Tigercat Industries recently announce that Cuoq Forest Diffusion (CFD) based in Saint Pal de Mons is now representing the TCi equipment brand at the national level in France. Previous TCi dealer for France, Clohse Group, will continue to service the Benelux region and northwestern Germany.
Founder and CEO, Jean-Marie Cuoq has been involved in the French forest sector as a forester and contractor since 1984 and has used mechanized equipment in his harvesting operations since 1990. In 2005 Jean-Marie started an equipment repair business. In 2016 he expanded into equipment sales, naming the new entity Cuoq Forest Diffusion. CFD has developed strong service capabilities and a focus on parts support and availability.
“I am grateful for the trust that Tigercat Industries has placed in me and my team,” says Jean-Marie. “We are ready to work diligently, promoting the TCi brand and establishing a strong presence throughout France.”
COO, Philippe Wion adds, “This partnership marks an important step for Cuoq Forest Diffusion. Tigercat Industries is renowned for its robust and high quality forestry equipment. To be entrusted with such a renowned brand is of course a great satisfaction. The arrival of TCi products is consistent with our strategy of representing only premium quality brands.”
Matt Roberts, Tigercat Industries sales manager for Europe comments, “We are excited to work with such an exceptional organization as Cuoq Forest Diffusion to grow our population of TCi products in France. We are confident in the team’s abilities to support the forestry professionals of France. We look forward to a long and successful collaboration.”
