Brands Story False
DURING the past month, reports have come to us that at farmers' meetings
charges have been made, sometimes directly and sometimes indirectly, that
this Company has adopted a policy of refusing to supply repair parts for old machines
in order to compel the purchase of new ones. This statement is absolutely false.
Such a policy has never been considered by this Company nor suggested to it.
Ordinarily we ignore such reports, because we have learned that any large
company, no matter how fair and high principled, is subject at all times to unjust
criticism. The facts are this Company has always recognized the importance oi
repair service and has used every effort to make IHC service the best. We believe
we can truthfully say that the repair service furnished wherever this Company's
goods are sold is equal if not superior to that furnished on any manufactured line.
We tall attention to the fact that machinery "Fix-up Weeks," instead of being
something new and originated by the farmers in 1921, as some seem to think,
were really an outgrowth oi the movement started by manufacturers and dealers'
associations in connection with the Council oi National Defense as a war con
servation measure. Perhaps no other agency has done so much to promote
National Repair Weeks" as this Company.
The farmer needs machines which will be efficient and economical If his old
machines can be repaired so as to render efficient and economical service, he
would be foolish to purchase new ones. Whether the farmer utilizes and repairs
his old machines or buys new ones is a question for him to determine. But in
making his decision, we give to every farmer who owns any IHC machines the
assurance that a full stock of repair parts will always be provided by this
Today, our repair stocks on the territory available for the farmers are 21 per
cent greater than ever before at this time of the year. An average of a quarter
million pounds of repairs are shipped from IHC factories for every working
day in the year. Thirty million dollars' worth of repair parts are now ready, as
insurance for the farmer when he needs this service.
In every International Harvester Works manufacturing orders call for repair
parts first and even when furnishing them has meant cutting down production
of new machines for which we had orders, repairs have always had preference.
At every one of our 91 branch houses trained men are on duty to see that all
orders are filled and shipped promptly. Thousands of dealers scattered every
where with an assortment of repairs in stock are always ready and willing to
render every assistance.
This service which this Company has rendered through the years to those who
have purchased its machines has been a matter of great pride to the Company,
and is the foundation of the cordial good-will existing between it and its customers.
We feel it is due the Company and those who have purchased its machines
that we give the widest publicity to the fact that this service of repairs will be
maintained and improved, and that any charges to the contrary are untrue.
