Gettysburg, S.D. — C&B Operations LLC, a John Deere dealership headquartered out of Gettysburg, S.D., is expanding its business base by combining with 8 John Deere stores serving southern South Dakota and northern Iowa from Noteboom Implement LLC. The change is effective immediately.

The company will do business as C&B Operations in the 3 store locations in South Dakota (Corsica, Chamberlain and Parkston) and 5 store locations in Iowa (Sibley, Lake Park, Spencer, Storm Lake and Ida Grove). C&B plans to retain the current Noteboom employees as part of the merger.   

With the expanding footprint, C&B is able to bring even more value to each of its customers. “This decision brings two reputable companies with strong family values together to better serve our customers across the 6 states we operate in.” said Matt Cronin, CEO, C&B. “The Noteboom Implement group is a great fit with us. Both companies are made up of experienced and knowledgeable teams focused on supporting our customers in improving agriculture production. We are thrilled to have the Noteboom Implement organization joining our team.”

Earlier this year, C&B finalized the acquisition of 4 northeast Montana dealership stores from Farm Equipment Sales in Circle, Culbertson, Plentywood and Glasgow. With the addition of the 8 Noteboom Implement stores, C&B will now own 37 stores across 6 states.

C&B Operations is owned by the Cronin and Burwell families and now operates in Iowa, South Dakota, Minnesota, Montana, Wyoming and Idaho. C&B began 30 years ago in 1988, when Dan Cronin and Rod Burwell purchased the John Deere dealership in Gettysburg, S.D., and has grown to be one of the premier John Deere dealers in the country.
