Merger Announced For Some Farm Implement Dealerships

Wed 8-22-2018

(Gettysburg, S.D.)-- C & B Operations, LLC, a John Deere dealership headquartered out of Gettysburg, SD is expanding its business base by combining with eight John Deere stores serving southern South Dakota and northern Iowa from Noteboom Implement, LLC. The change is effective immediately.

The company will do business as C & B Operations, LLC in the three store locations in South Dakota (Corsica, Chamberlain and Parkston) and five store locations in Iowa (Sibley, Lake Park, Spencer, Storm Lake, and Ida Grove). C & B plans to retain the current Noteboom employees as part of the merger.

In a statement, Matt Cronin, CEO of C & B Operations, says the merger brings two reputable companies with strong family values together to better serve their customers across the six states they operate in.

Earlier this year, C & B finalized the acquisition of four Montana dealership stores. With the addition of the eight Noteboom Implement stores, C & B will now own 37 stores across six states.

C & B Operations, LLC is owned by the Cronin and Burwell families and now operates in Iowa, South Dakota, Minnesota, Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho. C & B began 30 years ago in 1988, when Dan Cronin and Rod Burwell purchased the John Deere dealership in Gettysburg, South Dakota and has grown to be one of the premier John Deere dealers in the country.
