Bandit Industries has added three new dealer locations to the North American market in the first quarter of 2013, and in the past 24 months the company has nearly doubled sales volume while adding 180 employees and 24 new dealers in the United States and Canada.
“Having qualified dealers committed to our products — and to providing our customers with the best possible parts and service support — was a key to our record sales year in 2012,” said Jerry Morey, Bandit Industries president. “Our dealers are continuing to contribute greatly to our growth as we move through the first quarter of 2013. We have invested considerable resources over the past two years to both improve and expand our dealer network, and our customers have really noticed. Bandit has never been so well represented, not just in the United States and Canada, but around the world. I can’t think of a better way to start our 30th year in business.”
Bandit’s newest dealers will serve customers in Northern Florida, Southern Florida and Central Canada. All will carry Bandit’s line of hand-fed wood chippers and stump grinders in addition to complete parts and service support. The locations will also carry Zenith chipper knives and Revolution stump grinder cutting systems available for most major chipper/stump grinder makes and models.

“Our dealers are supported by several in-house and factory field representatives that regularly travel to assist in sales, parts and service training,” said Morey. “In addition, we hold dealer meetings every three years at our company headquarters to cover in-depth training on equipment operation and service. Our last meeting was in 2011, but with our explosive growth and wear parts partnerships with Zenith Cutter and New River Equipment, we will be holding a special dealer meeting later this year. That meeting will focus on providing even better sales, parts and service support for our customers.”
Bandit has more than 100 dealer locations in North America and more than 160 locations worldwide. It is a leading manufacturer of equipment for the tree service, logging, land clearing, biomass and wood waste recycling industries.
