Walker Manufacturing has announced the transition of the Ohio, Michigan and Eastern Indiana territory distribution responsibilities from Emmett Equipment Company to Precision Work, Inc. in Port Washington, New York. Effective July 1, 2021, Precision Work, Inc. (PWI) will take on the ongoing territory, dealer and brand development for these territories.
A family-owned, small town, independent power equipment distributor founded in 1965, PWI has been distributing Walker Mowers since 1982. The company currently distributes Walker to nine northeastern states from Maine to Pennsylvania.
“Since 2002, we have enjoyed working with the dedicated team at Emmett Equipment Company, and we are thankful for the progress they have made,” says Bob Walker, chairman of Walker Manufacturing. “Company founder Tom Emmett was a key part of the development of the Walker market in these states up until his passing in 2016. The team he had put in place continued on working well and has recently chosen to focus on the retail side of their business.”
“Our company has been built on strong relationships with dealers who we like to treat like family, so the opportunity to expand into the Midwest is exciting for our team,” says PWI president Jeff Plotka. “We look forward to bringing the same programs, service and attention to detail to these new dealers that have helped build the reputation in the power equipment industry that we enjoy today.”
Bob Clancy, Walker sales manager, says that Walker Manufacturing, Emmett and PWI have been coordinating closely with one another over the last several months to make this transition as seamless as possible. “We’re confident dealers will be well supported by PWI with the programs and Walker product to continue to make their Walker dealerships successful,” he states.
