Dealers – Average Tenure, Mechanics (USA-MW)

Last Updated: June 1, 2022

About This Ranking

In this ranking, the focus is on the service capability of dealers, and specifically the average tenure of the mechanics, or technicians, on their service teams.

This ranking is specifically focused on the midwest region of the United States. The Heavy borrows the US Census definition of the midwest, which includes the following states:

  • Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, Wisconsin

Note: only employees in-region are included. Only dealers with 10+ employees in-region are included.

Why is this ranking important?

For end users of equipment, machine service is most often their top concern – a leading indicator of a dealer partner’s ability to deliver on the promise of uptime. For manufacturers and dealers, it’s critical benchmark intelligence, helping justify investments and strategic decisions.
