Line construction: Barko Hydraulics announces the addition of Morin Diesel to its dealer network for land clearing equipment in the Northeast U.S.
“We’re excited to bring a growing company like Morin Diesel aboard our dealer network,” said Katie Grymala, marketing coordinator for Barko. “Their focus on forestry, and on mulching equipment in particular, makes them a perfect fit to carry our powerful machines.”
Operating out of a new 14,000-square-foot facility in Portland, Connecticut, Morin Diesel will handle sales, rentals and service of Barko industrial wheeled tractors (IWT) for several states across the Northeast U.S., from Pennsylvania and Maryland up through New England. The company will also offer back of cab loaders and other Barko product lines in their more immediate vicinity.
“The Barko IWT is a top-notch rubber-tired machine for the land clearing market, so it was an easy decision to take on the product line,” said Jesse Morin, president of Morin Diesel. “My heart has always been in the woods since growing up in the family land clearing business, and I’m looking forward to this new chapter and collaboration with Barko.”
