Kramp Group incorporating Grene and Kongskilde Industries A/S have entered into a strategic cooperation about the distribution of wearing and spare parts. The agreement will be rolled out in the first half of 2016.
Kongskilde considers customer service and consistency of supply key competitive parameters and has made targeted efforts to strengthen that part of the business. Therefore, the company has now entered into a strategic cooperation with Kramp Group on the distribution of wearing and spare parts for agriculture. The agreement states that Kramp Group will take over the European distribution of Kongskilde wearing and spare parts to dealers in the first half of 2016.
“We have for a long time wished for quick delivery of wearing and spare parts to our customers all over Europe. With Kramp/Grene as our partner, Kongskilde is now able to offer the best delivery service in the market”, CEO of Kongskilde Industries, Ole Gade, says.
As part of the cooperation, original parts can now be delivered by Kramp Group to the dealer network. Kramp will take over the stock obligation, and to the Kongskilde dealers this will mean that the ordering process will be simpler as Kramp already delivers to most of them.
“Delivery of Kongskilde parts fit very well into our distribution set-up, and the delivery times will be extremely attractive to the majority”, Kramp Group Executive Board Member Carsten Thygesen says. “The customer will order online or by phone and have the dealers will benefit from our fast and reliable delivery service. It can hardly be any simpler.”
According to Kongskilde, customers often ask directly whether the parts can be delivered via Kramp Group because of their quick delivery. Over the years Kramp have built enormous experience in online ordering and quick delivery. Kongskilde can now benefit from the knowledge of Europe’s largest wholesaler in agricultural parts.
“The released resources means that we can focus on what we do best: develop and produce machines that creates value for the farmer and contributes to a healthy Kongskilde”, Ole Gade, CEO Kongskilde states.
During the months to come Kramp Group will be building a comprehensive stock of Kongskilde parts and the employees will be trained to be ready to supply. Until then the customers will continue to order their parts with Kongskilde.
