BOTKINS, Ohio — Koenig Equipment Inc., a John Deere ag and turf dealer based in Botkins, Ohio, is acquiring the assets and operations of Smith Implements Inc. With the addition of Smith locations in Bloomington, Franklin, Greenfield, Greensburg, Richmond and Rushville, Ind., Koenig Equipment will have 13 dealership facilities serving customers in southwestern Ohio and southeastern Indiana.
“Koenig shareholders and family are honored that Smith would choose us to serve the customers, geography and employees they have developed over nearly four decades,” said Koenig CEO Aaron Koenig. “In addition, we appreciate the confidence John Deere has shown in Koenig by choosing our dealership to represent their product in this geography.
