Getting The Low Down on Loaders
The sale of Quicke loaders (manufactured by Swedish firm Alo) has been steadily increasing year on year.
To improve product knowledge and to say ‘Well Done!’ for meeting and exceeding targets, the Power Farming Group (who import the loader
s) recently took 12 reps from Australian Ag dealers on a trip to visit the factories which produce Quicke Loaders. Honeycombes had two staff taking part in the trip to factories in Ningbo, China and also Umea, Sweden. Honeycombes currently receive loaders from Alo’s American and Swedish factories. However, with the growth in sales, Alo built the Chinese factory to meet demand – the factories will be producing close to 40,000 loader frames per year.
As well as touring the plants, staff also had some down time in Shanghai and touring Swedish forests on SKI-doos – quite a temperature change for the 12 Aussies!!
