Petersen Industries, Inc. announces TransPro Equipment Sales, LLC as the exclusive dealer for the entire state of Georgia

Lake Wales, Florida, March 13, 2015 – Petersen Industries, Inc., manufacturer of grapple trucks and bulky waste collection systems, is proud to announce that TransPro Equipment Sales is now the sole and exclusive dealer for the entire state of Georgia.  In late 2013, TransPro Equipment Sales, LLC became an official dealer for Petersen Industries in Georgia with the exception of the northern portion of the state.

“In their short time as a dealer for Petersen they have proved themselves to be highly valuable.  In 2014, they earned the rank of 4th place in the top five producing Petersen dealers while servicing only the southern portion of the state of Georgia.  Their hard work and dedication to Petersen Industries is why we decided to extend TransPro’s dealer territory.  We are very proud of their achievements thus far and look forward to many more successful years with them in their newly extended territory”, said Sam Petersen, VP of Petersen Industries.
