Little Wonder Makes Monstrous Leap In Debris Management

Little Wonder Makes Monstrous Leap In Debris Management

Schiller Grounds Care, Inc., parent company of Little Wonder, BOB-CAT, Classen, Mantis, Ryan and Steiner brand outdoor power equipment, announced today that the company has entered into a supply agreement with Sound Manufacturing, Inc., manufacturer of Monster® brand truck loaders and collection dump systems. Under the agreement, Sound Manufacturing, a sheet metal fabrication company located in Old Saybrook, CT, will manufacture these product lines exclusively for Little Wonder.

Little Wonder is a long standing brand within the green industry. Established in the early 1900’s as the leader in the commercial hedge trimmer market, today Little Wonder is an industry leading brand of landscaping and debris management equipment with a broad product line that includes hedge trimmers, bed shapers, brush cutters, edgers, wheeled blowers, leaf and debris vacuums and its own line of compact through mid-size truck loaders.

The agreement is a win/win for both companies. The strength of the Little Wonder brand’s domestic and international distribution network will increase production at the Sound Manufacturing facility. For the Little Wonder brand, the addition of large higher horsepower truck loaders expands the brand’s current line offerings and opens up a new product line in dump collection systems to the landscaping, janitorial and industrial markets.

Pat Cappucci, President & COO of Schiller Grounds Care, stated that as a result of this new relationship with Sound Manufacturing, “We will effectively combine the strength of Little Wonder as a leader in debris management products with Monster Power Equipment, who has acquired the expertise of key talent from the original Giant Vac company, a long-standing expert in truck loaders and large debris loaders.”

“Essentially, they get to focus on their expertise, while we focus on ours, which is bringing the industry the best products possible in debris management for landscape, asphalt and grounds care professionals. We are fully committed to the success of our customers, and are confident that the combination of Monster with Little Wonder will give them a line-up unmatched anywhere in the industry”, concluded Cappucci.

Kelli Vallieres, President and CEO of Sound Manufacturing, agrees, “the Monster Power Equipment team is excited to be combining the strengths of our truck loader line-up together with the strong successful history of Little Wonder products. Through this strategic relationship, leaf and debris customers will be provided with quality products backed by industry leading customer service,” she stated.

The new Little Wonder Monster line will include the following products:
• Truck loaders in 14-, 18-, 29-, 35- and 36-HP engine models with a selection of mounting/trailer systems
• Truck collection dump systems will include 5 and 10 yard capacity units

Look for the new Little Wonder Monster line in dealerships nationwide in time for the upcoming fall season.
