Thomas Equipment Inc. said Torfs Machinery BVBA, the Thomas Dealer for Belgium, showcased Thomas Skid Steer Loaders at Belgium's Foire de Libramont, a major outdoor Fair focusing on agriculture, forestry and agri-food machines.
Torfs Machinery, a major Thomas Skid Steer Loader Dealer based in Schoten, Belgium, prominently displayed Thomas Skid Steer Loaders at its Expo booth area. Torfs is online at http://www.torfs-nv.be .
The Fair, held here July 25 to 28, draws attendance of more than 175,000 people. The Foire de Libramont began in 1926 and is a huge outdoor exhibition that offers a showcase for the rural world, including machinery, livestock breeding, forestry, the agrifood industry, horticulture, study, research, education, culture and more.
Petter Etholm, President, said, "Thomas Equipment has a growing presence in Europe and we are dedicated to serving the agricultural industry as the Thomas tradition is grounded in work that the founding Thomas brothers did for farmers more than a half century ago." Etholm is also Chairman of Thomas' parent company, Osiris Corporation (OSRS).
Gilbert Bedard, Vice President of Global Sales, said, "The Torfs team is doing a wonderful job introducing Thomas Skid Steer Loaders to the agriculture industry in Belgium and elsewhere in Europe we are seeing similar interest."
Mary Jane Clark, Director of European and Australian Operations for Thomas, said, "Europe's farmers are a vital customer base for Thomas as our rugged skid steers are proven workhorses, delivering top performance for farmers whether in tight barn settings or spacious fields."
Thomas skid steers have a long tradition on the farm. Whether on a Thomas 85 or 105, turning in a tight barn stall or moving with a heavy load through a narrow doorway, or operating the larger Thomas 153, 175 or 250 models, all Thomas skid steers make short work of tough, dirty jobs and keep labor costs down, working effectively year-in, year-out.
