Quebec, CA - Founded as a small, family owned and operated farm equipment business in 1952 and originally incorporated as Louida Payeur Inc., Payeur Distributions today is the continuation of this family owned and operated business, having incorporated under its new name in 1983. True to their roots, the company continues to be run on a day-to-day basis by a dedicated group of 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation family members whose mission is to uphold the traditional values that have made the company successful.
Shortly after the company’s incorporation under its current name, Payeur Distributions Inc., the company began expanding the product lines they offered. One of their first and longest standing partnerships was the one established in 1985 with KIOTI Tractor a Division of Daedong-USA, Inc. By bringing this powerful, high-quality tractor line into their dealership, the company quickly realized a large percentage of growth.
Payeur’s traditional customer base consisted of large farms looking for high horsepower, production oriented tractors. KIOTI’s full line of 22 – 90hp tractors were more suited for utility work in and around farms, hobby farms and a variety of other smaller scale operations. Bringing in this versatile line of tractors helped expand the markets pursued, including homeowners and smaller farms with as little as 5 acres of property.
To further enhance the company’s growth, additional product lines were added in the early 90′s to complement the KIOTI line, including chippers, log splitters, trailers and forestry equipment.
“We take great pride in the company our family has built over the years,” states Anne Payeur. “Our approach to business has always been customer focused. We believe that this attentive approach to customers is what has led to the significant customer loyalty we see across our customer base. We are extremely proud of this in a day and age when customer loyalty is hard to come by.”
At Payeur Distributions, all employees strive to deliver a premier customer experience. This starts the minute a customer walks in the door and continues throughout the course of the relationship, with dedicated attention to the original equipment sale, as well as to the maintenance, parts and service support over the machine’s lifecycle. The company’s mission of continuous improvement has really paid off.
As the #1 selling KIOTI dealer in Canada, Payeur Distributions has realized significant and steady growth since originally partnering with KIOTI in 1985. Today they sell on average 160 tractors per year, a 400% increase in the number to KIOTI tractors sold just 10 years ago. Payeur’s strong record of sales earned them KIOTI’s coveted Million Dollar Dealer award for the 6th time in 2011.
Key to Payeur Distributions success with the line is their exclusive dedication to a single brand tractor. “Many dealers opt to carry more than one tractor brand,” state Payeur. “We made the conscious decision to carry only one brand and focus all our attention on successfully selling that brand. We feel that if we carry a quality product that people can depend on and service it well, that we have a winning combination. We have that with KIOTI. The sales increase we’ve realized supports that.”
Continuing to build upon their accomplishments with KIOTI tractors, Payeur recently added the KIOTI MECHRON UTV, The Ultimate Transport Vehicle and the KIOTI CS2410 subcompact tractor to their equipment offerings. The company’s dedication to KIOTI products has allowed them to increase their market share by building a strong following and desire for KIOTI products throughout Quebec.
Payeur Distributions currently has 4 branch locations and more than 30 employees, all of whom are trained to maintain the superior level of customer service that is indicative of the company. Each location offers sales, parts and service; with the ability to design, modify and assemble any of the equipment they have in stock to meet a customers’ specific needs. In addition, mobile service units are available for customers who prefer convenient, on-location routine maintenance, diagnosis or repair of their equipment.
