John Deere has appointed two family-owned businesses, Meath Farm Machinery and Agri-Power, as its new dealers for the areas in Ireland previously covered by Johnston Farm Equipment and Eamonn Tinney and Sons.
Established by Peter Timmons at Kilberry near Navan in Co Meath in 1979, Meath Farm Machinery has two additional outlets at Bailieborough in Co Cavan and Kilcock in Co Kildare.
The dealership has announced that it will be relocating the Bailieborough outlet to Poles, Dublin Road, Cavan in January to provide a more central location covering Longford and Leitrim within the newly expanded territory.
Until this new branch opens, all sales, service and parts for John Deere agricultural and homeowner equipment, plus the dealership's other franchises, are being handled by the Bailieborough branch.
The sales team here is led by Pat Kelly, with Tom Dunne, Gerard Markey and Stephen Clarke handling service, and Louise Weldon managing parts.
"Over the past eight years Bailieborough has gained an excellent reputation for the quality of its sales, service and parts support," says Peter Timmons, who is assisted by son Ian and daughter Nicola.
"Our existing team will remain in place at the new outlet and will continue to provide the same first-class service to our new customers in the Longford and Leitrim area."
