Barko adds new distributor
By Barko Hydraulics
May 26, 2016 — Barko Hydraulics, LLC recently announced the addition of Chadwick-BaRoss, Inc. to its distribution network for all forestry equipment product lines. With five locations across Maine, Massachusetts and New Hampshire, Chadwick-BaRoss will carry Barko equipment for the New England region.
“We’re very excited to welcome Chadwick-BaRoss to the Barko team,” said John Janiro, Barko’s director of sales, Eastern Region. “Their established history of providing high quality industrial equipment and excellent customer support makes them an ideal partner to carry our brand of innovative forestry machines. We are confident that they will help expand Barko’s presence in the Northeast, especially in growing our market share for loaders and tracked harvesters and feller bunchers.”
Chadwick-BaRoss was originally founded as the Portland Tractor Company in 1929 before its acquisition by Robert BaRoss and Richard Chadwick in 1959, and today is part of the Strongco Corporation. The company represents several leading heavy equipment manufacturers in their respective industries. Chadwick-BaRoss will carry the full range of Barko forestry products, including loaders, harvesters, feller bunchers, industrial wheeled tractors, forwarders and biomass chippers.
“Barko products certainly fill a need for a lot of our forestry customers,” said Randy Mace, president of Chadwick-BaRoss. “In particular, we haven’t had a feller buncher in our product offering for quite some time, and we’re already finding that Barko’s machine is a good fit for our area. It’s been a great start to what we hope is a long and prosperous relationship for both Chadwick-BaRoss and Barko.”
