THE CONCEPT: There's never been a better time to be an independent dealer.

Today's independents are stronger than ever. They're more professional and more disciplined. They're closer to their customers and open to selling them new and innovative products. And they're able to turn on a dime and respond quickly to new growth opportunities and challenges. This new publication from long-time industry veteran Simon De Groot celebrates the successes of today's independents and their trading partners and turns the spotlight on opportunities to make them even stronger and more profitable!
