Great Plains isn’t buying into all the talk about a downturn in equipment sales, and the implement company is introducing four new products this year to show it. The products, two of which are new equipment categories for the company, were unveiled last week at a media preview in the KCI Expo Center in Kansas City. Dealers got their first look at them, too.
“There’s a lot of uncertainty in the ag world now, and people do ask us how we’re doing,” says Linda Salem, president of Great Plains Equipment, citing factors such as international competition, a predicted softening in machinery sales, and OEM pressure on dealers to carry only one brand of equipment.
“I’m pleased and somewhat amazed to say that, despite all of those challenges, our first six months have been a record six months for the Great Plains division. We also know that In order for that [growth] to continue, we have to keep delivering great innovate products. And that is the part of the bargain we are going to keep up.”
Here’s a quick list of the products, which we will dissect for you now. For more information, visit www.greatplainsag.com.
