Groff Tractor Acquires Trico Equipment

Case dealer expands territory to include three locations in New Jersey

Groff Tractor & Equipment Inc. has announced the acquisition of Trico Equipment Services LLC, the CASE Construction dealer with three locations in New Jersey. Groff Tractor’s new territory includes three New Jersey facilities, which consist of Vineland, Totowa and Freehold. Now, with the expansion, Groff Tractor has eleven locations in four states.

"Both companies were started in the 1950s and have grown significantly by providing reliable equipment, backed by excellent service,” notes Mike Savastio, president and CEO at Groff Tractor. "And both companies can attribute their success to dedicated employees, loyal customers and support from our manufacturers. We look forward to merging the two companies successfully to assure continued growth.”

Groff Tractor & Equipment has been serving the construction equipment market since 1958 when its first dealership opened in Highspire, Pa., which later moved to Mechanicsburg. Trico Equipment Services began operating in 1952 from a two bay garage in Vineland, NJ. With the addition of the Trico branches, Groff Tractor has six locations throughout central and western Pennsylvania, one in Frederick, Maryland, three in New Jersey, and a rental and service branch in Newcomerstown, Ohio. All of Trico’s dedicated employees are now Groff Tractor employees.

All of the Groff Tractor locations, except Ohio, will feature the full CASE CE equipment line, as well as service departments with state-of-the-art diagnostic and repair equipment, on-site service capabilities and multi-million dollar parts inventories. The CASE Construction line includes backhoe loaders, compact track loaders, compaction equipment, crawler dozers, excavators, forklifts, motor graders, skid steer loaders, tractor loaders, and wheel loaders.

TRICO Equipment Services, LLC will operate as a division of Groff Tractor New Jersey during the transition period.
