Troxel Equipment Co. and Tri Green Tractor, two John Deere dealerships in Indiana, have announced plans to merge, creating Troxel Tri Green. The merger will go into effect Sept. 5, 2019, and the company will have 9 total locations.

“The expansion of equipment productivity, coupled with technological advancements, has created amazing growth opportunities for everyone,” said the company in a press release from Aug. 13. “Troxel Tri Green understands the importance of remembering the basics that got us to this point, as well as adapting to remain competitive and relevant in today’s market.”

Troxel Equipment was founded in 1960 and had 3 locations in Northeast Indiana prior to the merger. Along with John Deere, Troxel also carried Stihl, Brent and Honda Power Equipment. In 2017, the dealership completed construction on a new 35,000 square foot facility at their Wabash location. Tri Green Tractor, founded in 2011, was a 6 location dealership in Central Indiana, carrying Stihl, Grasshopper, Ariens and Honda product lines.
