KUHN expands dealer network

KUHN has increased its dealer footprint in Australia by adding 10 new dealerships, as part of the Vanderfield group, to its network across NSW and Queensland.The new dealer locations are Beaudesert, Caboolture, Dalby, Goondiwindi and Loganholme in Queensland, and Inverell, Lismore, Moree, Rutherford and Taree in NSW.KUHN Australia's Bruno Fetiveau said KUHN continued to grow, with a strong national dealer network now numbering 115 nationally."We are very excited by the expansion of the KUHN dealer network," Mr Fetiveau said."The last 18 months, in particular, have been extremely pleasing for KUHN."In 2020 we were lucky to deliver the KUHN Expo in Naracoorte in South Australia before the COVID pandemic. In 2021 we invested in a new purpose-built training centre, machinery display centre and workshop at our Melbourne head office and distribution centre."We launched several new exciting and innovative products and are now expanding our network."It shows our commitment to Australian agriculture, and with over 190 years of experience in manufacturing agricultural machinery, it delivers on our commitment to offering the best products to farmers every day."The new dealership locations continue KUHN's already strong relationship with Vanderfield that started 10 years ago, and brings the total number of Vanderfield dealers offering KUHN products to 22.Vanderfield's Paul Slatter said the decision to offer KUHN machinery through the existing Chesterfield Australia dealerships was a logical one."KUHN is a well-known global brand and provides an extensive product range in Australia across hay and forage machinery, sprayers, spreaders, tillage and feed mixers," he said."KUHN also provides local service technicians nationally to support our dealer technicians and has a dedicated parts distribution centre in Australia."Mr Slatter said the expansion of KUHN into these NSW and Queensland dealerships would benefit their customers greatly."The entire KUHN Australia product range will be available to our customers."The products offered by KUHN allow us to provide new products to existing customers while opening a new customer base by giving Vanderfield dealers a complete selection of farm machinery products."He said Vanderfield's role was to ensure their customers have access to high-quality, innovative farm machinery, which is well-supported locally."KUHN are global leaders in the design and manufacture of farm machinery, and we look forward to offering their products through these dealerships."Mr Fetiveau said all Vanderfield sales staff and service technicians in these dealerships would have access to extensive product training."KUHN machines are technologically advanced, so we put a great deal of focus on ensuring our dealers are well trained and equipped to support their customers with machinery sales, service and maintenance," he said.The addition of these dealerships strengthens the relationship between KUHN and Vanderfield. It comes on the back of record sales in 2020 driven mainly by the launch of new products such as the KUHN SB 1290id large square baler, the VB1700 series variable chamber round baler, and the Optimer XL stubble cultivator with 12-metre width.For more information, visit: https://www.kuhn.com.au/dealer-finder
