WILTON, Maine — CDL today opened its eleventh superstore in the U.S., along busy Route 2 in central Maine.
Maine Gov. Paul LaPage, state Rep. Russell Black and other dignitaries were on hand for a "tubing cutting" opening ceremony.
The CDL superstore, which is hosting a grand opening sale this weekend, will provide customers with a complete inventory and have maple experts in place.
Barbecue lunch, special discounts on products and equipment and more will be available during its two-day grand opening event, starting today.
The new 4,000-square-foot store, located at 319, US Route 2, will provide customer support and full sugaring equipment inventory.
"We are excited to provide the sugarmakers of Maine a store like this, something they've never seen before," said Miguel Ibarguen, the store's operator and sales manager. Ibarguen is an 8,000-tap sugarmaker and worked three years to get the new store open. He is supported by Tom Patterson, regional manager.
Both have countless years of experience in the industry and have the ultimate goal to help producers increase their profitability, the company said.
“Our whole team is ready to provide the kind of service that nobody has provided before. From large to small producers, we are able to serve and provide everything they need,” Ibarguen said.
“This eleventh CDL corporate superstore was essential for our clients in this area and the growing market. CDL is dedicated to offer the very best. We have now the perfect installation and location in Maine, and all supported by a very solid team of experts that are ready to give an unmatched level of service,” said Martin Chabot, general manager of CDL USA.
CDL is a completely integrated family-owned company that develops, manufactures and distributes maple sugaring equipment.
CDL is today recognized as a world leader in the development and innovation of the necessary equipment for maple syrup production and the transformation of maple products. Innovation is CDL’s mission.
CDL’s strength lies in the results of the expertise, dedication and professionalism of all its employees, the company says.
All of CDL’s teams are constantly working in the development of new high performance products and technologies to improve the situation of the maple syrup producers, from the small producers to the largest ones, the company says.
