Landoll Corporation acquires Brillion Farm Equipment

Landoll Corporation
announced that it has acquired the Brillion Farm Equipment division from
Accuride Corporation.

As part of the agreement
penned on November 2nd, Accuride will transfer the full line of Brillion
tillage and seeding equipment to Landoll, while retaining its key brands and
products related to the trucking and transportation industry.

In the meantime,
manufacturing and production of Brillion Farm Equipment products will transfer
to Landoll manufacturing facilities in Marysville and Beloit, Kansas. Landoll
will, however, maintain an office in Brillion, Wisconsin, for product
engineering, sales and service of the Brillion products. Landoll will also
maintain the staff of Brillion regional territory managers.

“We believe the Brillion Farm
Equipment product line is an ideal fit with Landoll’s reputation for quality
products and brand recognition within the industry,” says Don Landoll, President
and founder of Landoll Corporation. “We’re also confident the acquisition
fulfills part of our goal to expand and diversify our agricultural product line
in order to better fill the needs of today’s top producers.”

“While Brillion Farm
Equipment is an excellent business, the sale of the company is in direct
support of our corporate strategic objectives,” said Bill Lasky, Accuride’s
President, CEO, and Chairman of the Board.  “The agricultural equipment market is inconsistent with our
core focus on the commercial vehicle industry.  The Brillion Farm Equipment brand and people who are
transferring with it will be much better served with Landoll's ownership and

While the Brillion
acquisition expands upon Landoll’s complete line of tillage, it also includes a
coveted line of soil pulverizers, pulvi-mulchers and seeders.

“All of the acquired lines
will continue to carry the Brillion label and we plan to utilize Brillion’s
current dealer network,” explains Jamie Meier, Landoll’s Ag Division Sales

“Brillion pulverizers, which
are ideal for seedbed preparation, range in width from 5 to 46 feet. The
pulvi-mulcher includes three series in widths from 7 to 30 feet. The Brillion
product line also includes a versatile line of seeders for small seed/legume
production, lawn and turf, and food plot seeding.” Meier adds.
