At GIE+Expo last week, DFD Loaders announced that it will be establishing a dealer network throughout the United States in 2020. The company partners with Schäffer.
The company's equipment line is distributed in 50 countries and boasts a 63-year history of innovation in compact articulated and telescopic wheel loaders.
Since its inception, the long-term U.S. distribution strategy has been designed to include an initial period of direct-to-consumer sales, in order to interact with the market at an intimate level and gain direct insight into the needs of the fast-growing market for compact-articulated wheel loaders in the country.
“When we began to research the market, some of the most consistent feedback was that the fast rollout of dealers had hurt other brands’ capability to keep up with the market’s demand for parts and service. In addition, this strategy had created dealer networks with inadequate knowledge of those products. This was never an option for the Schäffer brand, known all over the world for exceptional white-glove level service,” says David Font, president and CEO of DFD Loaders.
As many equipment brands have recognized the opportunity in the U.S. market and have begun to introduce compact articulated loaders, DFD Loaders takes pride in being the exclusive U.S. distributor of Schäffer construction equipment, a brand with a global reputation for superior German engineering that has continued to be a market trailblazer globally for more than six decades. Schäffer’s U.S. product lineup meets EPA Tier 4 Final emission standards and is compatible with most skid steer attachments in the market, due to a universal quick-connect headstock, which comes standard.
