Omaha, Neb. — Claas dealership GJ’s Farm Equipment has announced several changes to their southwest Ontario location. The full service dealership will be changing their name to “GJ’s Harvest Centre Inc.” and will expand their Claas business focus. To accommodate the growth targets, GJ’s will nearly double in size — adding an additional 7,500 square feet to the current facility.
“Just 3 years after opening, in 2003, we began our partnership with Claas after picking up the hay tool line. Now, 17 years later, we couldn’t be more excited to expand our business even further with the premium brand of Claas products,” says Gary Klyn, founder of GJ’s Farm Equipment, now GJ’s Harvest Centre Inc. “With the expansion brings a new name change, which will better represent us as a focused dealer for Claas. Claas is a world-class company committed to expanding their business in southwest Ontario and we are thrilled to grow with them.”
GJ’s began as a repair shop in 2000 by Gary and his wife, Corrie. Since then, their customer commitment has expanded to include the sale of new and used equipment as well as exceptional parts and service departments. The facility’s expansion will allow them to continue providing top-of-the-line, dependable equipment for their current and future customer base.
“GJ’s Harvest Centre Inc. represents what it means to be a committed Claas dealer, and we are excited about their upcoming expansion,” said Eric Raby, president and general manager – sales, Claas of America. “The southwest Ontario region remains an important market for Claas, and with the new and improved facility, we are able to continue our growth and expand our brand’s reach in the area. This is a direct reflection of the hard work and relationships GJ’s has built with their growers.”
