United Ag & Turf has opened a new state-of-the-art facility in Greenwich for selling its John Deere, Stihl, Honda and other products that support residential and commercial landscaping, compact construction equipment needs, and area farms.
The facility replaces the Schaghticoke building that served as a John Deere dealership for over 40 years.
The 25,200-square-foot building, located at 217 Route 29 in Greenwich, sits directly next to the Washington County Fairgrounds. It is a full-service store featuring an 11,500-square-foot service department, with 6,000 square feet of warehouse space and a showroom.
“We are extremely excited to have the opportunity to not only expand and better serve customers in the greater Schaghticoke/Easton/Greenwich area, but also provide our excellent team here with the best in facilities and improvements to help them continue to perform at the highest level,” United Ag & Turf president Scott Miller said.
“We’ve seen tremendous growth in recent years and the demand for the quality products and services that United Ag & Turf offers makes this investment in the area a great fit. We look forward to being a part of the community for many more years to come.”
Eric Driscoll, CEO of United Ag & Turf, NE, and United Construction & Forestry, said the company is following this opening with several other new facilities.
“We’re investing heavily in the Northeast to position ourselves to better meet the needs of our customers in this key market. Later this summer we will be unveiling our flagship construction, forestry, agriculture, and turf combination location in Clifton Park,” he said.
“Shortly thereafter, a brand-new East Windsor, Conn., location will be opening, plus we’re busy with several other facility updates and expansions. We believe it’s important to provide our employees with the tools, facilities, and training to perform at their best.
“Our excellent teams coupled with the new state-of-the-art facilities and the new products Deere is bringing to market provides us the foundation to continue to grow our business,” said Driscoll.
United Ag & Turf Regional Director, Neal Opatkiewicz invites customers and the community to stop in and meet his team, tour the new store, and see the new John Deere equipment on display. Opatkiewicz stated, “Our new home is a great new space to work in and we will continue to provide the outstanding service our customers expect. Our entire team has been waiting with anticipation to show-off our beautiful new facility to our customers and to the community.”
