Nortrax, Inc. has announced they have been named a Hitachi forestry products dealer effective May 9, 2019.

Hitachi’s purpose-built forestry products will be a strong complement to Nortrax’s John Deere offering and is a natural fit, as both product lines are designed and manufactured through a joint venture – Deere-Hitachi Specialty Products (DHSP) – in Langley, BC.

“Nortrax is excited to see the Hitachi DHSP products join our lineup,” says Chris Holmes, Nortrax president, and CEO. “The focus at Nortrax is providing equipment uptime through proactive customer support. We are leading the charge through advanced technologies and our industry-leading machine monitoring and support. We’re confident that customers will see the positive change immediately. It’s a great day for our Hitachi forestry customers and Nortrax.”

The dealer change will give Hitachi equipment owners the opportunity to increase their operational uptime, thanks to a larger-than-ever offering of products, parts, services, and technology. Additionally, Nortrax operates 29 locations in eastern Canada with great field service technician coverage and support. Existing Nortrax customers will also benefit from the additional forestry product options. The Nortrax area of responsibility will include all its Ontario, Newfoundland, Labrador and Quebec locations.
