Dealership expands staff to better serve the growing demand for commercial vans.

We want our commercial customers to understand what a big part they are of our success

Today, Mercedes-Benz of Augusta announced that they have opened a separate Commercial Sales department to handle sales and leasing of their Metris and Sprinter van lines and have named Alan Mosher Commercial Sales Manager to manage the department.

Mercedes-Benz of Augusta General Manager Nate Cartwright said, “Today’s commercial customers require a different sales process and our Sprinter and Metris vans require different product knowledge so we felt a separate department was the best way to provide Mercedes-class service to our commercial customers.”

“Since Gottlieb Daimler and Karl Benz invented the truck and the van, respectively in 1896”, he continued, “Commercial vehicles have been a big part of the Daimler Benz story. We want our commercial customers to understand what a big part they are of our success.”

“We were fortunate,” Cartwright added, “To get Al Mosher to lead this effort. Al brings over 30 years' experience in the car business along with a reputation for sales excellence and dedication to customer satisfaction to our dealership. I’m confident that Al is exactly the right person to take care of our existing commercial customers and grow our business with new ones.”

While Mosher will be based out of the Mercedes-Benz dealership on Washington Rd., he’ll spend a lot of his time on the road. “Our potential customers are busy running their businesses and working at job sites.” Mosher said, “I want to cut their downtime by coming to them and bringing them vehicles to look at. They’ll deal directly with me for 90% of the process. Hopefully, the only time they’ll need to come to the dealership is to sign the final paperwork and take delivery.”

Daimler AG, the parent company of Mercedes- Benz, is the largest commercial truck manufacturer in the world. Their Sprinter van, available in both cargo and passenger models, was launched in the US in 2010 and was the first ‘Euro-style’ van in the market. The Sprinter is one of the most versatile vans in the marketplace with 21 different configurations available in the cargo van and 10 in the passenger. The Metris, the only mid-sized van available in the US and also available in both cargo and passenger configurations, was introduced in 2015. Depending on your size needs, both are excellent choices for moving cargo, supplies or people.

Business owners are encouraged to call the dealership to make an appointment to meet with Mosher, watch for him at our local home improvement, lumber and paint stores or wait for him to stop by and visit you.
