Ahern Australia has been appointed as the Australian distributor for Faresin Industries agricultural products, becoming the sole importer of the range.
Ahern Australia has established a specialist Ahern Australia agricultural division to manage the range of products, and have appointed a dealer network to sell and service these products to end user customers.
The dealer network has access to new Faresin product inventory and technical support from Ahern Australia, as well as spare parts from their national spare parts warehouse in New South Wales, where it currently holds Faresin parts in stock.
The new agricultural division is complementary to Ahern Australia’s existing operations within the construction and rental sectors.
Ahern Australia has appointed two Business Development Managers in the agricultural division, Clayton Schmidt and David Soderstrom, who are both agricultural equipment specialists.
Clayton Schmidt joined from Haulotte Australia and brings 16 years of sales and dealer development experience from the farm machinery and construction equipment sectors. He has previously held positions at Grain King, Sunward, Hysoon Australia, as well as the John Deere dealer, Glenmac Sales & Services.
David Soderstrom started his career in spare parts at Caterpillar Australia in 1999, and has since held sales roles for agricultural and turf equipment dealers and manufacturers, including Godings, a dealer for Kubota, New Holland and Land Pride, as well as hay feed and spraying equipment manufacturers, HARDI Australia, Duncan AG, and BA Group Australia.
Ahern Australia has been servicing the equipment industry since 1989 and is part of the global Ahern Family of Companies. The group is owned by Don F. Ahern, owner of Ahern Rentals, the largest independent rental company in the USA.
The company is also an official distributor for Snorkel mobile elevating work platforms, telehandlers and material lifts.
“We are proud and excited to be appointed as the official distributor for Faresin Industries agricultural products,” Ahern Australia Managing Director Glenn Martin said.
“Faresin has had success to date in Australia and we are looking forward to build upon this strong foundation.”
