Empire Tractor announced last week that it has acquired Syracuse Kubota. Empire Tractor will continue to sell and service Kubota and other selected equipment from the current Syracuse Kubota location on Erie Boulevard.
The deal has been finalized.
Syracuse Kubota was started by Rick and Marybeth Petrell after they purchased Beachy Equipment in April of 2004. With the addition of Kubota and Jon Enright as general manager, the business expanded, quadrupled.
As Empire Tractor looks to spread its footprint across New York state, they see the Syracuse location as a strategic fit.
"We are excited to have Syracuse Kubota join our company," said Tim Call, president of Empire Tractor. "The Petrells have done an exceptional job of growing Kubota sales in the Syracuse region. They have established an experienced staff that offers exceptional customer service much like that of Empire Tractor."
Empire Tractor, established in 2000, now operates six dealerships in Atlanta, Batavia, Cortland, Cazenovia and Waterloo and now its their newest location in Syracuse.
