Greenman Machinery Co. has signed a contract with Morbark Inc. to become the exclusive Morbark Tree Care Products dealer in China, excluding Taiwan. Winn, Mich.-based Morbark manufactures tree care, sawmill, recycling, forestry and biomass chipping and grinding equipment.

Greenman Machinery Group Holding Co. is a dedicated sales and professional service provider of equipment in the lawn and garden, turf and grounds care, and landscaping and irrigation systems markets. Headquartered in Capital Airport Industry Zone C, Shunyi District of Beijing, Greenman has more than 100 sales outlets across China. Established in 1995, Greenman has grown from a few people to more than 1,000 employees.

The two companies held a contract signing ceremony on Sept. 11, as part of Michigan Governor Rick Snyder’s 10-day investment mission to China and Japan.

“The best manufacturer/dealer relationships extend benefits far beyond the two companies involved,” said Jim Shoemaker Jr., Morbark president. “This relationship brings the high-quality local sales and service support that Greenman is known for, as well as access to the reliability and labor-saving qualities of Morbark equipment, to current and potential customers throughout China. In addition, the continued growth of both Morbark and Greenman supports the local economies in both companies’ countries.”

“We are proud to represent the Morbark Tree Care Products Line in China,” said Li Min, president of Greenman Machinery Co. “Greenman is the leading outdoor power product distributor and service provider in China, and China is making tremendous efforts in cleaning its air and greening its environment. With the addition of Morbark Tree Care Products, Greenman has the full complement of equipment to help professional landscaping contractors and municipalities throughout the country best fit their tree care solutions.”
