CLAAS of America and MirTech Harvest Center continue to expand their partnership to deliver excellence in customer service and technical support in the Delta with the success of their newest dealership in Stuttgart, Arkansas. To better support rice growers during harvesting, the location in Stuttgart is now open, operational and fully staffed.
“The Delta region is an essential part of the distribution strategy for CLAAS and MirTech, and it is also an important rice-growing area,” explained CLAAS of America President and GM – Sales Eric Raby. “Our LEXION combines are particularly well suited for challenging rice crops, so ensuring we have superior sales and service support is imperative. We are proud of the support MirTech continues to provide and look forward to continued growth together.”
In addition to LEXION combines, MirTech sells and offers service for the other products in the CLAAS long line of equipment, including XERION and AXION tractors, JAGUAR forage harvesters and its balers and hay tools. MirTech’s three Delta locations are strategically placed near one another so the dealership can provide comprehensive customer training and 24/7 in-field support to growers quickly and efficiently.
MirTech, founded by Colorado native Robert Krattli, is a large dealer group with an existing multi-location operation in Eastern Europe and a long-standing history with CLAAS. Their resources and experience have allowed them to quickly step into the Delta region to support the needs of current and future CLAAS customers.
“Nineteen years of experience with the brand has confirmed to us and our customers that CLAAS equipment is superior,” explained MirTech General Manager Tom Livingston. “We along with CLAAS are committed to the Delta region and have long-term plans for our growth and success.”
LEXION combines, assembled in Omaha, Nebraska, are designed to handle many of the challenges presented by rice crops. The high-capacity harvesters offer a TERRA TRAC undercarriage, hardened components and a superior hybrid threshing and separation system that work particularly well in wet and challenging rice harvesting conditions.
“Ensuring rice growers have leading-edge farm equipment and support for successful harvesting is not a want; it’s a must,” said Raby. “In partnership with MirTech, we are able to provide rice growers the proper equipment, support and training they need to ensure successful harvesting seasons over and over again.”
