SANY America Names Alaskan Dealer

June 11, 2013

SANY America has named Totem Equipment & Supply as the company’s first excavator dealer in Alaska. Totem will represent SANY in the Anchorage market.

“There is a lot of opportunity in Alaska and we’re excited to partner with a company that has found the key to success for over 50 years,” said Eric Teague, vice president of earthmoving at SANY America. “Totem is another family-owned success story with a dedicated heritage of trust, dependability and customer service. We look forward to a great partnership.”

Totem Equipment & Supply was founded in 1961 by Cliff Huston and his wife and business partner Allie Huston. Today under the ownership of Mike Huston the family business continues to thrive as Alaska’s leading equipment distributor and full-service rental company. Totem meets customer needs with a variety of products, including pressure washer trailers, dump trailers, light tower trailers and more. The company also includes a full fabrication facility.

“We heard a lot of good things about SANY and when I visited their operations in Georgia I knew it was a good fit for us,” said owner Mike Huston. “They listen as a company and their product is solid. We like that they use name-brand components and that the product will lend itself well to the cold, rough conditions we often face here in Alaska. We’re glad to get in on the ground-floor as one of the initial dealers for SANY.”
