    Maruyama U.S. Inc is pleased to announce a business partnership with elite outdoor power equipment distributor, Roberts Supply, Inc located in Winter Park, Florida. Roberts Supply will distribute the full line of Maruyama products in the states of Florida, Georgia, and Alabama.

    In 1963 Bill Roberts opened a small outdoor power equipment retail store in Winter Park, Florida. Wayne and Bill Roberts Jr. joined their father in the business the next year. By 1971 the Roberts family operated four stores and a central warehouse to hold the overstock equipment and parts. By 1979 Roberts sold the last of the retail stores and began the now very successful wholesale business, Roberts Supply, Inc.

    According to Rick Roberts, Roberts Supply, Inc Executive Vice President and Director of Sales, “The addition of Maruyama is a great fit for Roberts Supply. The quality of their people and the quality and diversity of their professional outdoor power equipment, pumps and sprayers is exactly the kind of business partner we’re looking for. Each of our territory sales managers is excited and pumped-up about representing the Maruyama product line.”

    Says Leif Ringstad, Maruyama US, Inc General Sales Manager, “Maruyama is thrilled to have Roberts Supply, Inc, represent our products. Regarding outdoor power equipment distributors in the Southeast, Roberts Supply, Inc is the undisputed heavy weight champ; their professionalism, sales acumen and dedication for complete customer satisfaction is well known throughout the industry.” Adds Tom Glaze, Maruyama U.S. Vice President and General Manager, “With all their industry experience and legion of dedicated and unstoppable employees, I’m confident the Roberts Supply team will strengthen the Maruyama brand throughout their territory.”

    Maruyama U.S. Inc is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of professional outdoor power equipment, sprayers and agricultural equipment. Maruyama products are specifically designed for commercial applications and demanding conditions. Visit the Web site at www.maruyama-us.com.
