Altorfer Inc. to Add Full Service Ag Facility in Dix, Illinois


, IL (June 9, 2010) – Altorfer Inc. is pleased to announce that construction will soon begin on a full service ag facility in Dix, Illinois.

The new ag facility will be located one mile east of the 1-57 and Dix interchange, with plans to open in the fourth quarter of this year.

Pat Puntoni, vice president of Altorfer Inc.’s ag division, says the expansion will allow the ag division to better serve their growing customer base in southern Illinois.

“The location for this new facility has exceptional interstate and two lane road access to all parts of southern Illinois, and is located at a spot where the majority of our customers in southern Illinois will be within an hour drive of our facility. The road system in the area will also accommodate our customers who wish to drive their machines to and from our location,” says Puntoni. “We are excited to provide a more accessible facility for these customers, with full service capabilities.”

This location will be a full service farm equipment dealership, representing the Challenger, RoGator, TerraGator, and Lexion brands to agricultural customers in Altorfer Inc.’s southern Illinois ag territory. Fabick Cat will continue to serve this area as the designated Caterpillar® dealership.

The Dix location will join Altorfer Inc.’s three present ag facilities; a full service location in Clinton, Illinois, a parts location in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and a parts location in Sterling, Illinois.
