In addition to direct contact through Goldhofer Inc.’s US sales team, three dealerships are now in place for the company’s multi-state highway transportation equipment. That includes the versatile, flexible semi-trailers in the STZ-V series, and the P9 and P12 PLUS highway models. Goldhofer’s new dealers include ILoca Services, Inc., Aurora/Illinois, Lucky’s Trailer Sales, Inc., South Royalton/Vermont, and Pinnacle Trailer Sales, Inc., Wilmington/North Carolina.
“We are delighted to have gained three stocking dealers with a proven track record. ILoca Services, Lucky’s Trailer Sales and Pinnacle Trailer Sales are expanding their portfolios to include our highway trailers so that flexible and economical transportation solutions will now be available to their customers at even shorter notice,” says Jerry Rothwell, Sales Manager at Goldhofer Inc..
For example the STZ-V series is designed primarily for fast loading and unloading of self-propelled machines, which can be driven onto the drop deck after removal of the hydraulic gooseneck. The drop deck also makes the trailer ideal for transporting high and heavy unit loads over long distances. Plus a flip axle is available for extra versatility and the flexibility to handle jobs on routes that cross state lines. Goldhofer’s P9 and P12 PLUS semi-trailers have been developed exclusively for the North American market. The P9 comes with 3 tridem axle groups with pendular axle technology and offers maneuverability despite its loading deck of up to 90.3 feet. Narrow roads with sharp curves can be handled just as easily as bumps, railroad crossings and potholes. The spacing between the axle groups can also be adjusted to ensure compliance with regulations as state lines are crossed.
Stefan Kohler, Director of Sales North America, says: “The STZ-VL, P9 and P12 Plus vehicles available from our new dealers meet the requirements of the North American transportation market and facilitate multi-state transportation operations. With the new P12 PLUS, Goldhofer offers a game-changing vehicle combination for the North American market that can be individually configured for a wide range of transportation jobs,” says Jeff Bennett, Sales Manager at Goldhofer Inc. and he adds: “In a few simple steps using just a few accessories, the basic 12-axle version can be configured for various combinations – semi lowloader, drawbar combination, steerable dolly – e.g. for transporting extremely long concrete beams.”
