Mahindra USA, the number one selling tractor brand in the world based on volume, announced the opening of its new Midwest Authorized Distribution Center will open in mid-February. It will serve a six-state area to meet demand for Mahindra products.
This new 15-acre facility is a joint project with long-time Mahindra partner, Kansas Machine Works (KMW), located in Lyons, Kansas. This assembly and distribution center will serve Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota with the ability to ship 150 tractors per month once fully operational.
This is Mahindra USA’s fifth distribution center in North America; the other facilities are located in Texas, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Georgia.
The Midwest Authorized Distribution Center will employ 10-15 full-time employees that will ensure product quality, safety and offer the industry’s top-fulfillment lead time to Mahindra dealers. The Kansas facility will also have a dedicated service and A/V training room to support Mahindra Service Training Schools; it is scheduled for completion in April 2015.
“The addition of a fifth distribution facility underscores our continued commitment to investing in infrastructure to support the Mahindra product line and brand growth. There is a focused effort to provide our dealers with fast response times to meet their growing market requirements,” said Mani Iyer, president, Mahindra USA. “Mahindra is the fastest growing tractor brand in North America because of our emphasis on dealer-first and customer-first philosophy.”
Mahindra’s tractors range from 22 to105 horsepower and include the new Max series tractors.
