I am the Highway Superintendent for Ghent, NY and the President of the Highway Superintendents Association for Columbia County. Heavy equipment is my life. I have been involved with heavy equipment for 28 years from operating to turning wrenches to building custom trucks to now operating a Highway Department, with over 80 pieces of equipment that I use to maintain 142 lane miles of highway. I find the most important thing in helping me to run an effective and efficient operation is your equipment.
I have been dealing with Everest for 13 years now. I depend on my Everest Equipment daily and as my old equipment needs to be upgraded I will be replacing it with new Everest Equipment. I value and look forward to my ongoing working relationship with the Everest Equipment.
Successful long-term strategic vendor partnerships are few and far between, but working with Everest has proven time and time again to be the right decision for us. We've put our family's name on our business and are proud to have our reputation associated with Everest Equipment as Zwack, Inc's supplier of choice for snow removal and ice control products.
Everest Equipment provides us quality products and service with the responsiveness and expertise that we (and our customers) expect. An excellent sales support team and responsive supply chain provide us the ability to offer the right product at the right time to our customers.
Zwack Incorporated is proud to partner with Everest Equipment for the last 30 years. Located in upstate New York, Zwack Inc's Road Equipment Division works with over 300 municipalities in New York, Massachusetts and surrounding states for their highway maintenance and snow removal needs. We promise our customers with solutions of the best durability, performance and reliability, and our collaboration with Everest ensures that promise.
In my line of work you need equipment you can count on, you just can’t afford downtime. High quality, efficient, well constructed, user friendly, durable, versatile and most of all reliable. You might think I am talking all about the product but I am not. While the products are all of the above I am also referring to the Company as well. In order to have a good product you must be willing to listen to the customer who uses that product. I use Everest Products for all of these reasons.
I was honored to be invited to visit Everest factory in Ayer’s Cliff, Canada in the fall of 2019. Not to just tour the factory but to sit with the entire Sales Department, Vice President and their Engineering team. It’s not every day someone is asked to sit down with the head people of any company to discuss how they can make their products better for the end user. It was a very informational meeting for all involved, with many new suggestions and ideas that would be beneficial to both the end user and the company.
These bodies are much more versatile than the hopper/dump body system we had in the past. We can use these trucks for other operations during the winter season with minimal effort and changeover.
Everest sat with our team and designed a body to meet our needs. They listened to our input and produced the product we wanted. They have been open to tweaks and changes along the way.
