BOSTON, Ga. — Ag-Pro Companies, a John Deere dealership, grows to 82 locations across seven states through its recent expansion into the Midwest after three large acquisitions in Ohio encompassing 20 additional locations. These three acquisitions include JD Equipment, Shearer Equipment and Kuester Implement, where Ag-Pro will now serve customers across over three million agricultural acres in Ohio, along with customers in the Columbus and Cleveland MSA.

“All three dealerships have fantastic reputations of providing excellent customer service and knowledge to customers,” said James Groover, Ag-Pro CEO. “Customers can expect to see all of the same familiar faces working in the stores, as well as some new faces who will bring improved processes to the already-successful business.”

JD Equipment first opened in 1982 in Plain City, Ohio, and had since grown into one of the largest dealerships in the Ohio region. The full-service, 10-location dealership serves the local agricultural community, as well as homeowners and commercial or governmental customers with new and used John Deere equipment, parts and service.

Shearer Equipment was started in 1937 in Wooster, Ohio. Throughout its long history, Shearer has had several name changes and acquisitions of their own to become the seven-location dealership it is today. 

Kuester Implement originally opened in 1944 in Wintersville, Ohio, and was family owned and operated for 75 years. Kuester’s three locations bring Ag-Pro into eastern Ohio and the Tri-State Area.

As part of these acquisitions, Ag-Pro now serves several new segments of customers through their John Deere Golf and Turf contract, as well as the newly acquired Generac contract.

Other expansions for Ag-Pro include the acquisition of a dealership location in Boerne, Texas, and two soon-to-open locations to better serve customers in Brunswick, Ga., and Rome, Ga.
