Groff Tractor & Equipment has purchased the assets of Vernon E. Stup Company in Frederick, Md. The Frederick location allows the company to better service customers in Western Maryland, Northern Virginia and Eastern West Virginia, and will complement the company’s existing footprint in Pennsylvania. This includes branches in Mechanicsburg, Ephrata, State College, New Stanton, Cranberry Township and Ebensburg.
Groff Tractor & Equipment is an authorized full-line dealer of CASE Construction Equipment. The company plans to further develop the Frederick location as a full-service facility that includes an extensive parts inventory, in-shop support and field service. The new location will also expand the availability of CASE rental equipment to customers in the region. Groff Tractor President and CEO Mike Savastio reports that this expansion will include the addition of new technicians, service trucks and advanced parts expediting.
“This location will allow us greater access to our customers who work in Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia, as well as new opportunities with customers formerly serviced by Vernon E. Stup,” says Savastio. “Rental demand continues to grow in the region, and customers here will benefit from greater equipment options and availability.”
“Groff Tractor is an excellent partner and this expansion helps strengthen the CASE Construction Equipment brand in the heart of the Mid-Atlantic States,” says Jim Hasler, vice president, CASE Construction Equipment-North America. “The company understands the importance of service and they take pride in that relationship with their customers. They are clearly making a commitment to their customers in the region with this expansion.”
Terms of the deal were undisclosed. The new Groff Tractor location is located at 5859 Urbana Pike, Frederick, Md.
