New Albany, Ohio, April 23, 2007 – Commercial Vehicle Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: CVGI) announced today that the Commercial Vehicle Group's (CVG) KAB brand performance seats are now being offered at Branson Tractor, a subsidiary of Branson Machinery LLC. Branson Tractor is a U.S. provider of affordable, high quality farm equipment. While the CVG KAB brand seats are optional on Branson's complete line, they will be an incentive option with the purchase of a model 2910 tractor in Branson's current line.
By offering the KAB brand seats through its dealer network, Branson Tractor is able to better meet the specific seat durability and comfort needs of its American customer base thanks to CVG and its seat expertise.
“Through this promotion, we've aligned the quality engineering of a Branson tractor with the unique ergonomic design of our high performance seats,” stated Ray Miller, Vice President Sales, CVG Aftermarket. “We feel customers will appreciate the opportunity to select a CVG KAB brand seat for their Branson Tractor. This is a great combination from two high-quality providers; it gives end users quality and value at the same time.
“This also complements our corporate strategy to diversify our product offerings and further develop new markets beyond heavy-duty trucks. We view it as an important partnership that helps achieve important goals we have set for CVG and our KAB brand seats,” Miller said.
