Dealers are being recruited by JLG Industries as part of the company’s venture into the North American market for agricultural telescopic handlers as production is moved from Europe to the United States.
The launch of a new R-Series range of compact and full-size telescopic handlers marks the beginning of Doosan Bobcat’s campaign to double its sales of these machines into worldwide agricultural and construction markets over the next 5 years.
Applied Machinery Sales (AMS), the importer and distributor of Merlo telehandlers and Rotos in the U.S., has opened a second location in Olathe, Kan. This location will offer the full line of Merlo Telehandlers and Rotos.
The figures indicate a 6% decrease for tractors, an 18% decrease for tractors with loading platforms, a slight gain of 0.3% for trailers, little change for telehandlers and a 1.5% decrease for combines.
The acquisition means JCB will assume responsibility for dealership operations, including the sales and support of JCB construction equipment, to customers in the greater Los Angeles area and neighboring counties.
Claas will turn to the $9.9 billion earthmoving, mining and construction machinery giant Liebherr for its next generation of agricultural telescopic handlers following mutual agreement to end an existing OEM partnership.
