Pella, Iowa - Vermeer Corporation has announced a new partnership agreement with Tubeline Manufacturing, headquartered in Ontario, Canada. Under the new agreement, Tubeline will help to expand the Vermeer full line of hay and forage tools to better serve customers in the provinces of Ontario, Quebec and Maritimes.

"As a fellow leader in the hay and forage industry, Tubeline Manufacturing provides an opportunity to expand our Canadian footprint," said Vermeer Director of Sales Bret Julian. "We have full confidence in the ability of Tubeline to provide current and future Vermeer customers in Canada with the support they need as both companies share similar values for quality, innovative equipment and aftermarket support."

Tubeline sold their first inline bale wrapper in 1995. With manufacturing facilities located in Elmira, Ontario, Tubeline specializes in the development, manufacturing, distribution and sales of hay handling and processing equipment. Their South-Central Ontario location places them in an ideal location to warehouse equipment and parts for channel fulfillment.

"Tubeline is more than ready to take on the role of an Eastern Canada distributor of Vermeer hay and forage equipment - the relationship is a natural fit," said Tubeline Manufacturing Chief Executive Officer Paul Horst. "Our committed territory managers and strong dealer relationships will help drive sales and provide outstanding service to Tubeline and Vermeer customers."
