Work with the Industry's Best Distribution System
The Hunter Franchised Distributor for your territory also contributes to your success.

Many distributors provide facilities for product demonstrations and technical seminars.
Support from the Industry's Best Service Force
Hunter service is a strong selling point to use with your prospects. Your sales efforts are matched by the efforts of a Hunter Service Representative in your territory.

State-of-the-Art Technology Brings Continuing Opportunity
Hunter Engineering Company was founded in 1946 by Lee Hunter, who had already earned a reputation as an inventor in the automotive service field. Hunter pioneered four-wheel alignment in the '70s, and in 1980 introduced the industry's first alignment system using a CRT method of display. The company has grown dramatically in the past decade, applying state-of-the-art technology in an expanding product line. Lee Hunter formed Hunter Engineering Company around one of his inventions, an on-the-car wheel balancer he called the "Tune-in." He recently was inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame, joining such outstanding industry leaders as Thomas Edison, Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone.
