Cover story Dave Baiocchi

Factory Stores coming to the U.S.? This is the month we’ve all been waiting for! Back in January, all of the economic signs pointed to a stellar year, with record-setting revenue and profitability growth charted and waiting. Then the train jumped the track. I haven’t spoken to a single dealer who has set any records this year. From the pandemic to murder hornets, to social unrest, to a contentious election process, the effect on our businesses has been substantial. Who knew? If you entered 2020 undercapitalized or overstaffed, you were forced to make some serious decisions. There is no “leading indicator” for a pandemic. It only took a couple of weeks to demonstrate how quickly it could spread, and how deadly it could be. Layoffs and furloughs had to be initiated quickly. We had to develop a “work from home” protocol for essential employees. We had to issue new requirements for PPE and physical distancing. Although our industry didn’t experience any government-mandated shut-downs, the conditions were still brutal, and the viruses’ effects will be felt for some time to come. In times like these, we normally see a shift in dealer networks. For the last decade, we have operated in a fast-evolving industry. Finding synergies, and “economies of scale” have been the only way to increase profitability, both for the dealer and the OEM. Mergers and acquisitions have happened at a furious pace, on both sides of the equation. A low-interest-rate environment has only hastened the transformation. Expansion strategies work well in a growing marketplace. Not so much, when a microscopic virus grinds the economy to a halt in a matter of weeks. Dealers that can’t financially endure the headwinds will look for an exit ramp. Mergers and acquisitions (and even shut-downs) are initiated not out of choice, but out of necessity. In a financial landscape such as this, finding a well-funded and motivated buyer for a dealership is difficult indeed. Private equity and dealer to dealer acquisition possibilities dry up quickly, as any investment capital is quickly siphoned off for operational needs. A tenuous short-term future also makes an ESOP less likely. The results of all this disruption are not lost on the OEM. In an expanding market, the OEM normally focuses on developing dealers and expanding the dealer’s tools and capabilities in representing 4

their equipment. When the winds shift, and the market shrinks, the focus of the OEM changes from development to preservation. The OEM’s connection to the marketplace is predicated in great part on the population base of their equipment in the field. If a dealership is sold or fails, the OEM is at risk of losing their connection with that installed base. To preserve the base, the OEM may be motivated to either open a factory store, establish a financial partnership with the dealer, or purchase the dealership outright. We see this happening more and more as our industry evolves into fewer dealers covering larger and larger market areas. Some OEM’s are very active and successful in entering the retail marketplace. Others have struggled to both understand, and operate a dealership in a profitable way. Much of this has to do with how motivated and prepared the OEM was to enter the retail market in the first place. Organizational fundamentals, management oversight, budgeting, service investment, and customer satisfaction are all areas where the OEM expectations may not dovetail with dealership best practices. When OEM’s enter the marketplace by CHOICE, they stand a better chance of success. Many acquisitions however originated out of a salvage operation. All of the most prolific OEM’s have participated in dealer acquisition either in whole or as a minority partner: The following list of manufacturer/dealer acquisitions comes from an article from Intella Liftparts: July 2015: The History of Factory Stores in the Forklift Industry and manufacturer sites. Toyota – Seven dealerships were acquired since 2007, mostly in the north, northeast, and southeast regions of the country. Most notably in July of 2020, they expanded their Atlas Companies (Chicago) holdings and acquired the Toyota-lift of Minnesota dealership in Brooklyn Park, MN. MCFA/Unicarriers/Mitsubishi Logisnext Six dealerships have been acquired since 2006. Locations include California, Texas, Mississippi, and Louisiana. In 2019, they purchased Equipment Depot, who subsequently then acquired (previously owned Unicarriers) dealers in Boston and Milwaukee in 2020. Komatsu – When taking over the Kalmar AC forklift unit in 1988, Komatsu inherited existing factory

Cover Story continued store locations in California, Chicago, and Atlanta. They continue to operate these stores presently but have not recently expanded their retail efforts. Doosan - Five branch locations are currently owned as of 2018 in Georgia and California. Hyster /Yale – Although there were factoryowned retail branches as late as 2003, Hyster/Yale has not chosen to engage the retail marketplace in any meaningful way. Hyster/Yale has a complete product offering, exclusive dealer contracts, and a strong base of larger, multi-branch dealerships that make up its dealer base. Raymond (Toyota) – 16 dealerships have been acquired. Raymond only has 28 dealers nationwide. Crown – By far the biggest participant in the retail market, with nearly 30 factory owned locations opened since 1990. Only a handful of these however were dealer acquisitions. Long ago, Crown adopted a practice of opening a new factory owned location in places where a dealer changed hands, failed, or didn’t reach sales targets. To be sure, there are still privately owned, multi-line Crown dealers who are very successful with the product line. The future distribution plan however will no doubt, include many more “ground-up” factory store locations. THE DEALERS’ SOURCE FOR PORTABLE RACKS™

