment mounting. 

Winstead’s Fire Equipment Owner Chris Winstead states, “We, at Winstead’s, are very much looking forward to being a part of a highly respected, family owned and operated company.  Sutphen has an outstanding reputation in the fire apparatus industry.

Chris further explains, “Our mission is to promote Sutphen apparatus throughout our sales territory, and to provide our current and future customers with the highest quality apparatus, service, and parts.”

“This is truly a great and exciting opportunity for us.” says David Rider, North American Sales Manager for the Sutphen Corporation.  “At Sutphen, we know that it’s not just about the sale.  It’s about the relationships we build, and the ability to provide service and continue that relationship after the sale.  Winstead’s comes to us with the ability to be a “one stop shop”, providing everything the customer could ever need.  That is something that is very important to us.”

Rider continues, “We are planning some very aggressive marketing in the coming months leading up to the 2013 trade show season.  Our goal is to grow the Sutphen brand in the Virginia, Maryland, and Delaware territory, and we feel that Winstead’s is the perfect partner for this.”
