Gough Cat signs dealer agreement with US company Weiler Inc

Gough Cat is excited to announce an agreement with United States company Weiler Incorporated to distribute its forestry product line in New Zealand.

Founded in 2000, Weiler has a long history of successfully manufacturing equipment distributed through the global Cat dealer network, says Gough Cat Executive General Manager Chris Heaton.

“These products complement the Caterpillar forestry machines that Gough Cat will continue to offer and we are excited about continuing to supply our customers a wide range of products.”

Gough Cat will distribute and service Weiler forestry products, including wheel skidders and track feller bunchers, while continuing to provide and service Cat’s forestry 500 series purpose-built forestry machines designed for log loading, harvesting and other New Zealand forestry applications.

“Gough Cat and Weiler look forward to growing our relationship further through distributing this portfolio of products for the forestry industry through our extensive dealer network throughout New Zealand,” says Chris Heaton.

“We are excited to have Gough Cat as the exclusive Weiler dealer for New Zealand, their great history of product support and taking care of customers fits our needs to continue to grow the Weiler brand,” says Pat Weiler, owner and founder of Weiler.

“We remain strongly committed to our forestry business and expect Weiler’s forestry customers will benefit greatly from the exceptional sales and service that Gough Cat are proud to be known for,” says Chris Heaton.

Gough Cat will also supply the New Zealand market with Weiler paving products, and Top Hammer drills.

“Our product lineup of asphalt paving equipment and rock drills compliment the Cat paving product line, providing contractors a one-stop solution for their paving and drilling needs,” says Pat Weiler.

This new agreement follows Caterpillar Inc’s announcement in August that it had entered into a preliminary agreement to sell some of its forestry business to Weiler.

Weiler paving and drill products will be available in New Zealand later this year, with forestry products becoming available early in 2019, as Caterpillar transitions these forest products.

“This is a positive move and a smooth transition is well underway, supported by Weiler’s proven track record of working with Cat dealers all over the world,” says Chris Heaton.
