Canadian Distributor Announcement

Canadian Distributor Announcement

J & S Performance and Distribution, located at Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, has been appointed to serve the territory of central and eastern Canada.

The family-run automotive repair business, J & S Performance – owned by Scott & Norma Ruttan, has been servicing vehicles in the area since 1999. The company diversified into the turfcare sector in 2002, when they began servicing the community of Niagara on the Lake Parks and Recreation Departments fleet of Hustler mowers.

This developed into a full sales and service operation for Hustler products, then in 2009, Parks Canada, Fort George National Historic Site requested them to start servicing their Spider 2 mower along with the rest of their landscape equipment. This service contract for the Spider resulted in business relationship with Slope Care, the US importer of Spider machines, based in Orlando, Florida.

Following a recent visit by Jason Bristow, Dvorak’s Sales Manager for the Americas, J & S Performance and Distribution Ltd was formed and is now the distributor for Ontario, Alberta, Saskatshewan, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Newfoundland with a dealer network being created to work to distribute Spider across these provinces.

We are delighted to be associated with the Spider products. They are technologically advanced, specialist mowers that overcome the issues of mowing steep banks and slopes. I’m sure we’re going to do a great job selling these machines across our territory.

 — Scott Ruttan, Sales Manager
