BLANCHARD EQUIPMENT IS READY TO SERVICE AUGUSTA MARKET
Blanchard Equipment has acquired Augusta Turf and Tractor’s John Deere contract and is excited to serve the Augusta community.
Blanchard Equipment Co., a local John Deere dealer, is excited to announce their new location at 4266 Belair Frontage Road in Augusta. A ‘soft opening’ is planned for Thursday, March 1, 2018 at the new location to provide for the early Spring needs of customers.
As part of the Blanchard network, the new location will be able to offer customers in the CSRA with many added benefits. The 15 store organization, which has operated their corporate office in Augusta for the past seven years, will be able to utilize its vast array of skilled technicians, a large parts and equipment inventory and innovative solutions for all customers segments.
Specifically, small agriculture growers, large property owners, commercial landscapers and residential customers can expect to see an increased number of available small tractors, attachments, lawn mowers, commercial worksite products and handheld power equipment to meet their specific needs. Not only will customers be afforded a unique product portfolio, but they will be provided with excellence in parts and service through extended warranties, seasonal specials and additional value added services.
“We have a clear mission to be the best, not in terms of size, but in the value that we can provide, and we will bring increased value the CSRA,” said Matt McMahon, General Manager. “John Deere has strong ties in the Augusta market with the factory in Grovetown, and we are excited to serve the needs of the area with quality John Deere equipment, exceptional service, and unmatched parts availability. This acquisition is even more personal because not only have we been operating our corporate office and training facility out of Martinez for over seven years, but my wife and I have lived here in Augusta for almost 20 years. It’s where our kids were born. We love Augusta. So, when you see our marketing slogans which begin with “We’re Rooted In…” know that we are truly rooted in the Augusta area, and we are looking forward to supporting the needs of our governmental, small ag, large property, commercial and residential customer needs.”
Some minor renovations and upgrades are currently underway at the new dealership, but Blanchard is dedicated to supplying the needs of the CSRA even during this time. Customers with parts, service and equipment needs can contact Blanchard Equipment at the new location by calling 706.607.8900.
An official Grand Opening will be announced in the coming weeks.
