German manufacturer Düvelsdorf Handelsgesellschaft mbH has appointed Lynx Engineering as the sole distributor of the company’s full portfolio in Ireland.
Düvelsdorf is a family-owned company that was established more than 90 years ago, specialising in grassland technology and broadening the portfolio to include silage, tillage and seeding products as well as sweeping machines, transport boxes, front loader implements and snow clearing equipment.
Nick Ewbank, managing director for Lynx Engineering, sees this latest addition to the Lynx product offering as a perfect fit with its existing ranges of tractor implements and accessories.
“Lynx has long been associated with products and systems designed to maximise the productivity and versatility of the tractor. The addition of Düvelsdorf’s extensive line of grassland maintenance and cultivation equipment sits very nicely within our existing product portfolio. We can see real potential for sales growth in Ireland with some 84% of the country’s total agriculture area devoted to grass, predominantly with beef, dairy and sheep enterprises” he said.
Commenting on their latest distributor appointment, Lisa Broihan, international sales manager for Düvelsdorf, said: “We see a major opportunity to establish the Düvelsdorf brand in Ireland where farmers demand machinery that is well designed, solidly built, reliable and competitively priced. The experience of the Lynx team and their established and extensive dealer network across the island of Ireland will be a real asset in our drive to develop a significant presence in this important market.”
Lynx will market and distribute the full range of Düvelsdorf products, along with support and parts supply, through its dealer network. The focus initially will be on grassland maintenance and cultivation equipment, as well as silage rollers, bale spikes, transport boxes and sweepers.
