Landoll Corporation announces today that it has acquired the Brillion Farm Equipment division from Accuride Corporation.
Accuride will transfer the full line of Brillion tillage and seeding equipment to Landoll. Manufacturing and production of Brillion Farm Equipment products will transfer to Landoll manufacturing facilities in Marysville and Beloit, Kan.
Landoll will maintain an office in Brillion, Wisc., for product engineering, sales and service of the Brillion products. Landoll will also maintain the staff of Brillion regional territory managers.
“We believe the Brillion Farm Equipment product line is an ideal fit with Landoll’s reputation for quality products and brand recognition within the industry,” says Don Landoll, President and founder of Landoll Corporation. “We’re also confident the acquisition fulfills part of our goal to expand and diversify our agricultural product line in order to better fill the needs of today’s top producers.”
“While Brillion Farm Equipment is an excellent business, the sale of the company is in direct support of our corporate strategic objectives,” said Bill Lasky, Accuride’s President, CEO, and Chairman of the Board. “The agricultural equipment market is inconsistent with our core focus on the commercial vehicle industry. The Brillion Farm Equipment brand and people who are transferring with it will be much better served with Landoll's ownership and focus."
The acquired lines of Brillion products will retain the Brillion brand, and Landoll will also use the Brillion distribution network of dealers.
