Albany, Ore. – Peterson Cat, authorized CLAAS dealer to customers in Oregon and southwest Washington, has expanded the CLAAS product range available at their retail locations in Albany, Salem, Klamath Falls, and Redmond.

Peterson now offers sales, parts, and service support for the full range of CLAAS baler and hay tools, as well as the Jaguar line of self-propelled forage harvesters. The company has been a CLAAS dealer in Oregon since 2007 when they began selling the Lexion line of combine harvesters.

Randy Grimes, General Manager of Peterson’s Ag Division, expanded the company’s CLAAS product offerings in response to customer demand: “Our customers have been asking for more options, and CLAAS products raise the bar; Jaguar forage harvesters and Lexion combines are industry-leading products worldwide,” Grimes said. “CLAAS quality and performance is critical to our customer’s success. We now offer and support these industry-leading machines to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations. We have responded to our customers’ interest by stocking a much wider range of CLAAS equipment for the ag market to include parts at the four locations.”

“We are excited to grow our dealer presence and to continue our partnership with CLAAS,” said Grimes. “Like us, CLAAS values its customers and is focused on providing the best equipment, the best service and the best customer support.”

Peterson will also begin selling and servicing CLAAS equipment from its new store in Hillsboro, which is scheduled to open in 2018.
