Kubota dealership Quality Equipment Sales and Service is currently building a new store in Brainerd, Minn., that is expected to open in August, reports the Brainerd Dispatch.

The 12,000 square foot facility will include a showroom, offices, parts department, 6 service bays and a wash bay. Outside, the store will feature 5 display pads. Quality Equipment will sell the full line of Kubota equipment, including ag equipment, compact tractors, lawn equipment, skid steers, excavators, utility vehicles and more.

According to the newspaper report, General Manager Mike Drazenovich expects the dealership to be open for business as soon as Aug. 1. He wants contractors, the local business community and the general public to know that equipment can be purchased or rented from the company's Shakopee location. A field service technician is now available in the Brainerd lakes area to assist with maintenance needs. Initially, the company will employ eight to 10 people, including mechanics, salespeople, parts and service staff, and general office personnel.

The new Quality Equipment dealership in Brainerd is the third location for Quality's parent company, Quality Forklift Sales and Service. Headquartered in Shakopee with a second location in Ramsey, the company was established in 1981. You can read the complete story here.
