The new dealership, AgRevolution, will be established by acquiring some assets from Boyd Company of Louisville, Kentucky and will act as a one-stop-solution for agri products and support services
AGCO, a manufacturer of agricultural equipment, has announced plans to establish an agricultural equipment dealership, AgRevolution, to offer products and support services to the farming community across Kentucky and southern Indiana.
AGCO aims to establish the dealership after acquiring certain assets from Boyd Company of Louisville, Kentucky. The new company is expected to begin operations from 1 January 2021.
AGCO, through AgRevolution, intends to operate Boyd’s current dealership locations in Columbia and Mayfield, Kentucky and temporarily share space with the company’s construction equipment locations in Hopkinsville, Kentucky and Evansville, Indiana.
AGCO North America senior vice president and general manager Robert Crain said: “We’re tremendously excited about what AgRevolution will equip AGCO to do for our customers throughout that area and our greater network of dealerships.
“AGCO is building the most vibrant dealership network in North America. AgRevolution will be part of innovative sales and service initiatives and will help equip our larger dealership network with new capabilities that will make them more successful.
“This is a win-win-win for farmers in Kentucky and Indiana, for AGCO, and for our dealers across North America.”
Currently, AgRevolution is also identifying additional locations and building customer-focused staff from current Boyd ag employees and is seeking new team members.
AgRevolution to be led by Stacy Anthony
The new dealership will be led by Stacy Anthony, a veteran in the farm machinery industry. In a career span of 30 years, he has served in several leadership positions in dealerships across the US.
According to the company, AgRevolution will operate like its other independent dealerships.
Boyd Company president and CEO Monty Boyd said: “The Boyd Company has been honoured to serve our ag customers, and we’re very excited that AgRevolution will be providing them uninterrupted customer support throughout this transition.
“Our top priority during this decision was always ensuring that our customers are well taken care of, and AGCO and AgRevolution will do just that.”
