Brandon-based, Mazergroup, has announced plans to purchase Southeastern Farm Equipment in Steinbach.

The deal, expected to be finalized on July 1, will mean that Mazergroup will operate all existing New Holland dealerships in Manitoba.

"All of us at Mazergroup are excited about adding such a reputable dealership to our organization. We look forward to having Corey and Russ Plett join our shareholder group and become valuable members of our sales management team," said Mazergroup president and CEO Bob Mazer in a release.

Southeastern Farm Equipment was established in 1972.

Mazergroup, formerly known as Mazer Implements, was established in 1959 with a single agriculture dealership in Brandon. It is now the largest New Holland dealership complex in North America with now 14 locations across Manitoba and southeastern Saskatchewan.
