Ohio Ag Equipment announces its intent to acquire the Wyandot County AGCO dealer, Schmidt Machine Company, Ag division, on the target date of Dec. 17, 2018. The acquisition of Schmidt Machine Company’s equipment business will strengthen Ohio Ag Equipment’s ability to service the ag industry by providing customers in central Ohio with an exceptional line of equipment and product support.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed working with one of the longest standing Massey dealers in North America, Schmidt Machine Company,” said Mike Mampieri, General Manager for Ohio Ag Equipment. “They are a talented team, dedicated to providing exceptional customer support. This acquisition strengthens our commitment to be the preferred equipment supplier in Ohio.”
With an anticipated successful closing on Dec. 17, 2018, all equipment sales, parts sales and service will then be conducted out of Ohio Ag Equipment’s Upper Sandusky, Ohio location (1820 E. Wyandot Ave., Upper Sandusky, OH 43351).
“Our customers and their needs are important to us. As we transition out of the agricultural equipment business, we are thankful to be working with Ohio Ag Equipment. Their dedication to superior customer service will only benefit the generations of customers we’ve come to know,” said Joshua Schmidt, GM of Schmidt Machine Company. “As we now focus on our machining and fabricating company and continue on with our 90 year history, we are confident the legacy our family established over four generations ago will be respected and strengthened.”
Ohio Ag Equipment will continue to sell and support Challenger, RoGator, TerraGator, Fendt, Sunflower, White Planters, MacDon, Geringhoff, Unverferth, CLAAS LEXION, and Cat Compact Construction Equipment. With the acquisition of Schmidt Machine Company’s equipment business, Massey Ferguson, Gleaner, and Woods will also be sold and serviced out of this location.
