Greenworks Commercial and Carswell Distributing Company announced an exclusive partnership to benefit independent lawn and landscape dealers throughout 13 Southern states. Through the arrangement, Carswell and Carswell OEI will provide distribution, logistics, service and sales support for both the award-winning Greenworks Commercial 82-Volt line of tools and the newly launched Greenworks Elite 40-Volt line of tools, among independent dealers in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Texas and Missouri.
For 70 years, Carswell Distributing Company has been the trusted choice of dealers in its region for supplying a wide array of high-quality lawn and garden equipment, service and support. With the addition of the Greenworks Commercial and Greenworks Elite lines to its portfolio, Carswell will now offer dealers a broad line of lithium-ion, battery-powered outdoor equipment, including a selection of stand-on and ride-on commercial-grade zero-turn mowers later this year.
“Unlike some of its battery-powered competitors, Greenworks Commercial is not a niche company in the sense that it truly has an outdoor power equipment solution for everyone that shops in the independent dealer channel,” said Will Parsley, president of Carswell Distributing Company. “The 82-Volt product is second-to-none in terms of power, runtime and durability, allowing landscape and turf management professionals to get the job done in a greener way, while the new 40-Volt Elite line is the perfect solution for homeowners who prefer to shop in the dealer channel because of the expertise and service that is inherent in doing so. Stocking both of these lines will allow our dealers to better compete in all market segments.”
“Greenworks Commercial is excited for the opportunity to partner with one of the most trusted and well-respected distributors in the industry, in Carswell,” said Chris Allen, president of Greenworks North America. “We’re at the forefront of the lithium-ion battery-powered movement in OPE and with this new partnership our company is well-positioned to take advantage of that growing trend, providing high-quality equipment that gets the job done in a more environmentally-friendly manner.”
The comprehensive offering of Greenworks Commercial and Greenworks Elite tools will be available through Carswell and Carswell OEI dealer networks beginning in the first quarter of 2018.
