OMAHA, Neb. — As part of its business strategy to provide support for its North American dealer network and customers, Claas of America has reorganized its Dealer Council to represent the full Claas product line: combines, forage harvesters, balers, hay tools and tractors. The council consists of 10 newly appointed members representing the company’s sales channel.

Previously, Claas operated two North American Dealer Councils — one for combine dealers and another for forage and hay equipment dealers. The new organization provides a stronger network for building industry relationships through the council structure and also delivering a higher level of customer support and service.

The new council consists of ten dealer members: In Canada, the new members are Shane Tingley of Tingley’s Harvest Center and Julie Bosse of Bosse et Frere. In the U.S., the new members are Robb Vanderloop of Vanderloop Equipment, William Hoeft of Ziegler, Randy Grimes of Peterson Machinery, Kyle Taylor of Taylor Implement Co., Scott Humble of Altorfer, Jason Buckman of Whayne Supply, Chris Felosky of Monroe Tractor and Tom Healy of Burnips Equipment Co.
