FAIRFIELD, Ohio – Finn Corp., a manufacturer of landscape and erosion control equipment, added several full line dealers for its HydroSeeders, Bark Blowers and Straw Blowers product lines. The dealership arrangements are effective immediately and encompass Finn equipment sales, rentals service and parts.

Papé Machinery is now the Finn full line dealer that covers Washington, Oregon, Northern California, and Northwest Nevada. “The Finn products are very complimentary to our existing product lines and markets,” said Hal Hansen, Papé Machinery director of sales and service. “We look forward to helping Finn expand their market base in the Northwest.” Papé has more than 70 years of service to the equipment needs of the construction and forestry industries in California, Nevada, Oregon and Washington.

Security Equipment Co. is a full service distributor of commercial grounds maintenance and construction equipment and becomes Finn’s newest dealer to cover the state of Maryland. Thom Drescher, Security Equipment Co. president said, “We’ve been looking for ways to grow our business in a way that makes sense with our current business plan,” said Drescher. “Finn fits right in with our areas of expertise, and we’re very excited to be representing them.”

Garden State Bobcat Group will represent the Finn product lines in New Jersey. For more than 25 years, Garden State Bobcat has represented compact equipment manufacturers such as Bobcat, Doosan Infracore (formerly Ingersoll-Rand), Pro-Tech, Big Tow, Yanmar and others. "Business conditions over the last couple of years have been tough for many companies in the equipment market" said Rob Woods, vice president of the Garden State Bobcat Group. "However, we felt this presented an opportunity to rebuild our business and further expand. With Finn, we fulfill our goal of expansion with a quality manufacturer who aligns with our commitment to our customers".

“We are excited to welcome these new dealers to the Finn family,” said Finn senior vice president, Mark Middendorf. “With the addition last year of Angie Arnold to our newly created position of vice president of channel development, we made a significant commitment to expand our dealer base in order to better meet the needs of our customers. We are quickly seeing the results of this commitment and are more than pleased with the work Angie has done to help us acquire such high quality dealers. Each of these companies is exceptional.”
