“From Doosan Elite-Plus, a comprehensive product support program, to a 48 Hour Parts Guarantee Program, to our All Makes Parts Program, our number one goal is providing end-to-end products and services for our customers,” said Michael Stanley, President, Doosan Infracore America Construction Equipment . “This unique new line of breakers designed specifically for Doosan customers based on their input is a sign of our commitment to creating one place where customers can go to have all of their equipment needs met. We listened to what they wanted and made it happen.”

Customers will have the opportunity to tackle new types of jobs (such as demolition) that they might not have considered before, while the dealers can service customers in the demolition sector with a comprehensive suite of products and support services.
