With the acquisition of Shearer Implement’s three dealer locations in Ohio, Ag-Pro Companies has raised its total stores to 82 in seven states. Twenty of the locations are in Ohio and all have been acquired since November 2018. By total locations, Ag-Pro is the largest John Deere dealer in North America, as well as the largest farm equipment dealer in the U.S. and Canada.

Kuester Implement originally opened in 1944 in Wintersville, Ohio, and was family owned and operated for 75 years. Kuester’s three locations — Bloomingdale, St. Clairsville and New Philadelphia — bring Ag-Pro into eastern Ohio and the Tri-State area.

Kuester joins Ag-Pro’s other Ohio dealerships, JD Equipment (10 stores), and Shearer Equipment (7 stores), which were acquired in January 2019.

 As part of these acquisitions, Ag-Pro now serves several new segments of customers through their John Deere Golf and Turf contract, as well as the newly acquired Generac contract.

Other expansions for Ag-Pro include the acquisition of a dealership location in Boerne, Texas, and two soon-to-open locations to better serve customers in Brunswick, Ga., and Rome, Ga.

Headquartered in Boston, Ga., Ag-Pro is the largest John Deere dealer in the U.S. with locations across Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Ohio, South Carolina and Texas. With annual sales of $1.2 Billion, Ag-Pro has 1,750 employees across its 82 full-service locations.
