Effective Dec. 31, 2011, Wacker Neuson ended its long-standing agreement with Gehl Corporation, West Bend, Wisc.
Wacker Neuson has been the exclusive manufacturer of Gehl and Mustang branded compact excavators and all-wheel steer loaders since 1999.
“The termination of the Gehl contract is consistent with our strategy in North America to focus resources and products on the further development of the Wacker Neuson brand for its unique and extensive combined product offering of Compact Equipment as well as Light Equipment,” said Christopher Barnard, president and CEO of Wacker Neuson Corporation.
Barnard added, “This increased focus on this broad product range will enhance our ability to better support Wacker Neuson’s extensive North American distribution system.”
Since 2008, Wacker Neuson’s compact excavators, articulated wheel loaders, all-wheel steer wheel loaders and dumpers have been offered through a network of Wacker Neuson independent dealers.
