Sales Conference

In conjunction with the live demo, Tigercat hosted a dealer sales conference at the Franklin Center located on the Mississippi State University campus. This gave Tigercat engineering staff the opportunity to present major design changes for each product line and gain feedback from the dealer network.

Inc., Forestry 21, Forest Pro Inc., MidSouth Forestry Equipment, Patrick Miller Tractor Co., Smith Equipment LLC, Smith & Turner Equipment Co., Tejas Equipment, Inc. and Tidewater Equipment Co. were in attendance.
