Big News at SkidSteerSolutions.com
If you ever felt intrigued by one of our products or had a question about an application or maybe a machine issue, you have likely called in and spoken with the kind and helpful guy named Craig. That's our Australian sales director or as we call him, "Skippy".
Skippy left us 8 years ago for his homeland of Australia to be with family and to start one of his own. He's answered most all of your calls, thousand's of your emails and he's done this all from a completely opposite time zone. Yes, he did a lot of nightshifts just to beat the rain and cold of the Pacific Northwest but anything for the beaches and warm weather over there, he says.
So what's with this story? Welcome back?
Well, it has been a few years in the making and it is finally here. Craig is back in the USA and we are happy to have him back!
Send him a live chat message saying G'day, maybe he can help you out with some attachments!
