TYM Merger FAQs for Branson tractor owners
As a company that’s steadily evolved over the years, we at TYM know that changes can be exciting, but they can also raise many questions. We also know that many of our valued customers have questions now that our 2016 acquisition of Branson (Kukje Machinery) has culminated in the integration of the two brands.
To help answer some of your biggest questions about the future of your Branson tractor, we tapped into our dedicated customer service team for some insight. What’s on the minds of Kukje Machinery owners now? What are some major changes they can expect? And what won’t change? Here are some of our most frequently asked questions following the integration of the TYM and Branson brands.
Will the Branson name still exist?
The Branson tractor brand and name will be fully consolidated to TYM on January 1, 2023, but the Branson product lineup will remain the same. You can already see the full range and lineup of tractors on the TYM product page.
Does this integration affect product prices?
No, the pricing structure remains the same. Likewise, any outstanding orders or service requests will be fulfilled as planned.
Does this mean that TYM parts will now work for Branson too?
As it stands now, Branson parts are compatible with Branson tractors and TYM parts are compatible with TYM tractors. With that said, you may see more integration between the two product lines in the future.
Will there be changes to the quality of Branson tractors?
Branson tractors will remain the same tractors you know and trust. This acquisition means you will have access to expanded customer support and parts services, and an even bigger product line to choose from.
Where should I go to get help and support?
For now you can continue to visit your Branson dealer or distributor. And soon, you will be able to buy and request services for Branson tractors at all TYM dealerships.
What does this mean for my current service and warranty?
Your current service and warranty will remain the same. Your services continue to be logged, processed, and updated the same way.
What are some major changes I can expect?
With the integration of TYM and Branson tractors, you can expect to see network expansion, better customer services, increased supply of parts and more product options.
