The Brandt Group of Companies have been named a Hitachi forestry products dealer effective May 9, 2019.

Hitachi’s purpose-built forestry products will be a strong complement to Brandt’s full-line John Deere offering and is a natural fit, as both product lines are designed and manufactured through a joint venture – Deere-Hitachi Specialty Products (DHSP) – in Langley, B.C.

“This is an exciting day for Brandt and a big win for Hitachi equipment owners.” says Brandt president and CEO, Shaun Semple. “Hitachi’s strong forestry lineup is highly-compatible with our existing John Deere offering, so loggers currently operating Hitachi equipment will be able to come directly to Brandt for unparalleled customer support from Day One!”

The dealer change will give Hitachi equipment owners the opportunity to increase their operational uptime, thanks to a larger-than-ever offering of products, parts and services, including Isuzu engine parts, available via Brandt’s extensive service network and warehouse facilities. Existing Brandt customers will also benefit from additional forestry product options.

With headquarters in Regina, Sask., Brandt’s area of responsibility will include AlbertaSaskatchewanManitobaNew BrunswickNova Scotia, and P.E.I.
