Morbark expands Boxer distribution
By Sarah Ann McCay18 August 2013
US-based Morbark Inc has confirmed more than 20 distributors for mini tool carrier product line Boxer Equipment, which the firm acquired at the end of 2012 from Mertz Manufacturing.
Morbark is working to establish a worldwide distributor network for the compact utility loaders with a new dealer agreement recently signed with Queensland Mini Diggers, in Sumner Park, Queensland, Australia.
Other notable new distributor agreements include Heritage Tractor, Inc., with 10 locations in Kansas and Missouri; Meade Tractor, with seven locations in Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia; Nortrax Northeast, with 10 locations in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and New York; Nortrax Southeast, with nine locations in Florida; and Van Wall Equipment, with 12 locations throughout Iowa, Illinois, Kansas and Nebraska.
“We’re excited by the amount of interest we’ve had from companies wanting to represent the Boxer Equipment line,” said Mark Rau, Morbark dealer development manager.
“Our Boxer distributor network is expanding quickly with companies that will give our customers the high-quality service they expect from Morbark.
In addition, some existing Mobark tree care equipment dealers have decided to take on the Boxer range. These are: Abele Tractor & Equipment Company, Inc.; Alexander Equipment Company; Cobb County Tractor Company; Essco Distributors, Inc.; Grinding & Drilling, Inc.; Newtown Power Equipment, Inc.; Nortrax Northeast; Nortrax Southeast; White Oak Equipment, Inc.; and Wilder Motor & Equipment Co.
Alexander Equipment Company, Nortrax Northeast and Nortrax Southeast also carry Morbark’s industrial equipment.
