The North American Equipment Dealers Association (NAEDA) and its affiliated associations are committed to helping dealers succeed.
Caterpillar Inc's (CAT.N) dealers reported a double-digit sales jump for the three-month period ended in August, partly due to strong sales in North America as customers replaced aging equipment.
Retail dealers for the world's largest heavy equipment maker reported a 13 percent sales increase for the June-through-August period. The figure is down slightly from the 14 percent increase for the May-through-July period, the company said in a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
Peoria, Illinois-based Caterpillar said dealer sales in North America -- where most of the company's revenue comes from -- were up 24 percent for the period, and dealer sales in Asia/Pacific -- the second-largest region -- were up 27 percent.
While the U.S. economy remains depressed, many construction firms are having to replace aging heavy equipment, boosting Caterpillar and its peers.
For the past several months, eight task groups have been working behind the scenes to address the priorities or focus areas for transitioning NAEDA to a new governance model. Later this month, the task groups will present their findings and recommendations to the NAEDA Board of Directors for consideration. The meeting promises to be an exciting opportunity to plot the course for significant change within the association - change that will enhance service to the members and better position NAEDA for continued success.
