MirTech Harvest Center, the dealership group representing Claas in the Western Delta region of the U.S., has opened a new store in Boyle, Miss., its fourth location since signing on to represent Claas in the region in 2016. 

MirTech’s CEO, Stacy Anthony, says that Claas had doubled its sales in the region from the previous year. “We’ve also added about 30% more employees as an added investment into our stores and communities.”

Anthony had worked for John Deere dealerships for 27 years, including 12 for the Brandt dealership group as its international sales manager, according to his LinkedIn profile.

MirTech, founded by Colorado native Robert Krattli, is a large dealer group with a multi-location operation in Eastern Europe and has a long-standing history with Claas. Its relationship with Claas in the U.S. began in 2016 when it signed a letter of intent to become their new distribution partner for the Western Delta region, a territory previously covered by Holt Cat after it decided to move out of the region.

It established its Boyle, Miss., operations last year when it acquired Thompson Agriculture. This location gave Claas the opportunity to expand its presence into Mississippi and Tennessee, as well as its first operation east of the Mississippi River. MirTech also has stores in Jonesboro and Stuttgart, Ark., Sikeston, Mo.

In addition to the Claas equipment line, MirTech also represents Deutz, Gehl, Hardi, Bourgault, Kinze, Mustang, MacDon, Salford, Parker and Great Plains.