It’s evident that Both Raymond and Crown have entered, and continue to build their retail market presence by choice. Much of this is due to the nature of their core competency. A large focus on ITA Class 2 and 3 products, naturally draws them toward enduser projects that include integrated solutions. The complexity of these projects and the engineering required to successfully complete them requires far greater OEM involvement. Partnerships between integrated systems OEM’s and the forklift OEM also create profitable opportunities. Having direct control over all of these processes (engineering, integration, sales, and installation) is requisite to formulating comprehensive solutions for these customers, hence the migration toward factory-controlled sales channels. Like it or not, our industry is changing. Customers are demanding more from us than simply sales and service. They want solutions. They want data. They want their investments to generate a provable return. If you don’t have the right offerings, the customer will vote with their purchase order. Lose too many, and the OEM may very well want to protect their market share with a new factory store, or through an acquisition.... although most likely not at the price you expected. As an independent dealer, your best strategy is to grow and maintain a high-value customer offering, while also developing a robust succession plan. Position your practices (and your balance sheet) for extended verifiable profitability, and continue to cultivate personal relationships with your OEM in good times and in bad. It has always been my position that independent dealers are a necessary component of the material handling industry. Their focus, investment, customer service practices, and long-standing customer relationships pair well with the OEM’s efforts to build and support quality machinery. The priorities and motivations of both parties are well suited when they work together. Dave Baiocchi is the president of Resonant Dealer Services LLC.

Bottom Line Garry Bartecki

Standing still is not an option Here we are nine months into COVID-19 with its associated shutdowns and restrictions with no long-term solution in sight. For some of you, the situation has brought on adequate revenues or even enhanced revenues because of customers associated with companies that distribute essential products and services. For others, it is a major bump in the road that cannot be reversed until revenues return to 2019 levels, but from what I read that probably will not happen until the start of 2022. And for too many this pandemic most likely will wipe you out unless you find alternative revenue and profit sources VERY SOON. One thing I know for sure is that things will never be the same, which translates into your business will never be the same, requiring heavy action with your crystal ball to find a fix. Can you possibly imagine what will be discussed in public and private board rooms between now and the end of 2020? Since I am a board member myself, I wonder what changes will be put forth. How to pay for them. What to expect from them and how long to go with the plan before we throw in the towel and move to Plan 2. What is interesting is I had a Board Meeting planned for October 22, 2020. The agenda was set, documents transmitted, and all Board Members notified of the meeting date. But one member suggested we wait to have the meeting until after the election because “I don’t have a clue what to suggest from a planning standpoint until I learn who won the election. “And guess what? All agreed with him because he hit the nail on the head. We would have just wasted our time with discussion covering both sides of the outcome. Keeping in mind all the changes taking place, with few standard business practices able to provide relief Board Members have to throw out historical data and methods to find new revenue sources from both existing and new customers that may never have been Original & Aftermarket Parts for Most Equip. thinkable FORKLIFTS & TIRES in the last four or 713.460.8197 • 800.687.3884 five years. fax: 713.460.5941 www.forkliftsandtires.com And even 8

those of you finding yourself in the enviable position of making above average profits due to your customer mix, cannot ignore the fact that one of those players in the ALMOST WIPED OUT position will be forced to find new disruptive solutions that could be better than your current offerings to the point where your customer base is leaving for something new, something more efficient and something more profitable. Let us also keep in mind that if historical data is now useless, preparing budgets using historical data will lead to potentially big mistakes. You almost must start from TODAY to get a clear picture of cash flow. The November 2020 issue of Forbes covers how many companies are dealing with the pandemic. There are various articles that cover how companies and leaders found ways to excel at these most challenging times. 25 examples are presented where disasters are transformed into opportunities of a lifetime. From flower delivery to high-end hotel services to banquet furniture to training services to modular building blocks. All were transformed into new revenue streams and related profits from selling products and services new to the company after the Covid hit. Other publications offer up similar examples. Try to read them and see if they can help create a new business model or revenue silo for your company. Entrepreneurs Entrepreneurs drive the economic engine of this country. And once an entrepreneur always an entrepreneur. Start one business and if it tanks, build another, and so on. The core of our economy is driven by these types of people. Starting and running a business is in their blood. You are one of those people. But maybe you never had to practice this gift you have. But if it is true that how our economy works going forward is going to drastically change without any hope of returning to previous modes of operation is suggest maybe it is time for you to stir up your business juices to protect your involvement in the material handling business. In other words, you now employ several people, have multiple locations to service customers, probably represent various product lines, and borrow along with industry standards. Now lock the door and ask yourself “What would I do with all this if sales decreased 50%, and

Bottom Line continued my customers start leaving for a lower cost, efficient option? What would I do with these assets to stay afloat?” Many of the entrepreneurs in the Forbes article found ways to make it work, to use their experience, obtain financing, and forming partnerships to make life easier. What did you come up with? The “partner” part of this equation is also especially important. There are people out there and companies out there that can help you turn assets and supply services using the assets and knowledge you have. I know if you spend 10 minutes thinking about this partner angle you will find a “partner” you can work with to cross-sell products and services. In the end, remember that the only person you can count on 100% of the time is yourself. And it is 100% up to you which way it goes. Garry Bartecki is a CPA MBA with GB Financial Services LLC.

