Morbark’s staff
gathered to watch as the first Boxer unit completed at the Morbark factory in Winn, Mi., a model 320 compact
loader, was unveiled with a boxing-themed introduction.

“It’s been an amazing journey and a real testament
to the teamwork and dedication of our staff,” Jim Shoemaker, Jr., president,
Morbark, said. “In the 84 days since we received the intellectual property, we
have moved inventory from Oklahoma to Michigan, invested in additional long-lead
inventory, set up aftermarket parts and service support for
existing Boxer customers, created a production line—including weld and assembly
fixtures—created marketing material, completed our first dealer training
sessions, and today, completed the production of our first unit. A lot of people played a role in making this
a reality. In fact, I sat down and started listing the Morbark employees who
have played a role in helping with the Boxer acquisition and production line,
and I stopped counting at 50. It was truly amazing how many of the team came
together to pull this off.”

Currently Morbark is working to fill Boxer back
orders, as well as working with their authorized dealer network and previous
Boxer dealers to ensure that customers receive unmatched service, after-sales
support and fast, efficient parts fulfillment. In June, Morbark is scheduled to
reach its full production capacity.

“This product line will fit like a glove with
the rest of the tree care products that we make,” said Shoemaker, “as well as allow
Morbark, our dealers and our customers to penetrate new markets and create new
opportunities for their businesses.”
