2014 Ariens and Gravely Dealer Summit – Phoenix, Arizona

10/17/2014 5:00:00 AM

The 2014 Ariens and Gravely Dealer Summit was a huge success with over 250 dealerships in attendance from the United States and Canada.  There were many activities planned including the introduction of the new Gravely Atlas.  The Atlas is not an ordinary UTV, it is a JSV (Job Site Vehicle) designed to help the end-user get their jobs done more efficiently.  The dealers were able to gain performance knowledge through the six demonstration areas set up featuring the benefits of the Atlas.

There were other product updates announced, and the dealers had an opportunity to demo the mowers and equipment for both Gravely and Ariens.  Visit our Facebook page to view the pictures from the event. 

Our guest speaker was Tim Larson, Vice President of Customer Experience of Polaris Industries, Inc.  Tim's message provided insight into their company's dealer initiatives and was very informative as we mark the launch of the Gravely Atlas JSV.

Many Ariens and Gravely dealers were recognized for their achievements for the past year.
