Owner of East Coast Partners Grp. (ECPG)

Lloyd started working with air hitch products in June 2003 as a consultant for Advanced Air Hitch in August, GA. In 2004 Lloyd became part owner of Advanced Air Hitch. In 2005 Air Hitch Technology purchased the product line from Advanced Air Hitch and trade named it “AirSafe™”. As part of this sale, Lloyd started High End Markets (HEM) to be the exclusive sales and distributor to sell air hitch products for Air Hitch Technology. 

After the first year, Air Hitch Technology started selling to other distributors. As a distributor, Lloyd performed all the tasks from Sales, Customer contact, Shipping, and customer service. In 2012 Lloyd closed HEM distribution company and started East Coast Partners Grp (ECPG), which became a Sales Representative company for Air Hitch Technology. 

As a sales representative, Lloyd worked with customers to help them select the correct hitch for their needs. He is also responsible for all customer service issues for all of HEM and ECPG sales. Starting with the new company ECPG activity Air Hitch Technology handles all the Credit Card Processing and Shipping.

Lloyd has 20 years of experience with air hitches. Lloyd has more experience with the air hitch business, and he can work with customers to get them the hitch they need. Over the past 20 years, Lloyd has sold over $9M in sales and accounts for over 75% of the sales for Air Hitch Technology. 

Lloyd also researches hitch options and accessories that you may be interested in to complement to the air hitch. The truck and trailer business keeps changing, and we need to keep up with how those changes affect our hitch business.

Lloyd offered customer support before and after the sale. If you still have the hitch you bought from us, you will always get customer support.

As of Feb 9, 2024 Air Hitch Technology decided to end the relationship with Lloyd (ECPG). ECPG will now move into a new phase and start marketing other products related to the hitch business. Stay tuned for updates on the new products and services being offered.
