New John Deere dealer in the west
John Deere dealer Templetuohy Farm Machinery Ltd (TFM) is taking over the north west of Ireland trading area, providing full sales, service and support in Galway, Roscommon, Sligo and Mayo.
Details are still to be confirmed, but TFM is planning to locate a new outlet in Tuam.
Established in 1982 by brothers Jimmy and Joseph Butler, TFM currently has five outlets: Thurles and Clonmel in Co Tipperary, Enniscorthy in Co Wexford, Portlaoise in Co Laois and Ballycallan in Co Kilkenny.
The deal means TFM will become one of the biggest farm machinery dealers in the country.
In addition to John Deere's full line of agricultural equipment, the company also offers a hire fleet service across the whole of its trading area.
Until the new outlet is open for business and new staff are employed, TFM will provide guaranteed next day parts delivery from its existing network. "With 33 years of experience, our aim is to continue to offer the same first class values and customer service levels that we have established over many years of business in Ireland," says TFM dealer principal Jimmy Butler.
"We employ sales and service specialists in all the main John Deere product lines, including tractors, combines, green crop equipment, sprayers and AMS FarmSight precision farming systems, as well as support programmes such as PowerGard maintenance and protection.
