EQUIPMENT supplier, Lister Wilder, is strengthening its forestry offering with the exclusive dealership for Kesla in the south of England.

Dan Sharood, Valtra brand manager at Lister Wilder, commented: "We’re thrilled to be adding Kesla to our product portfolio and continuing that partnership the Kesla brand has with Valtra to deliver a full comprehensive package solution to the end customer.

"The range will include forest trailers, loaders and woodchippers, and our service team have recently been trained remotely in each of these product categories. We very much look forward to working with the team at Kesla who share similar values to us as a family owned business for 60 and over 70 years respectively, and an unequivocally shared passion in forestry and farming solutions across all sectors."

Dan brings with him a wealth of experience, having worked in the forestry sector prior to agricultural sales, and has spent the last 10 years representing the Valtra brand; of which, six were at Lister Wilder spearheading its efforts within forestry and arb.

Janne Sinkkonnen, director of tractor forest equipment at Kesla said: "Here at Kesla we have found a great partner in Lister Wilder to represent our brand in the south of England. We have followed their success in representing the Valtra brand over the years and their continued efforts to ensure the forestry sector has the necessary equipment and all-important back-up to continue to grow.

"The partnership is very much a natural move and we look forward to working closely with the team to ensure our product range is front of mind and in the hands of those who require cutting edge forestry and farming solutions."
