UK based Company G T Bunning and Sons Ltd and USA based Company Norwood Sales Inc have entered into a licenced agreement to manufacture OEM manure spreaders designed specifically for the North American market.
The agreement has been fuelled by growing demand for ‘Bunning manure spreaders’ in North America over the past 15 years.
Dan Norwood, owner of Norwood Sales Inc (both an established agricultural sales Company and state of the art manufacturer) based in Fargo ND, knew the market for manure spreaders was a growing one and a market he felt was right for Norwood.
Following extensive research looking for an established brand, one with a good reputation and that was already known throughout North America he decided that Bunning was to be the machine of choice. Bunning was not only well known in North America but worldwide, a Company with over a 100 years’ experience of servicing the agricultural community, a market leader where strength and reliability are key.
The timing of the two Companies allegiance could not have been better. It coincided directly as Bunning was actively seeking/in search of a manufacturer strategically placed to service both the USA and Canada. A manufacturer that held the same core values Bunning held. It did not take long for the agreements to be drawn up, signed and manufacturing to commence.
Norwood Sale Inc history.
Norwood Sales was founded by Bob Norwood in 1992 with a main goal of distributing high quality, reliable agricultural products through a dealer network and to local farmers. Originally responsible for distributing the Kwik Kleen Grain Cleaner, Bob established a large geographic area of coverage and large list of dealers. With much success came more opportunities, and over the years Norwood Sales has made multiple strategic partners to increase the products it has available. With the business growing Bob’s son Dan joined the business and was responsible for sales and purchasing. Over the next few years Norwood Sales built a nation-wide network of customers and dealers that have come to rely on the reputation and performance of these great products.
In early 2004, Dan Norwood purchased the successful business from Bob and continues to make the company grow today. Norwood Sales first expansion was in 2006 with a 27,000-sq. ft. sales and assembly facility and 20 acres of lot space in Union, Nebraska. With the acquisition of the Union facility Norwood Sales territory was able to expand south into areas previously to far to cover from Cooperstown. In the spring of 2010 Norwood Sales completed its Flagship Facility or Home Base in Horace, North Dakota. This Facility has two large buildings with approximately 56,000-sq. ft. of sales and warehouse space and 35 acres of display lot. With the addition of the two new facilities Norwood Sales has grown to over 100,000-sq. ft. of Sales and warehouse space. Dan and his team of sales people take pride in the fact that we are a small company with big capabilities
