Barko Hydraulics picks Newlons International to distribute forestry equipment

Updated Aug 30, 2016


Barko Hydraulics has added West Virginia-based Newlons International to its dealer group with sales responsibilities in all of West Virginia and two Maryland counties for the company’s line of forestry equipment.

The dealership will carry Barko loaders, harvesters and feller bunchers, industrial wheeled tractors, forwarders and biomass chippers.

“I think it’s going to be a great partnership,” says Chad Newlon, manager at Newlons International. “Barko has long had a tremendous following in our area, and I’ve already seen a lot of interest in the new B-Series loaders we have in stock. I feel like there’s a really good market here and a terrific opportunity for Barko and Newlons to grow business together.”

Newlons International began in 1958 and has been an International trucks dealer for nearly 50 years.

“We are excited to welcome Newlons International to the Barko team,” says John Janiro, Barko’s director of sales, Eastern Region. “We’re confident that Newlons will provide excellent service to owners of existing Barko equipment in the field, as well as increase new machines sales in their territory.”