Sales Fitness Exercises. Are you doing enough of them? If you would do it later why wouldn’t you do it now? I met a guy on the plane who was an area director for a major shoe store chain. “Suppose I went into your store and the shoe I wanted was out of stock in my size what would happen,” I queried. “Well, that shoe store has the capability of finding those shoes in our other stores and then asks (tells) the customer to go to the other store to pick them up.” “Can’t you just ship them to my home?” I wondered. “No,” he said matter of factly. “We’re not set up to do it that way.” I turned the tables and asked the guy which he would rather have? “Delivered,” he said without a second of hesitation. “I’d rather have them delivered.” “What about your customer you think they’d want them delivered, too?” I challenged. “Yes, I suppose they would,” he said with that ‘what’s this guy going to say next’ look. “Who’s your biggest competitor?” I asked. “Walmart,” he said. “Suppose Walmart came out with a new service that would locate out of stock shoes for shoppers at other Walmart’s and deliver them to the customers home the same day they were ordered no hassle complete return privileges at any Walmart store think you might have to offer the same thing to be competitive?” “You bet we would!” was his knee jerk reply.

Why not have them be perceived as the follower? Why not be the leader in service? Why not set the standard and let others try to catch you? I’m stumped. There isn’t one company or person reading this column right now that doesn’t have an opportunity to outmaneuver and out serve the competitor you hate the most yet sit there and wait for something to happen. Wait for your arch rival to take the lead. Why? You only have an opportunity to capture leadership once after that, you play #2. Ask Avis. They’ve been “trying harder” for 25 years. Enterprise Rent-a-car is a different story. They took the bold position to deliver the rental car to the customer. And their competition HATES it. (And their customers love it.) They niched the replacement car market, delivered it to the door of the customer, and are now number one in rental cars. Call Hertz and ask them who’s Number One. Enterprise never wanted to be number two and using a proactive approach, beat Hertz at their own game, just by delivering the car and mastering one segment of the market and beat them so bad, that now Enterprise is entering the Airport market and Avis is still “trying” to do it the same old way. Pity. Most of these changes (innovations) are obvious. You see something new and say to yourself, “why didn’t I think of that?” Three big reasons we fail to see the obvious: 1. Too caught up in the day today “got to make more sales” trap of mediocrity. Failure to see the big picture. 2. Too caught up on making money instead of becoming “best” at what you do. The greed factor blocking the leadership and creativity factors. 3. Too wasteful of your personal time (news, dumb TV, ball games, bars) to focus and plan for true success. Upside down success priorities. PROACTIVE OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS: What new service or product offering could you make that would establish you as a leader in the field?

Toyota marks 30th anniversary of manufacturing in the U.S.

The Power Transmission Distributors Association (PTDA) has named Bill Childers the 29th recipient of its Warren Pike Award for lifetime achievement in the power transmission/motion control (PT/MC) industry. Bill received the award, named for PTDA’s co-founder and first president, during the PTDA Virtual Industry Summit. The award was established in 1984 to honor individuals who have demonstrated outstanding, continuous, long-term support of PTDA and the PT/ MC industry and is only presented when an individual’s achievements merit this prestigious recognition. Warren Pike Award recipients are selected by the PTDA Board of Directors. www.ptda.org

Toyota Material Handling (TMH) is commemorating its 30th anniversary of manufacturing the brand’s industryleading equipment in the United States this year. Toyota Forklifts began its domestic manufacturing operations at its Columbus-based plant in 1990. Since then, more than 700,000 forklifts have been produced using the legendary Toyota Production System (TPS) and waste-eliminating principles of Toyota Lean Management (TLM) at the 1.5 million-square-foot, award-winning facility. Today, more than 1,500 Toyota associates contribute to the brand’s marketplace superiority, which has endured despite the challenges that have come with the coronavirus pandemic. www.toyotaforklift.com

Caldwell launches overhang lifting beam The Caldwell Group Inc. has launched a custom lifting beam for applications where a crane cannot be positioned over a load due to limited travel or obstructions. The manufacturer’s auto-leveler technology is a standout feature. Caldwell was initially approached by an automotive manufacturer that had a requirement to lift a load during periodic maintenance that couldn’t be reached by its overhead crane. However, subsequent inquiries indicated that there was a wider necessity for the concept, which was reinforced by feedback from a digital Associated Wire Rope Fabricators (AWRF) audience earlier this year. www.caldwellinc.com
