Wacker Neuson SE and Shindaiwa Corp. last week announced an agreement for the exclusive sale and distribution of Wacker Neuson light construction equipment in Japan through the Shindaiwa sales organization beginning Oct. 1. Both partners have had long and successful histories in Japan and believe the new relationship will provide each with the strength for a better future. The Wacker Neuson affiliate in Japan will be closed by the end of 2009.
Shindaiwa Corp. will become the exclusive distributor for Wacker Neuson light equipment products in Japan, and will continue to promote the soil compaction, concrete consolidation and demolition products sold by Wacker Neuson in Japan.
“From our point of view, Shindaiwa Corp. is our preferred partner and we are convinced that this cooperation will benefit both partners,” said Dr. Georg Sick, CEO of Wacker Neuson SE. “With this cooperation, we will be able to provide our customers with the best product and service support in the industry.”Manabu Asomoto, CEO of Shindaiwa Corp. said Wacker Neuson light equipment products have been synonymous with the highest quality and productivity for more than 50 years in the Japanese market.
