The Brandt Group of Companies has made a major product-line announcement. Effective Dec. 1, 2019, they have been named the Canada-wide dealer for the full range of aggregate and road construction and maintenance products from the Wirtgen Group.

The Wirtgen Group supplies the road construction machinery sector, incorporating Wirtgen milling, paving and soil stabilization products, Vögele paving equipment, Hamm compaction equipment and Kleemann aggregate crushing and screening equipment.

"This announcement illustrates our strong commitment to Canada's roadbuilding and aggregate industries," said Brandt President and CEO Shaun Semple. "The Wirtgen Group's impressive product lineup is highly-compatible with our existing John Deere offering, so customers will now be able to come directly to Brandt for an unparalleled selection of the machines and product support that they need to succeed."

The Wirtgen line will be delivered nationwide through Brandt Tractor, soon to be Canada's only coast-to-coast-to-coast construction equipment dealer network. Brandt Tractor will soon feature more than 100 service points across the country as a result of the company's recently announced acquisition of Nortax Canada, set to close Oct. 28, 2019. The dealer change will give Canadian Wirtgen Group equipment operators greater-than-ever access to products, parts and services, available via Brandt's extensive warehouse and distribution network.

"This is an exciting day for all of us at the Wirtgen Group," said Jim McEvoy, president and CEO of Wirtgen America. "We look forward to partnering with Brandt; the scope of their dealer network and their powerful commitment to customer service excellence is unsurpassed."

As a result of this product line addition, Brandt will be ending its long-time relationship with compaction products manufacturer Bomag. Brandt will continue to offer parts, service and warranty service support to its customers for their Bomag products while the line is being phased out.
