This distribution agreement with Vermeer, which will be rolled out on a controlled basis throughout 2021, will provide their dealers access to the robust line of mulching equipment that leverages the best of Vermeer and Fecon mulching technology. This distribution strategy leverages the scope and size of traditional Vermeer dealerships by focusing on market segments with differentiated product needs. Blending the learnings and engineering expertise of both teams provides dealerships and customers with products that are easy to buy and own.
"Fecon’s forestry innovation and product lineup is a great complement to our equipment portfolio," said Vermeer President of Industrial Solutions Doug Hundt. "With a lineup of products that support the land clearing, utility right-of-way and fire mitigation markets, their mulching attachments and tractors will give our dealers a broader portfolio to support those customers we are already working with in those markets."
Fecon will start the process with a select, yet global group of Vermeer dealers in 2021, as well as strategically specify products and methodically expand from there. The company will assume production and support of the Vermeer model FT100 and FT300 forestry mulching tractors, and has begun moving these functions to their Lebanon, Ohio factory.
