INTERCOURSE, Penn./ASHLAND, Virg., June 5, 2013 — Hoober, Inc., an agricultural equipment dealer with locations in Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland, officially opened two locations in Virginia on June 1 with the conversion of the former Cavalier International stores in Ashland, VA and Wakefield, VA to Hoober, Inc. locations.
Hoober, Inc. had previously announced the family-owned dealership had an agreement to acquire the assets of Cavalier International and that acquisition was completed at the close of business on May 31.
“It’s great to be open for business in Virginia,” said Chuck Hoober of Hoober, Inc. “I think customers are going to benefit from the additional resources we are able to provide to the Virginia stores, whether it’s parts and service support, new and used equipment options, or precision farming technology and expertise. One thing that won’t change is our commitment to providing outstanding service. Hoober, Inc. was founded on that commitment back in 1941, it continues today, and it’s something Cavalier had as part of its culture as well. We look forward to building on their success.”
In Hoober’s Ashland and Wakefield locations there will be several familiar faces customers have come to know over the years with a number of former Cavalier International employees now part of Hoober’s local management team.
Will Brown is the Service Manager at Ashland, Bill Cridlin is the Ag Sales Manager for Ashland and Wakefield, Dawn Ball is the Office Manager at Ashland, Darrell Sims is the Kubota Sales Manager at Ashland, Joe Vitek is the Parts Manager at Ashland, and Wayne Thomas is the Store and Parts Manager at Wakefield.
“We’re really pleased with the management team we have in place in Ashland and Wakefield and the leadership they provide,” said Mike Null, who oversees Hoober, Inc. operations in Virginia, Delaware and Maryland. “I know they’re excited about the opportunity and we’re happy to have them as part of our team in Virginia. We’re also very happy that the overwhelming majority of Cavalier employees are now part of the Hoober team as well. They know the region, they know the customers, and they will continue to focus on delivering the kind of service and support our customers deserve.”
