Toyota Material Handling U.S.A., the sole distributor of Aichi Aerial Work Platforms in the United States, last week appointed Alan Dotts to the new position of manager, AWP specialist.

Dotts has 18 years experience in AWP product sales and support and most recently served as general manager of Aichi U.S.A. He is responsible for the development of AWP business within the newly formed Toyota Aichi dealer group, which oversees distribution of Aichi scissorlifts, and wheeled and crawler boomlifts in the U.S.

“We are pleased to welcome Alan Dotts to our team,” said Brett Wood, president of TMHU. “His proven track record of success in AWP sales and his intimate knowledge of the Aichi brand will undoubtedly contribute to the ongoing success of the Toyota Aichi dealer group.”

Since its founding in 1962, Aichi has worked to improve work environments in cooperation with its customers to create safer, more efficient and comfortable work sites for industries such as the utility, communication and construction industries.
