Fernandez Holdings, which owns 57 John Deere ag and turf dealerships in the Northeast and South Central U.S., acquired 14 John Deere Construction & Forestry stores.

Specifically, Fernandez Holdings acquired nine locations from Nortrax in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and New York, and five stores from Schmidt Equipment in Massachusetts.

The business will operate as United Construction & Forestry.

“Fernandez Holdings is excited to be able to expand our relationship with John Deere into the construction and forestry markets,” says Kirk Fernandez, CEO and founder of Fernandez Holdings. “We see incredible opportunity in the Northeast to continue to expand the John Deere brand with a strong organization that is committed to delivering best-in-class equipment, service and support to our customers. Fernandez Holdings will also continue to invest heavily in the region, building new facilities, updating and upgrading operations, and empowering the business to continue to bring on talented, hard-working people to the team.

“This is just the beginning for United Construction & Forestry, and we’re thrilled to support and help drive the organization’s growth in the region,” Fernandez adds.
