Vermeer equipment suppliers taking over distribution of multione articulated utility loaders.
Vermeer Equipment Suppliers (PTY), exclusive distributor for USA based Vermeer Manufacturing Company’s range of equipment for Agriculture, Underground Utility Installation, Tree Care, Organic Waste Recycling, Land Clearing, Mining and Pipeline solutions in sub-Saharan Africa, is expanding its product offerings by adding MultiOne branded articulated loaders and attachments to its product portfolio.
CSF MultiOne SRL, an Italian based OEM has a strong 20-year track record of supplying customers around the world with compact articulated loaders that are known for high quality, versatility, and efficiency. In January of 2020 MultiOne announced it had entered into a distribution agreement with Vermeer Corporation for the supply of Vermeer-branded loader models to be sold, serviced, and supported exclusively through Vermeer dealers across North America.
One year later, Vermeer Equipment Suppliers is now the first Vermeer distributor outside of North America to take up distribution of the MultiOne brand.
In early 2020, CSF MultiOne SA and Vermeer Equipment Suppliers entered into an agreement that outlined the transition of the MultiOne distribution rights to Vermeer Equipment Suppliers (Pty) Ltd. This included the acquisition of all inventory and the employment of outgoing Director at CSF MultiOne SA, Mr Lofty van Wyk. He will be responsible for the full commercialisation of the MultiOne brand within the Company.
“Since the inception of Vermeer South Africa in 2004, we have steadily increased market share of the Vermeer brand in Sub Saharan Africa”, said Frank Beerthuis, Managing Director of Vermeer Equipment Suppliers.
“The economic contraction in sub-Saharan Africa limits our opportunities for organic growth and therefore the reason for us taking on an additional product that complements our existing Vermeer product range. The MultiOne brand meets this criteria and the addition of this line of equipment will allow us to keep focusing on our core business, and continue to provide theexcellent service that our existing customers are already used to, to a new and growing customer base”.
Lofty van Wyk, Segment Manager Articulated Utility Loaders adds “With the already excellent reputation of MultiOne in Southern Africa as a quality-built product and with the Vermeer support structure behind it, we will be geared for further growth”.
“The two brands are complementary to each other and we will certainly build on the synergies and benefits of the MultiOne integration within Vermeer. Vermeer Equipment Supplier’s proven track record and their excellence in Parts, Logistics, Inventory Management and Technical Support will allow the MultiOne brand to become the center of excellence in compact articulated loaders. Benefitting industries such as civil construction, landscaping, estate management, orchards and vineyards, animal husbandry and farming, within Southern Africa”,
