In the wake of Kramer, Ltd. announcing its intent to exit the agricultural equipment business, CLAAS of America has made immediate plans to fill the gap left by its long-time dealer with two new, full-service dealerships in Saskatchewan. The move, part of a planned dealership expansion in Western Canada, will ensure that CLAAS customers in the region will experience little or no disruption of service or support, the company says in a press release.
Tingley’s Harvest Center, set to open a new retail location in North Battleford, will carry all CLAAS equipment lines, including LEXION combines, JAGUAR forage harvesters, the XERION tractor, and CLAAS balers and hay tools.
The second dealership to be announced will be CLAAS-owned and operated. The new harvest centre, scheduled to be open for the upcoming harvest, is being established in the Regina area and will offer the full line of CLAAS products, service and parts support.CLAAS currently operates its newly opened Parts and Logistics Centre and Regional Training Academy in Regina.
The company plans to make even more dealership announcements to the region in the very near future.
