You’ll soon by seeing “Miller By Fast” on red pull-type sprayers, now that a deal’s been made between Miller St. Nazianz, Inc. and Fast Distributing.
Miller St. Nazianz has entered into an agreement to sell its Miller pull-type product line to Fast Distributing of Mt. Lake, MN.
Fast will build the Miller 500-gallon pull-type sprayer in its current configuration and offer it along with their full line of pull-type sprayers to the existing Miller pull-type dealer network. Fast offers a comprehensive line of sprayers, including a new 1,000- and 1,250-gallon model, along with units with capacities of 1,800 gallons and 2,400 gallons and boom widths up to 132 feet. These units will be painted Miller red and will carry the new “Miller by Fast” brand. Current Fast dealers will continue to have access to the Fast green and yellow “Fast” branded sprayers.
“With our manufacturing stretched to capacity simply filling the demand our self-propelled sprayers, we needed to maximize our production efficiency,” says John W. Miller, president and CEO of Miller-St. Nazianz. “Being able to partner with Fast -- with a reputation for quality manufacturing and pull type sprayer innovation -- is a win-win-win situation, as our dealers will continue to have seamless access to a full line of trailer sprayers.”
“We are excited to be building a high quality 500-gallon pull-type sprayer, and carrying on the Miller pull-type sprayer legacy,” says Verlyn Fast, president of Fast Distributing. “This opportunity opens up markets for us where we are presently not operating, such as the Eastern seaboard. We are committed to making the transition as seamless as possible for the Miller pull-type sprayer dealers, and hope that there will be opportunities with our other Fast sprayer products with the dealers in the future.”
