Dealer principal Jim Engelke said after months of hard work, it was exciting to open to the public on July 6, 2016.
“The Case IH brand offers a wide range of equipment that is essential to many businesses in the north,” he said.
“Their range of tractors, harvesters, hay-making equipment, application equipment and advanced farming systems are all designed to suit to the harsh farming conditions of Northern Australia.”
In addition to Case IH agricultural machinery, KAI will be a retailer for generators, stationary irrigation motors and trucks – all key requirements to operating in a remote region.
“Opening as a public Case IH dealership means we can bring all these benefits to businesses in our area and in particular the ability to provide local support, servicing and parts” Service Manager Julian Eastwell said.
With the expansion of the Ord River Irrigation Scheme and other development activity in the region, Case IH and KAI believe there is a strong market to provide a wide range of farming equipment.
KAI have been in partnership with Case IH for close to three years, supplying machinery for their Goomig development, north of Kununurra.
The dealership and repair centre currently employs 8 full time staff and will grow with demand.
“Case IH has been at the forefront of innovations for decades — such as introducing track systems that reduce ground compaction and satellite technology to maximise productivity. We intend to carry that philosophy of innovation and service through to the way we do business with all our customers in the Kimberley region” said Mr Engelke.
The new dealership is at Lot 396 Moonamang Road, Kununurra phone 08 9148 2580.
