Atlantic Tractor, which serves the Mid-Atlantic region, has announced that it will acquire the Finch Services’ John Deere ag and turf and compact construction equipment contracts at three locations: Westminster, Maryland; Hunt Valley, Maryland; and Hanover, Pennsylvania. The acquisition will take effect or about June 1, 2021.
Finch Services reports that it will be consolidating to a John Deere Golf & Sports Turf-only organization. As part of the agreement, Atlantic Tractor will assume the above three retail locations with its John Deere compact construction equipment, agriculture and turf/homeowner contracts. The Eldersburg location will be retained by Finch Services for their golf and sports turf contract with John Deere.
“Over the last 76 years, our business has grown and adapted to meet the ever- changing needs of the markets and customers we serve. Many years ago, our golf and sport turf business became the largest part of our business, as we now cover a geography from Northern Virginia to the Canadian border,” says Ray Finch, president of Finch Services. “We are deeply appreciative of our agricultural roots in Carroll, Baltimore, York and Adams counties, and are excited for those customers to have the support of a larger organization who is focused on their specific needs. This transition and acquisition will strengthen both Atlantic Tractor and Finch Services, allowing us to secure a sustainable future for our customers, employees and stakeholders.”
The three newly acquired locations, says Atlantic Tractor CEO Mel Goldsmith, “will allow Atlantic Tractor to continue to embark on its mission of growth and expansion to ensure a successful and sustainable future for our customers, employees and stakeholders. Combining the employee bases and facilities of these two great legacy companies will make us stronger together and will allow us to provide a seamless transition for our customers as we continue to provide them with excellent products and the exceptional customer service that they have been accustomed to by both Atlantic Tractor and Finch Services.”
