RENSSELAER, Ind. — AGCO Corporation, a global leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of agricultural machinery and precision ag technology, welcomed Plevna Implement’s expansion into western Indiana with its recent announcement that it will purchase MacAllister Machinery’s store in Rensselaer and has committed to opening a fifth Indiana store at a soon-to-be-announced location for coverage across much of the northern half of the state.

All Plevna locations will provide Indiana farmers with full-line sales and service of AGCO’s fast-growing and popular brands, including Fendt and Massey Ferguson.

“AGCO is excited about Plevna’s expansion and growth commitment into western Indiana, as it will ensure top-notch sales and service to the area’s growers and provide them with access to all of AGCO’s innovative, customer-focused brands,” said Ruchir Patel, AGCO vice president of global distribution management.

“Plevna Implement has built solid relationships with Indiana farmers for 80 years, and they’ll bring that same dedication, commitment and service excellence to western Indiana farmers.”

The Plevna team is excited to grow into western Indiana, said Kent Shrock, Plevna Implement’s president and CFO.

“We look forward to serving growers throughout the Rensselaer area,” Shrock said. “As a multi-generational, family-owned dealership, we’ve built trusted relationships with our growers through integrity, customer-focused experiences and service excellence, and those are the values we’ll bring to our new communities.”

AGCO embarked on an ambitious growth plan in North America in 2022, and recent dealership news in Illinois, Idaho, Nebraska, Manitoba and now Indiana are part of that strategy.

The announcement regarding Plevna Implement’s expansion is a key component of AGCO’s plan to meet those goals and deliver access to its well-known products and services to Indiana farmers, Patel said.
