Two Midwest fertilizer equipment dealers have become the first to offer the line of dry fertilizer bulk material handling equipment offered by GSI’s InterSystems brand.
Davis Equipment, based in Johnston, Iowa, and FEI, Inc. based in Valley City, North Dakota, now sell and service InterSystems fertilizer handling, weighing, blending and product conditioning equipment, primarily serving independent and larger agricultural co-ops in their marketing territories.
“Both dealers have marketed AGCO’s Willmar fertilizer tender and spreader equipment product line for decades, so we’re very excited to have their seal of approval on our blending and material handling equipment as well,” said Nate Reznechek, crop nutrient equipment sales manager for GSI, which is also a part of AGCO.
Reznechek said the addition of the InterSystems brand product line by these two dealers reflects growing ag retailer demand for high-speed, higher-capacity dry fertilizer equipment. “This partnership ensures local support and service to the majority of the important dry fertilizer markets they serve,” he noted.
GSI supports the full-site crop nutrients blending process, including truck, rail and barge receiving, ingredient storage, truck loading, open tripper belt conveyor for commodity flat storage, blending, and facility design and layout.
Paul Davis, chief executive officer for Davis Equipment, which serves customers in Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin, said he is pleased to expand his company’s relationship with GSI InterSystems.
“They are an emerging market leader in the dry fertilizer industry with a tremendous amount of momentum,” Davis said. “GSI’s knowledge and track record in the grain industry has enabled the InterSystems brand to offer product features and benefits with significant advantages over the competition, as well as important safety benefits.”
“FEI is extremely excited to represent InterSystems blending and handling equipment,” said Matt Klabo, vice president of the company’s fertilizer division. “Their product line will enable FEI to provide our customers with faster, safer and more durable product.”
Klabo noted that FEI recently added a millwright service, which will offer fertilizer facility inspections, new equipment installation, emergency repairs and scheduled preventative maintenance inspections. “FEI feels this service will help ensure our customers’ equipment is fully functional and makes it through the busy spring season,” he explained. FEI’s coverage area extends from Northern Minnesota through Nebraska and westward through Washington and Oregon.
InterSystems brand products will also continue to be available directly from GSI. For additional information, visit www.InterSystems.net.
