    Default Woods and Yanmar Announce Strategic Partnership

    This is over a month old but I didn't see it covered yet on TBN:


    Yanmar America Corporation and Woods Equipment Company Announce Strategic Partnership

    Adairsville, GA (January, 28, 2013) - Yanmar America, a major supplier of compact utility tractors, construction equipment, marine and industrial diesel engines and energy systems, and Woods Equipment Company, a leader in the design and manufacturing of tractor attachments and implements, today announced the formation of a strategic partnership.

    Under the terms of the agreement, Yanmar will market and distribute Woods attachments through their nationwide dealer network. The product offering covers a line of agriculture and landscape equipment compatible with Yanmar tractor sizes ranging from 24hp to 49hp. The attachment line includes cutters, finish mowers, snow blowers, and assorted scrapers, discs, rakes, post hole diggers, stump grinders and blades. All equipment will be branded æ·»anmar.

    "This was a natural fit for two premium quality product brands," said Ted Bregar, President of Yanmar America. "We're able to add value to our dealers business and our customers will benefit from a single Yanmar branded product solution and better retail financing options for both the tractor and the attachments."

    According to Jerry Johnson, President of Woods Products Division, 展oods is pleased to be aligned with Yanmar as their attachment supplier partner. Blending OEM and dealer-direct business allows us to optimize our cost structure in building the highest-quality equipment in the market.
    The line of attachments was introduced to Yanmar dealers at their National Tractor Dealer Meeting in December. Dealers will begin placing orders the first of the year with the first shipments to Yanmar dealers expected the beginning of March.

    Check out these slick looking Yanmar branded attachments! This must be the result of the Woods/Yanmar Partnership.

    Since these attachments are painted black, that kind of shoots holes in the theory that the U.S. Yanmar tractors will be changed anytime soon to the international Red/Gray paint scheme.
