REGINA, Saskatchewan — Redhead Equipment, one of Saskatchewan’s largest equipment dealers, has continued its investment in the province with the recent acquisition of Moker & Thompson, a Case IH dealer with two locations in Northeast Saskatchewan. Effective November 1, 2014, this deal gives Redhead Equipment seven provincial locations: Estevan, Lloydminster, Melfort, Prince Albert, Regina, Saskatoon and Swift Current. All locations are Case IH dealers, with the exception of the Regina branch.
As the agriculture industry continued to evolve, Gord Thompson, along with his fellow owners at Moker & Thompson, Alan Weenk and Arron McLean, were looking for an opportunity to expand their business to meet the increasing needs of their customers. In Redhead Equipment, they found a company that not only shared their same values, but allowed them to become the one stop solution for all their customers’ heavy duty equipment needs.
“This is a great opportunity for everyone involved,” said Gord Thompson. “Not only will being part of Redhead Equipment enable us to provide our customers complimentary equipment lines, but with all of our employees retaining their current roles, we’ll be able to offer an enhanced level of service to them as well.”
Redhead Equipment has been an active member of the Saskatchewan landscape for over 65 years. Focused on the sales, parts, service and financing of trucks, trailers, agriculture, construction and forestry equipment, this privately-owned and operated heavy equipment dealership has steadily expanded over the years alongside the industries they serve.
Gary Redhead, president and CEO of Redhead Equipment, said the new staff and locations are a welcome addition to the Redhead Equipment team. “Moker & Thompson was a top-notch dealership, with a dedicated and experienced team and an equally loyal customer-base. By adding their regional agriculture expertise to our existing footprint, we’ve enhanced our industry presence and expanded our service capability to our customers across the province.”
It’s this commitment to growing within Saskatchewan that resonated with Thompson. “Despite their tremendous success, Redhead Equipment’s corporate culture is still focused on giving back to the community and creating personal relationships with their customers and staff. We’re excited to join forces and continue this growth together.”
The new Redhead Equipment branches will remain in their current locations at 3802 4th Avenue East in Prince Albert and 2420 Saskatchewan Drive South in Melfort.
