Kinze Expands Equipment Distribution In 18 States


Kinze Manufacturing has entered into an agreement with General Implement Distributors, based in Salt Lake City, Utah, to distribute Kinze planters, tillage equipment and grain carts to their dealers in 18 states, mostly in the western U.S.

“This relationship will provide Kinze with access to a significant portion of the industry which most of our dealer network and our sales teams do not currently serve,” said Eric Broadbent, Kinze director of North America sales. “We’re excited by the opportunity to expand the availability of our high-quality product lineup to farmers in these markets. Both companies have a strong customer focus, which makes us a good fit working together.”

General Implement Distributors has been wholesaling farm machinery since 1938. It has 16 full-time territory managers and six branch locations to serve its nearly 1,300 dealers. Under the new agreement, Kinze equipment will be offered by General Implement dealers in Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.

“The addition of the Kinze product line to General Implement fulfills our strategic plan to offer a more complete lineup of products to better serve row-crop dealers and farmers,” said Mark Tibbitts, president of General Implement. “Kinze products will complement our current product offering, taking customers from seedbed preparation through harvest.”

Farmers can order Kinze equipment from General Implement dealers beginning January 4, 2021. For additional information, visit or
