Chicago Pneumatic has named Orlando, Fla.-based manufacturers’ rep group Christy Rental Associates as a representative to foster relationships with rental companies and equipment dealers in Florida and the Caribbean. Christy Rental Associates provides product training and inventory capability from its 30,000-square-foot facility in Orlando.

A key part of Christy’s strategy is implementing a proactive education program for dealers to raise the level of knowledge and build relationships throughout the distribution process.

“To be representing the Chicago Pneumatic line is very exciting,” said John Christy, president of Christy Rental Associates. “We’re looking forward to furthering exposure for the reliable construction equipment brand and building those relationships with dealers in our region.”

“Christy is a well-respected, trusted name when it comes to rep agencies in the Southeast,” said John Vogel, executive vice president of Chicago Pneumatic Construction Equipment. “We are simply thrilled to have Christy Rental Associates representing the Chicago Pneumatic line and to be reaching out to reputable equipment dealers in the region on our behalf.”
