Sukup Manufacturing Denies Responsibility in Farmers' Claims Former Dealer Defrauded Them

Sukup Manufacturing Denies Responsibility in Farmers' Claims Former Dealer Defrauded Them Last week, Oklahoma Farm Report reported that multiple Oklahoma farmers were defrauded out of thousands of dollars by an authorized Sukup Manufacturing dealer, who allegedy took the farmers' money but never delivered the grain bins that had been purchased. Oklahoma Farm Report spoke with one of the victims, Cody Sloan, who remarked that no effort had been made by Sukup Manufacturing to rectify his complaint against Salt Fork Grain, the Alva, Okla. dealer he conducted his business with. Salt Fork Grains did not respond to Oklahoma Farm Report's inquiries about the case, however Sukup Manufacturing offered the following statement after the original story was published.

"Stating that Sukup Manufacturing Co. was 'unwilling to reimburse' the parties’ down payment is simply inaccurate. Sukup has not received any form of payment for the products in this case, and never required a down payment for the products. The parties’ contract is with Salt Fork Grain, an independent business. Salt Fork Grain does not represent Sukup Manufacturing, and Sukup Manufacturing is not a party to the contract.

"It is also factually inaccurate that Sukup '(has) not done anything.' The parties themselves have discussed in detail how they spoke with the owners of the company multiple times. The Sukup territory manager visited the parties’ site on two occasions. The reality is that Sukup put forward numerous solutions to resolve the issue, which the parties did not accept. Stating that Sukup took no action is false."

It appears that Salt Fork Grain is no longer affiliated with Sukup Manufacturing, as it has been removed from the Sukup Manufacturing website's dealer locator.
