ANCHORAGE, AK — Takeuchi-US, a compact equipment manufacturer, announces Patrick Kirychuk as Regional Business Manager for Canada and Alaska, effective immediately. Kirychuk’s main responsibilities include supporting dealers and customers across Canada and Alaska.

Kirychuk has almost two decades of experience in heavy equipment sales and management in various roles. Most recently, he was employed with SMS Equipment in Alberta, Canada, as a Sales Representative before his promotion to Product Manager. In his time as a Sales Representative for SMS Equipment, he successfully grew the market in the Calgary region, developing new customers for a specific product line and worked extensively with Takeuchi products.

“We are very excited to welcome Patrick to our team,” said Henry Lawson, Director of Sales for North America. “He has a great deal of experience, not only working in the industry but is also well acquainted and knowledgeable with the Takeuchi product line. With his positive attitude and experience, he is going to be an excellent addition to our team.”

Takeuchi is an ISO 9001 certified manufacturer of a line of compact track loaders, compact excavators, compact wheel loaders, and skid steer loaders. Founded in 1963, Takeuchi was the first company to introduce the compact excavator to North America, setting the stage for one of the highest growth product segments ever introduced in the compact equipment market.
