Yanmar to brand and distribute Woods attachments

Updated Jan 29, 2013

Yanmar E1359405496707Yanmar America announced today that it will begin marketing and distributing Woods attachments. The products will be branded under the “Yanmar” name.

The Woods line includes cutters, finish mowers, snow blowers and more agriculture and landscaping attachments. All are compatible with Yanmar tractors between 24 and 49 horsepower.

“This was a natural fit for two premium quality product brands,” said Ted Bregar, President of Yanmar America in a prepared statement. “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.”

Jerry Johnson, President of Woods Products Division, said the partnership is a great opportunity for his company.

“Blending OEM and dealer-direct business allows us to optimize our cost structure in building the highest-quality equipment in the market,” Johnson said in a prepared statement.

Yanmar says dealers can begin placing orders now and expect the first shipments to arrive at the beginning of March.
