Fecon, LLC, a 22-year TCIA corporate member company based in Lebanon, Ohio, has purchased the Vermeer line of forestry mulching products and established a global distribution agreement with Vermeer. This distribution agreement with Vermeer, a 38-year TCIA corporate member company based in Pella, Iowa, will be rolled out to Vermeer dealerships on a controlled basis throughout 2021.
“Adding Fecon engineering and technology will make it easier for customers to buy the equipment best suited to their needs,” says Bob Dieckman, Fecon CEO. “With their extensive coverage and high standard of customer support, as well as the professional and strategic Vermeer sales organization, we are certain both organizations will benefit from the partnership.”
Fecon will start the process with a select yet global group of Vermeer dealers in 2021, and will strategically specify products and methodically expand from there. The company will assume production and support of the Vermeer model FT100 and FT300 forestry mulching tractors, and has begun moving these functions to their Lebanon, Ohio factory.
“Fecon’s forestry innovation and product lineup is a great complement to our equipment portfolio,” says Doug Hundt, Vermeer president of industrial solutions. “With a lineup of products that support the land-clearing, utility-right-of-way and fire-mitigation markets, their mulching attachments and tractors will give our dealers a broader portfolio to support those customers we are already working with in those markets.”
