The Brandt Group of Companies announced it has completed acquiring the assets of Masterton, New Zealand-based Wairarapa Machinery Services, effective August 31, 2023.

Brandt CEO Shaun Semple says the acquisition will unite New Zealand's entire North Island under one dealer brand for agriculture, construction and forestry equipment. “This will ensure customers have access to the industry’s broadest support infrastructure, delivering the products, parts and service they need, wherever they are operating.”

This acquisition marks 139 dealerships owned and operated across New Zealand, Australia and Canada by Brandt, a private, family-owned business headquartered in Regina, Sask. The deal follows the company’s acquisition of New Zealand's Agrowquip in late January 2023. In addition to gaining the distribution rights for the John Deere Agricultural and Golf lines in Agrowquip’s operational area, Brandt says that deal gave Brandt the exclusive rights to sell and service John Deere Construction & Forestry equipment across the entire North Island. Adding the Wairarapa location in Masterton will immediately provide Brandt’s Construction & Forestry customers across the Greater Wellington region with improved access to parts and service, the company says.
