Walker Manufacturing welcomed Outdoor Equipment Distributors (OED) of Raleigh, N.C., to its distribution team for the Mid-Atlantic states. OED has purchased the Walker distribution territory from GHS Corporation of Denton, N.C., which has distributed Walker Mowers since 1985 as pioneering members of the Walker distribution program.
“During this time of transition, we look back and are very thankful for the 34 years we worked with the GHS corporation and the Hopkins family,” reflects Walker President Bob Walker, “And we look forward with anticipation and confidence as the Zucker family and the team at Outdoor Equipment Distributors take on the Walker program.”
OED now takes responsibility to support Walker dealers in marketing, selling and servicing Walker product in North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Delaware, and Maryland.
“We are absolutely delighted to join the Walker family and have been very impressed with the on boarding process and the way they have welcomed us to the team,” explained OED President Rob Zucker, “Walker Mowers fit beautifully into the offerings we provide to our dealer network and we look forward to a long and prosperous future for all parties as we work together to grow the Walker Mower line.”
Outdoor Equipment Distributors is a third generation wholesale distributor founded in Raleigh, North Carolina in 1931 that has transitioned throughout their history from auto parts wholesale to outdoor power equipment.
