Posted: 1/10/2014 | Views: 512

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (Jan. 9, 2014)---The Engines and Power Products Division of Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. is strengthening its OEM sales operations with the addition of two OEM sales managers who will report to Tim Malinowski, senior sales manager-OEM sales.  Malinowski said that the appointments of Bryant Huyser and Darrell Hyde are effective immediately.

Huyser has been with Kawasaki since 2007, most recently as the senior sales coordinator following a role as the sales and inventory coordinator. His well-established relationships with OEM companies and his extensive knowledge of the company’s manufacturing processes at its Maryville, Mo. facility will support his ability to easily transition to his new post.

Hyde, who comes to Kawasaki from Suspa Inc., a marketer of industrial gas springs and dampening products following a position related to the turf and construction industries with United Rentals, will focus on business expansion in the commercial and related markets.

“These additions to our team will enhance the company’s ability to expand on the relationships that have been built with our OEM partners over the past years,” said Malinowski.

According to Malinowski, both of the new sales managers will be taking care of current customers and also developing new opportunities for the brand. Kawasaki works with some of the most recognized names in the lawn and garden industry, as well as with industrial and golf industry vehicle manufacturers.

Most of the company’s engines are built by Kawasaki Motors Manufacturing Corp., U.S.A. in Maryville. The KMM facility recently celebrated the completion of more than seven million units since opening in 1989.

Kawasaki Engines and Power Products, a division of Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A., distributes gasoline engines and professional handheld power products for landscape, industrial, and consumer markets. The division is headquartered in Grand Rapids, Mich., and services customers through its network of more than 7,500 independent dealers through the United States, Canada, and U.S. Trust Territories of the Pacific, including Guam
