January 27, 2015 – Mahindra USA, the number one selling tractor brand in the world based on volume, announces the opening of its new Midwest Authorized Distribution Center in mid-February 2015 that will serve a six state area to meet the increasing demand for Mahindra products. This new 15-acre facility is a joint project with long-time Mahindra partner, Kansas Machine Works (KMW), located in Lyons, Kansas. This Assembly and Distribution Center will serve Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota with the ability to ship 150 tractors per month once fully operational.
