Takeuchi-US has recognized Feenaughty Machinery Company, with locations along the I-5 corridor in Portland and Eugene,Oregon and Woodinville, Washington, as Takeuchi’s North American Dealer of the Year for 2022. Dealers of the Year are chosen based on factors including sales volume, market share performance, training efforts, facilities and image and full-line representation.
Feenaughty Machinery supplies construction and forestry customers throughout Western Oregon and Washington State. The company earned this same honor back in 2019. Further building upon Feenaughty’s tradition of excellence, Billy Parker, a territory sales manager at Feenaughty’s Portland location, received Takeuchi’s Salesperson of the Year award, ranking number one in retail sales for North America during 2022.
“The team at Feenaughty Machinery has served generations of customers throughout the Pacific Northwest,” said Shay Klusmeyer, Takeuchi’s Western Region divisional sales manager. “While the equipment industry continues to evolve, Feenaughty Machinery maintains a strong dedication to honesty and integrity that keeps their current customers coming back and brings new customers in the door.”
Parker has been a territory sales manager with Feenaughty Machinery since 2008. Over the past 15 years, he has honed his leadership, customer service, sales and management skills, helping hundreds of customers find just the right equipment solutions.
“Billy has a high level of equipment expertise and excellent personal skills that inspire customer loyalty and trust,” Klusmeyer said. “All of us at Takeuchi congratulate Billy on an outstanding year, and we sincerely thank him for his sales efforts on our behalf.”
Feenaughty Machinery Co. began back in 1901 when founder and Irish immigrant William Orlando Feenaughty moved from New York to Portland planning to work in the timber industry. Instead, he started his own machinery company, selling different types of equipment before filling a niche in the construction and forestry industries. Still a family-owned business more than a century later, Feenaughty Machinery prides itself on maintaining excellent customer relationships and providing exceptional service.
“We’re very honored to receive this award from Takeuchi once again,” said Brendan Green, general manager of Feenaughty Machinery. “Certainly, Billy Parker’s efforts have factored into our achievements in 2022, and I want to recognize him for his many contributions. Receiving this kind of an award assures us that we’re continuing to do the right things as an equipment dealer, and we hope to enjoy even greater success with Takeuchi in the future.”
“I’m very honored to receive Takeuchi’s Top Dealer Salesperson Award,” said Parker. “I’ve been a part of the Feenaughty Machinery family for a long time, and I honestly enjoy what I do here. Working with our customers inspires me, and I have a passion for helping them discover easier, better ways to get their jobs done. I sincerely thank Randy and everyone here at Feenaughty for their support, and I’m looking forward to another great year in 2023.”
