Deere/Hitachi dealer Martin Equipment of Illinois has broken ground for a new facility in Columbia, Missouri. The 21,000-square-foot building is expected to be completed in February 2022, with the full-service facility open to the public by the spring of 2022.
The Columbia location, being built by Vissering Construction, Streator, Illinois, will be more than triple the size of Martin's current 6,500-square-foot space in Ashland, Missouri. The facility will have eight service bays with large-capacity cranes to accommodate production-class equipment. It will also increase the in-stock parts capacity by at least 300%, the company says.
“Our customers deserve a dealer that partners with them and their iron in a big way,” says DeLene Martin Bane, Martin Equipment president. “We are proud of and offer some of the best service, sales, and support in the entire area, and now our new state-of-the-art facility will match our employees’ extensive capabilities."
Martin Equipment is a fourth generation, family-owned dealer headquartered in Goodfield, Illinois, with 200 employees and 10 locations across Iowa, Illinois and Missouri. The firm started in 1928 as Sam F. Martin Equipment in Roanoke, Illinois.
