Echo to work with Exmark

Nov. 8, 2011 - Exmark, the leading manufacturer of mowers for lawn care professionals, has announced a strategic partnership with the Canada Division of Echo. This partnership opens the door for Exmark to distribute products to more than 800 dealers in the Canadian marketplace. Echo pointed to both companies' goal to offer the highest quality products to their customers and to constantly evaluate how best to meet the needs of their landscape contractors as a reason for the deal.

“The partnership with ECHO was a no-brainer,” Rick Olson,
president of Exmark, said. “There are many similarities between our companies,
our approach to service and our relentless commitment to quality. We
couldn’t be happier about this partnership.”

Echo began to service Exmark dealers as of
November 1, 2011, with the full fleet in place no later than January
2012.

“We are excited to be associated with Exmark,” Echo Canada president Ed Zynomirski said. “It is a first-rate
organization that shares many of the same corporate values as our
company, including value, integrity and performance. With their
industry leading products and our strength of distribution across
Canada, we look forward to gaining a greater share of the commercial
landscape market.” 

The Canadian Division of Echo began as a service parts and accessory
unit and quickly expanded into a small distribution and shipping
warehouse based in Brampton, Ont. Echo Canada was
established in 1985 to support a market for Echo power tools that was
beginning to spread from coast-to- coast.

Echo’s Canadian operations moved to London, Ont., in 1989 and began
dealer direct sales in 1990.Three separate expansions of its warehouse
facilities now supply the full line of Echo power equipment plus a
wide range of specialized commercial and pro gardening tools. Today,
Echo Canada currently operates with locations in
Calgary, Alta., Lachute, Que. and its head office in London, Ont.
