Wacker Neuson and Gehl Corporation End Contract

Wacker Neuson and Gehl Corporation have ended their long-term contract which began in 1999.

Effective December 31, 2011, Wacker Neuson ended its long standing agreement with Gehl Corporation, West Bend, WI. Wacker Neuson has been the exclusive manufacturer of Gehl and Mustang branded compact excavators and all wheel steer loaders since 1999. Christopher Barnard, President and CEO of Wacker Neuson Corporation states: “The termination of the Gehl contract is consistent with our strategy in North America to focus resources and products on the further development of the Wacker Neuson brand for its unique and extensive combined product offering of Compact Equipment as well as Light Equipment.” Barnard further comments, “This increased focus on this broad product range will enhance our ability to better support Wacker Neuson’s extensive North American distribution system.”  Since 2008, Wacker Neuson’s compact excavators, articulated wheel loaders, all wheel steer wheel loaders and dumpers have been offered through an extensive and growing network of Wacker Neuson independent dealers.  Wacker Neuson dealers provide the added value contractors have come to expect from the Wacker Neuson product line and offer complete parts, service and after the sale support.
