John Deere and dealer Netherton Tractors Ltd have announced plans to establish a new agricultural and homeowner equipment dealership outlet in the Perth and Kinross area of Scotland.

Established in 1987, Netherton Tractors has two existing outlets at Forfar in Angus and Glenrothes in Fife. The new premises at Units M-P, Arran Road just north of Perth are situated close to the A9 and offer modern, purpose-built office, storage and workshop facilities.

“I am very pleased to announce this expansion by one of our key Scottish dealerships,” says John Deere Limited division sales manager Chris Meacock. “The business has established a reputation for excellent customer service and support, and this latest investment will enable Netherton Tractors to further meet customer demand for John Deere’s advanced product range and the latest precision ag technology.”

Netherton’s general manager Garry Smith adds: “We are very much looking forward to expanding our business to cover this newly extended trading area, and have already recruited a number of experienced staff in preparation for our opening.

“We specialise in all the main John Deere agricultural product lines, including tractors, harvesting equipment, sprayers, Gator utility vehicles and precision ag systems, as well as programmes such as PowerGard maintenance and protection, Expert Check and John Deere Connected Support. As a group we are committed to delivering the best possible machinery sales and service support to existing and new customers.”

In addition to John Deere equipment, the group’s other franchises include Kramer, Kverneland, Dewulf, Bailey, HEVA, Bunning, Opico and Nugent.
