Mike Ferguson

Prior to Acme Ferguson spent 20 years in the equipment rental business, starting in 1992 at Prime Equipment in Garland, Texas. He moved to Horizon High Reach in Irving, Texas, three years later, as an outside sales representative.

He joined Mango Equipment in Irving in 1998 as an outside sales representative, covering Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arkansas and Louisiana. When Mango was acquired by United Rentals a year later, Ferguson remained on-board for the next 12 years moving up to the role of manager of new business development covering the Gulf Coast and the Midwest.

Acme Lift chief executive Woody Weld said: “Mike has a tremendous amount of industry experience that he brings to his new position. Since joining Acme Lift, Mike has made significant contributions to our company in the Gulf Coast region. Because of his fleet management, planning and marketing abilities, we now hope to utilise his capabilities to grow the Acme Lift sales and marketing team.”

“Mike will also help direct fleet concentrations, new products, and improvement of customer contacts. He has the ability to initiate new business and negotiate existing contracts with Acme Lift’s customers, both large and small. “

“I take pride in building Acme Lift’s exemplary relationships with all our customers based on honesty, integrity and respect,” Ferguson added. “That has always been at the forefront.”

“I look forward to having the time to develop more strategic partnerships within the retail rental industry, as well as exploring opportunities outside the United States and looking into other product lines for Acme Lift.”
