J D Equipment, of London, Ohio, has announced they will be expanding to their eighth John Deere store in Zanesville, Ohio. J D Equipment has worked with Finton Equipment to purchase their existing store in Zanesville, and became the new owners effective March 19, 2012. Due to John Deere’s dealership realignment, Finton Equipment will close their John Deere store in Coshocton, Ohio on the same date.

The new J D Equipment store sells agricultural, commercial and consumer equipment, offering products and services for farmers, commercial mowers, construction customers and homeowners. They sell and service multiple product lines including John Deere, Honda, Stihl, Generac and many more.

Finton Equipment has had had its doors open for over 45 years, with their home and base in Coshocton. Their decision to sell to J D Equipment was based upon J D’s ability and commitment to continue to serve the entire Finton customer base in Zanesville and Coshocton while only have facilities in Zanesville. Kevin and Kent Finton, along with most of the current staff from Finton Equipment joined the J D Equipment team on March 19 when J D opens for business.

J D Equipment is a family-owned business, founded in Plain City, Ohio in 1982. During the past 30 years, they have grown to become Ohio’s largest John Deere dealer, with eight locations and more than 220 employees. They pride themselves on their excellent customer service, wide range of products and parts, and convenient availability of parts onsite.

J D Equipment will be holding a spring Open House to celebrate their addition to the community on Friday, April 13 and Saturday, April 14. The Open House will be held at the Zanesville store, located at 4394 Northpointe Drive, Zanesville, OH 43701, and is open to the community.
