Brandt Tractor publicly unveils new, state-of-the-art facility
SASKATOON, Sept. 10, 2015 /CNW/ - After 23 years of service to the Saskatoon and northern Saskatchewan construction and forestry industry from their location on Millar Avenue in Saskatoon's North Industrial area, Brandt Tractor Ltd. is excited to welcome the public to their brand new 60th Street home. The all-new facility represents a well-timed vote of confidence by the company in the continuing strength of the Saskatoon and area economy and its industry base.
"Saskatoon has always been a key market for us, so we pulled out all the stops in the creation of this facility," says Brandt President, Shaun Semple. "Its unique, forward-looking design and increased capacity will significantly enhance our ability to do what we do best; to help our customers to be productive and profitable by offering them the best support in the industry."
The larger, LEAN-designed new facility was created to easily accommodate the growing size range within John Deere's product line; from small skid steer loaders to large Production Class construction and mining equipment, as well as giving local businesses access to a greatly expanded service department and on-hand parts and whole goods inventory.
"Our provincial economy is tremendously resilient and we see significant long-term strength in the industry," adds Saskatoon Branch Manager, Rod Bowes. "With the unveiling of this purpose-built facility – the only one of its kind in this market - we're demonstrating our firm commitment to our customers."
The September 11th Grand Opening event will feature a number of new John Deere Construction and Forestry models never before seen in Saskatchewan, including Deere's much-anticipated 1050K Production Class dozer, along with a 2:30pm program and presentation, shop tours, live entertainment, free food and beverages and a long list of door prizes.
Brandt will proudly welcome the public to view this exciting new facility located at 800-60th Street West (across from SaskTel Centre off of Highway #16 West) at the Grand Opening event on Friday, September 11, 2015 from 2:00pm - 8:00pm.
