OMAHA, Neb. —  Claas of America is advancing negotiations with its final list of prospective equipment dealers in western Texas and Oklahoma in wake of the recent announcement made by Warren CAT concerning the divestment of their agricultural stores. Warren CAT will continue to provide service and parts support to Claas customers through the dealer transition period.

“We wish Warren CAT the very best as they refocus their efforts in other markets outside of agriculture,” said Eric Raby, Claas of America president and general manager – sales. “With this change comes a great opportunity for Claas. We look forward to expanding our service in these areas to provide customers with enhanced sales and service options.”

At this time, Claas has not announced the dealers with whom they are negotiating, but they do plan to make these announcements in the near future. According to Christopher Gittens, vice president of dealer development, “Our Lexion and Jaguar customers deserve the very best local service and we are working with a select group of the top dealers in the region to ensure they receive it.”

To ensure support of customers throughout this transition, Claas regional sales and service personnel will be available to meet any needs customers may have. In addition to increased Claas regional support, Warren CAT will continue providing service to customers until new dealers have been assigned.
