Kverneland Group has decided to enter into a sales and distribution alliance with Cummings & Bricker of Batavia, N.Y., and Carlisle, Pa., and ACI Distributors of St. Charles, Mo. for the sales of its Kverneland and Kverneland Taarup-branded products.

Ellis Equipment of Logan, Utah will pick up responsibility and support for the products in Washington and Oregon.

Kverneland Group North America will continue to serve its Canadian dealer network from the office in Drummondville, Quebec.

Future business of Kverneland and Kverneland Taarup branded products will be handled by these two distributors while Kverneland Groups own branch Kverneland Group USA, based in Syracuse, N.Y., will focus on purely marketing activities for the U.S. market.

“We are very excited about this new organization and the potential that it has for our customers and our dealers as we continue to develop new products and continue the support of our existing products in a more cost efficient and productive manner,” says David Palmer, market director.

Kverneland Group is a leading international company developing, producing and distributing agricultural machinery and services. The news release said that a strong focus on innovation allows the firm to provide an attractive, unique and broad product range with high quality.

Kverneland Group offers an extensive package of effective and efficient systems and solutions to the professional farming community, under the brands Vicon and Kverneland. The offering covers soil preparation, seeding, forage equipment, spreading and spraying.
