East Tennessee Tractor is new Massey Ferguson Dealer in Athens, TN
April 4th is the Grand Opening date for Massey Ferguson's newest dealer, East Tennessee Tractor. The new dealer provides new and used farm tractors and equipment with an experienced parts and service department.
For more than 160 years, Massey Ferguson has been an innovator in the farm equipment industry. In fact, there are more Massey Ferguson tractors on the job worldwide than any other brand. Today the company is focused on meeting the needs of all consumers, from the professional farmer to the rural lifestyle consumer.
“We are pleased to be associated with a company like East Tennessee Tractor,” says Steve Gorsuch, Massey Ferguson director of livestock, dairy and rural lifestyle product marketing. “We know our customers are serious about the work they are doing, and we encourage them to use our experienced Massey Ferguson dealer network as a trusted information source to choose the right piece of equipment for jobs around their farms and acreages. Because, using the right tools makes a difference in how enjoyable and easy the work will be.”
Massey Ferguson offers several models of sub-compact, compact, utility and mid-range tractors and numerous implements, as well as hay, seeding and tillage equipment, to accomplish a wide variety of jobs. In addition to equipment sales, East Tennessee Tractor will help customers with expert product knowledge, flexible financing programs and high quality parts and service support.
The Massey Ferguson Dealership is owned and operated by Charles R. Floyd of Athens. The business is located between Athens and Niota on Hwy 11N. When asked about the risk of opening a new business in a down economy and struggling farm industry, Mr. Floyd said, “I have been in farming and construction my whole life, this business model will succeed by providing superior services, products, and programs to the local customer.”
