JLG, Same Deutz-Fahr Ending Telehandler Licensing Deal

05 September 2017

JLG Industries, Inc., a global supplier of aerial work platforms and telescopic handlers, and Same Deutz-Fahr (SDF), a European manufacturer of tractors, harvesting machines and diesel engines, have jointly announced the suspension of the consolidated license agreement that had SDF-branded telehandlers being produced by JLG.

The license agreement, originally dating back to a memorandum of understanding signed in 2004, saw JLG to supply its line of compact telehandlers to SDF for sale in Europe. The machines were branded with SDF’s Agrovector trademarks and incorporated engines from Deutz as well as technology from JLG. The agreement ends Oct. 1.

“The conclusion of the agreement respects the terms defined in the contract,” said Jonathan Dawson, senior commercial director for Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Russia. “JLG will provide Agrovector telescopes to the Deutz-Fahr dealership network until Sept. 30 and will continue to provide consistent assistance.”

Both parties said they would work to ensure a smooth transition to the conclusion of the contract. Any Agrovector-related warehouse stock can be sold after October and will include warranty and support from JLG as in the past. Spare parts will continue to be available for at least 10 years, the companies said.
