Murray, Ky. — Hutson Inc., a multi-state John Deere dealership announced another Michigan acquisition, Sell’s Equipment located in Woodhaven, Mich. This dealership is in the southeastern part of the state, 15 miles south of Detroit.
Sell’s Equipment started as a mechanic shop servicing the nation’s Ford Model T boom of the twenties in 1923. They survived the depression just in time to begin selling Ford tractors in 1940. By December 1941 manufacturers shifted focus to production for the war, but through ingenuity and dedication to the community, Sell’s equipment was ready for the agricultural and construction boom that followed the war.
Jeff Geftos and wife, Cindy, purchased Sell’s Equipment 26 years ago and continued the 75 years of history by evolving with the times and dedication to the customers and community they serve. After 100 years in business, more changes and improvements are in-store for the Woodhaven market with its recent acquisition by Hutson Inc. Hutson is committed to leveraging its economies of scale that’s supported by 31 locations spread across Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee and Michigan to ensure they create the ultimate value proposition for our customers.
“We are eager to bring our company's culture, values, and high level of service and precision ag to a new market and meet new customers, Acquiring Sells allow us to continue our aggressive growth strategy to expand our footprint in the great state of Michigan. As always, we’re looking forward to providing our loyal customers the excellent customer service they’ve come to expect.” stated Josh Waggener, President & Chief Executive Officer of Hutson Inc.
