By March 11, 2024News

Takeuchi-US has named Scott Utzman as its new attachment specialist. In this role, Utzman will be responsible for attachment sales and support for the company’s dealer and national rental accounts throughout North America. He will work with dealer management, sales personnel and their customers to demonstrate, promote and support the Takeuchi attachment product line. Utzman will also train dealer sales personnel on attachment features, benefits and applications.

“Attachments are an essential and growing part of the compact equipment industry,” said Henry Lawson, director of North American sales for Takeuchi. “Scott’s extensive experience in product and attachment development will be vital as we continue to expand this segment of our business. We look forward to Scott’s contribution to our overall attachment sales and support efforts.”

Utzman joined Takeuchi-US in 2005 as the company’s regional parts manager, eventually promoting to assistant parts manager and national parts manager. From there, he applied his extensive parts experience to a new career path as a customer support manager, eventually managing Takeuchi’s Attachment Program when it launched in early 2021.

“I’m really excited to continue working with customers and dealers to find attachment solutions that help them achieve their goals,” Utzman said. “I’ve been involved with Takeuchi’s Attachment Program from the beginning, ensuring that customers who purchase a Takeuchi-branded attachment get the level of quality and dependability that they’ve come to expect from us. Now, I’ll be out in the field, working with our dealers to help improve their customers’ productivity and get greater returns on their machine investments.”
