Replacing HRN Tractors again

Following last month’s announcement that John Deere dealer Netherton Tractors Ltd is to establish a new agricultural and homeowner equipment outlet in the Perth and Kinross area, a further expansion of the dealership’s territory is now being planned.

As of November 1, 2020, the dealership will also operate from two new outlets in Turriff, Aberdeenshire and Nairn, Highland, replacing HRN Tractors Ltd in those areas. HRN's Balbeggie outlet was previously announced as losing out to Netherton's expansion in the Perth and Kinross area.

This will bring the total number of Netherton group branches to five, including the two established businesses at Forfar in Angus and Glenrothes in Fife.

When asked by Service Dealer if John Deere is planning on leaving their franchise with any of the remaining HRN outlets, an official spokesperson said, "John Deere is not making any further comment on this announcement at this time."

In an official statement, John Deere Limited division sales manager Chris Meacock, said, "Since Netherton Tractors joined the John Deere agricultural dealer network in 1987, it has grown the business to become one of our best performing dealerships.

“It is well known and appreciated for delivering a very high standard of customer service and support. We are therefore delighted that this latest expansion into the north of Scotland will enhance the customer experience of our advanced technology product range.”

Netherton’s general manager Garry Smith added, “This latest expansion into the north of the country represents another considerable investment in our business, and we very much look forward to establishing a positive presence in the region as soon as possible.

“We are proud of our reputation for delivering top quality after-sales and service support to our customers, across the full range of John Deere agricultural and homeowner equipment as well as our other key franchises. We are actively seeking suitable premises in the Turriff and Nairn areas and will be looking to recruit new and experienced staff to meet the same high standards.”

John Deere say further details of the new Netherton Tractors outlets will be provided in due course.
