Gough Cat becomes exclusive Weiler dealer in NZ

Gough Cat will distribute US company, Weiler Inc.’s forestry product line in NZ

Following the announcement in August about a preliminary agreement to sell some of its forestry business to US company Weiler Inc., Gough Cat announced today that it has signed a dealer agreement with Weiler to distribute its forestry product line in New Zealand.


Founded in 2000, Weiler has a long history of successfully manufacturing equipment distributed through the global Cat dealer network, says Gough Cat Executive General Manager Chris Heaton.

"These products complement the Caterpillar forestry machines that Gough Cat will continue to offer and we are excited about continuing to supply our customers a wide range of products," Gough Cat executive general manager, Chris Heaton, says.

Gough Cat will distribute and service Weiler forestry products, including wheel skidders and track feller bunchers while continuing to provide and service Cat’s forestry 500 series purpose-built forestry machines designed for log loading, harvesting, and other New Zealand forestry applications.

"Gough Cat and Weiler look forward to growing our relationship further through distributing this portfolio of products for the forestry industry through our extensive dealer network throughout New Zealand," Chris says.

"We are excited to have Gough Cat as the exclusive Weiler dealer for New Zealand, their great history of product support and taking care of customers fits our needs to continue to grow the Weiler brand," Pat Weiler, owner and founder of Weiler, says.

Gough Cat will also supply the New Zealand market with Weiler paving products, and Top Hammer drills.

Weiler paving and drill products will be available in New Zealand later this year, with forestry products becoming available early in 2019, as Caterpillar transitions these forest products.
