A partnership between Whites Group and Frauenfelder will take effect at the end of this month.
The two family-owned businesses are a good match, Whites Group said in a statement.
“It’s satisfying to find a like-minded family-owned business as our rural partner,” said Whites Group’s managing director Peter Kelly in a statement.
“The combination of sales, distribution and manufacturing brought together by this partnership will benefit both resellers and end-users, delivering stronger competition and greater value to the Australian rural market”
Frauenfelder currently employs 19 and expects a further five or six to be created as a result of the partnership.
The partnership begins on March 31.
