PullRite Towing Systems, a subsidiary of Mishawaka, Ind.-based Pulliam Enterprises Inc., has developed a prototype fifth-wheel install kit that will work with the 2013 Dodge 2500 light-duty truck series.
According to a press release, there were “significant changes made by Dodge that prevent fifth-wheel install kits that fit previous model year Dodge trucks from being installed.” PullRite reported it had completed fit and testing for its prototype, Part No. 2740.
“To our knowledge, this is the only fifth-wheel install kit available for these trucks that does not require significant fabrication to either the frame bracket or the truck frame,” said Scott Later, national sales manager. “Because of this we anticipate significant demand on this item.”
The kit will allow for installation of any brand fifth-wheel hitch that uses industry standard bed rails. This includes the following PullRite hitches: No. 1900, 16,000 Super 5th; No. 2100, 18,000 Super 5th; No. 2700, 15,000 SuperGlide; and No. 2900, 18,000 SuperGlide.
Effective immediately, PullRite has made a limited number of these kits available for “Special Order Drop Ships” only. These kits will be available only through the company’s distributor partners for customers that have an immediate need. Standard “Special Order Drop Ship” terms will be in place and freight charges will apply.
Due to a sizable increase in business, Mishawaka, Ind.-based PullRite Towing Systems has recently expanded its sales department.
According to a press release, Julius Webster has recently been promoted to the position of sales representative. Webster joined PullRite in October of 2012 as a customer service representative. He received his bachelor’s in business management from Brown Mackie in South Bend and is currently working toward his MBA at Ashford University. In his new role, Webster will work closely with Pullrite’s network of dealers and installers.
The addition of Webster brings the total number of direct sales representatives at PullRite to six. PullRite also employs the representative agency, Tom Manning and Associates, and their five representatives.
In addition, Krystal Malone has joined PullRite as a customer service representative filling the vacancy created by Webster’s promotion. Malone attended Kalamazoo Valley Community College and has over 10 years of customer service, accounting and logistics experience.
Scott Later, national sales manager, said that with the expansion of the sales department PullRite is well positioned to provide its growing dealer network with the increased training and communication needed as their business continues to grow.
