Exmark Partners with ECHO Canada, Brings the Red Fleet to Wider Audience

ECHO’s coast-to-coast dealer network to receive Exmark products

LouisvilleKY (November 11, 2011) — Exmark, the leading manufacturer of mowers for lawn care professionals, announced a strategic partnership with the Canada Division of ECHO. This partnership opens the door for Exmark to distribute products to more than 800 dealers in the Canadian marketplace. 

Much like Exmark, ECHO delivers the highest quality products to their customers and constantly evaluates how best to meet the needs of their landscape contractors. 

“The partnership with ECHO was a no-brainer,” shared Rick Olson, president of Exmark. “There are many similarities between our companies, our approach to service and our relentless commitment to quality. We couldn’t be happier about this partnership.”

ECHO Power Equipment (Canada) will begin to service Exmark dealers as of November 1, 2011 with the full fleet in place no later than January 2012. 

“We are excited to be associated with Exmark” commented ECHO Power Equipment Canada’s president, Ed Zynomirski. “They are a first rate organization that shares many of the same corporate values as our company, including Value, Integrity and Performance (VIP). With their industry leading products and our strength of distribution across Canada, we look 

forward to gaining a greater share of the commercial landscape market.” The Canadian Division of ECHO began as a service parts and accessory unit and quickly expanded into a small distribution and shipping warehouse based in Brampton, Ontario. ECHO Power Equipment (Canada) was established in 1985 to support a market for ECHO power tools that was beginning to spread from coast-to- coast.

ECHO’s Canadian operations moved to London, Ontario, in 1989 and began dealer direct sales in 1990.Three separate expansions of its warehouse facilities now supply the full lineup of ECHO power equipment plus a wide range of specialized commercial and pro gardening tools. Today, ECHO Power Equipment (Canada) currently operates with locations in Calgary, Alberta; Lachute, Quebec and their head office in London, Ontario.
