DFD Loaders Looking For Dealers

By Mike Brezonick23 October 2019

DFD Loaders, Inc., the U.S. distributor of Schäffer Maschinenfabrik GmbH construction equipment, announced it is seeking to establish a dealer network throughout the U.S. beginning in 2020 and is welcoming dealer inquiries.

Since its inception, DFD said the long-term U.S. distribution strategy for Schäffer was intended to include an initial period of direct-to-consumer sales, in order to interact with the market at an intimate level and gain direct insight into the needs of the fast-growing market for compact-articulated wheel loaders in the U.S.

“When we began to research the market, some of the most consistent feedback was that the fast rollout of dealers had hurt other brands’ capability to keep up with the market’s demand for parts and service,” said David Font, president and CEO of DFD Loaders. “In addition, this strategy had created dealer networks with inadequate knowledge of those products. This was never an option for the Schäffer brand, known all over the world for exceptional white-glove level service.”

Founded in 1956, Schäffer is aglobal manufacturer of compact and telescopic articulated wheel loaders whose products are sold in nearly 50 countries. Headquartered in Coral Springs, Fla., DFD Loaders is the exclusive importer and distributor of Schäffer constructionequipment in the U.S., with a product lineup that includes 16 loader modelsranging from 25 to 157 hp, targeting construction, landscape, tree care, snow removal and property maintenance industries.
