PASCO, Wash. — RDO Equipment Co. is pleased to announce its partnership with Blueline Mfg. Co. in Oregon and Washington. Effective immediately, RDO Equipment Co. stores in these states will begin distributing Blueline’s specialty orchard and vineyard equipment. Locations include Hermiston, Pendleton, and Wasco, OR, and Coulee City, Moses Lake, Othello, Pasco, Ritzville and Sunnyside, Wash.
Since 2015, RDO Equipment Co. locations in Oxnard, Sacramento, Salinas, Santa Maria, Riverside, and Watsonville, CA have offered the complete line of Blueline product categories. The new agreement brings equipment such as ERO Graper Harvesters and Blueline attachments including bin trailers, orchard sprayers, and work platforms, to customers in Oregon and Washington.
“The fruit growing industry is a growing market in the Northwest, and it’s an exciting opportunity to offer another quality product line to our existing and potential new customers,” Ian Carey, Vice President of RDO Equipment Co.’s Northwest Agriculture region, said. Carey added that Blueline products complement the company’s current John Deere tractor offerings to fruit growers.
Blueline equipment for RDO Equipment Co. stores in Oregon and Washington will be specially-branded as Silverline by Blueline.
