Statement issued Thursday:
The Kenn-Feld Group, LLC and Liechty Farm Equipment, Inc. announced the combination of their organizations effective November 1, 2011.
“We are excited to combine with Liechty Farm Equipment to form one of the largest John Deere dealerships in Ohio and Indiana”, said Tom Burenga, General Manager. “Our scale will give our customers additional access to equipment, parts, and expertise with precision farming.”
Kenn-Feld Group operates three locations: Lefeld Implement of Coldwater, OH; Kennedy-Kuhn of Van Wert, OH; and East Allen Ag and Turf, of Woodburn, IN.
Liechty Farm Equipment operates seven locations. Four full service John Deere Agriculture dealerships in Ohio: Archbold, Edgerton, Napoleon, and Paulding. The other three locations are primarily involved in rental and John Deere consumer products. The two locations in Wauseon and Archbold, Ohio operate as Brush Creek Sales & Rental, while the Angola, IN location operates as Hal-Mark Sales & Rental.
All of the locations will continue to operate under their current name.
“The combination of Liechty Farm Equipment and Kenn-Feld Group offers our organizations a unique opportunity to assemble a single organization that can be more efficient, more customer focused and more value driven than the two organizations separately” stated Chris Liechty, Rental Operations Manager. “We are very excited to implement the integration process over the coming weeks and months.”
The focus of the combined organization will continue to be working to understand the needs of our customers and assist them in solving their operational problems, whether they are involved in agriculture, construction, professional landscaping, or their own residential landscape maintenance.
