To serve customers at the local level, Sabanto’s elite network of dealer partners will help ensure customers experience the very best sales and service possible. The companies who have been chosen to join the network have all been working in the ag technology solution space for decades, ensuring customers experience world-class responsiveness, support and collaboration.
“This is one of the most exciting times for Agriculture in our lifetime,” says Matt Hesse, vice president of sales and marketing, Sabanto. “As one of the first to bring commercial autonomy to agriculture, we know we need a strong dealer network to sell, service and support customers. This inaugural group of elite dealer partners are joining our mission to bring this game-changing technology to the agriculture industry and more. This group of eight innovative, independent businesses have excelled in providing technology for 15-20+ years. Autonomy innovation, along with smart implements, will forever change production agriculture as we know it today, and that is what our dealer partners are very excited to bring to their customers!”
