SUMMERVILLE, S.C. - KION North America Corporation announces the appointment of Bissett Specialty Equipment to its dealer network effective immediately.

The material handling and farm equipment dealer is now authorized to sell and service KION North America’s full product line throughout New Mexico and in El Paso, Texas.

Bissett Specialty Equipment has served New Mexico and southwest Texas for almost 30 years and offers a variety of material handling products. Services provided include on-site maintenance and repair, along with rentals and training.

Carl Bissett, owner of Bissett Specialty Equipment, is an industry veteran who has made a career out of understanding and meeting the material handling needs of growers and warehouse operators for over three decades.

"With KION expanding their product line with both Linde and Baoli trucks, the opportunity for future growth with quality products was clear. We can focus on growth with our established customer base and expand to new customers and markets with the upcoming warehouse portfolio," said Bissett.

Bissett Specialty Equipment is the sixth dealership KION North America has added to their distribution network this year.

"Carl Bissett and his team have been a mainstay of support for material handling customers in New Mexico for many years. Partnering with Bissett Specialty Equipment will have a strong impact to market growth in this region," said Christian Bischof, director of strategy and business development at KION North America.
