We are happy to inform that on the 5th of October 2007 in the ‘family circle of Witraktor’, with a symbolic dedication ceremony, there have been opened the office and warehouse premises Witraktor SIA in Valmiera, Ausekļa street 26.
From now on, this office and the warehouse will function as the long expected support point for our service and customers in Valmiera.
Getting to the Valmiera office is easy – if driving from Riga, you’ll find the Witraktor SIA next to the STATOIL petrol station on Ausekļa street. There is a small equipment show area of 300 m² with new machines displayed by the office and, of course, the traditionally fluttering CAT® flag one would find at any of the Witraktor offices.
Some time has passed since it has been made possible for the customers of Valmiera and Valmiera region to place orders for spare parts and have them received on Ausekļa street 26 in Valmiera. Delivery of spare parts from the Caterpillar® stocks, however, is still effectuated through the Witraktor central stock in Mārupe, nevertheless, the goods from Mārupe are without delay dispatched to Valmiera. If there are no urgent delivery orders, the spare parts are dispatched to Valmiera once a week.
Requests for the service and maintenance works are still to be raised centralized by calling in the Witraktor office in Mārupe (Tel.: +371 67703613) where the coordinator for service works, Mr Kārlis Mankops, will kindly accept requests and schedule appropriate service works on site.
5th of October, at the opening event, the Witraktor Mārupe office team welcomed the Valmiera office team with champagne and some useful stuff for the office, and the present muster celebrated this joyful event by hoisting the flag and flying a hundred of yellow CAT® balloons in Valmiera skies.
We are grateful to everyone supporting and assisting us in arrangement phase for opening of the Office. Special thanks to Kaspars Kārkliņš and Rolands Baldiņš (SIA „Karro”).
We are delighted to come a step closer to you.

Operation of the Valmiera branch office, in the meanwhile, is rather modest, but with a great vision for the future. At present, the customers can order and get the Caterpillar® spare parts, learn to know (where required, also try) the Caterpillar® machines at the show area or have use of the machines rent service (The CAT Rental Store®) and, of course, we aim supporting the existing clients with a spare parts stock and mobile service, identify the potential clientele with regard to tractor-type equipment and maintain close contact with the existing clients.
For the next season 2008, we expect to extend our machines rent park, taking into account the fact that in autumn 2007 demand for the rental services in our region has been higher than initially expected and planned by us. Visiting our customers in Vidzeme we carry out surveys questioning them about the type of other machine units they would be interested to have available in the rent park (such as, mobile compressors, mobile generators, vibratory soil and asphalt compactors, etc.) because we do want to develop our rental service so that all our existing and also would-be customers would be offered a larger range of products.
Finding ourselves closer to the customers of Vidzeme region, we can better understand the present state in the region and, it concludes, that the competitors are certainly awake and there is still much work to be done in the Vidzeme region. There are lot of people not knowing about our presence in Valmiera, yet, for the fact that we haven’t carried out any special advertising campaigns. Especially the younger Witraktor clients wonder hearing that there is a Witraktor office also in Valmiera, now. Also the potential customers who have not been made aware by us about the fact, still, rely more on the previously available information and keep on calling to the Witraktor office in Mārupe, although they find themselves at just some km distance from us.
Therefore, hereby, we would like everybody to know that our office is located close to the main street – Rīgas iela - and all the existing and prospective clients of SIA „Witraktor” in Valmiera and Vidzeme region are kindly welcome.
