Fecon has introduced a new multi-tiered dealership program, including Associate, Partner and Signature levels:

Associate Level -- Often new dealers, these dealers stock a minimal level of Fecon attachments and ancillary parts.

Partner Level -- Dealers who provide a more extensive level attachments and their associated service parts, along with providing some level of service. These dealers provide tractors on a non-exclusive basis.

Signature Level -- These dealers stock Fecon attachments and tractors as well as their corresponding service parts, have at least one on-site Fecon specialist and provides in-shop or in-field service capabilities.

“We have partnered with our Signature Level dealers so that customers will have a knowledgeable, Fecon-trained expert locally available," says Mike Kucharski, Fecon vice president of dealer development. "That coupled with their extensive commitment to equipment and parts inventories, exclusive availability of Fecon tractors, rental fleets and service availability assures customer success in all aspects.”

Fecon's online dealer locator tool drives new customers to Signature and Partner dealers, and allows them to search for attachments, tractors and rentals within 10 to 250 miles from a zip code.
