Peterson has entered into an agreement to sell our ag business to Holt Ag Solutions; the sale is expected to close December 16, 2019. We appreciate the trust and loyalty you have given us through the years and want to personally assure you that Holt Ag Solutions, your new partners in the ag business, will deliver the same top-notch customer experience you’ve come to expect.
This sale will include our Willows and Albany stores and all AGCO and CLAAS inventory, tooling, service trucks, and ag parts. Randy Grimes, former GM of Peterson’s ag division, will continue in that role for Holt Ag Solutions in Oregon. All Peterson ag employees will immediately be offered jobs at Holt Ag Solutions.
This sale will be good for your business. Holt Ag Solutions is an ag dealer with decades of commitment to the industry. This acquisition will allow them to expand their footprint into Oregon and offer you more products, expertise, and coverage. This is a good strategic long-term move for everyone involved.
After the sale, Peterson will continue to provide you new and used Cat machines, genuine Cat parts, service, and rentals. Peterson’s SITECH division will continue to be your source for cutting-edge technology products from Trimble. Our goal is to continue supporting your Cat equipment for years to come.
Holt Ag Solutions’ parent company, Holt of California, has been family-owned and operated since 1931. Prior to this acquisition, the company served Northern California’s Central Valley from locations in Merced, Salida, Woodland, Willows, and Richvale. Holt represents the AGCO, CLAAS, and Kubota brands of farming equipment along with leading manufacturers of implements. Eric Williamson is the vice-president responsible for Holt Ag Solutions.
