DIXON, Ill. — This June, Prairie State Tractor unveiled plans to expand their Dixon, Ill., location. The expansion project includes a new 9,600 square foot service shop building, dedicated turf and utility service area, and 2,080 square foot wash bay. The tentative completion date is mid-December.
The most notable aspect of the new facility additions will be the state-of-the-art service building featuring 6 service bays, and a 5-ton bridge crane. The new building also opens current space for a new turf and utility equipment service area. The expansion will allow the facility to add additional technicians. All these additions will take place within the Dixon store’s current occupancy at 908 Bloody Gulch Rd. and completed by local contractor MDS Incorporated.
“Servicing the equipment of today’s producers is a critical part of our business,” says Chris Rupiper, CEO of Prairie State Tractor. “This expansion is directly targeted at increasing our capability and capacity to serve all our customer’s equipment needs now and into the future. We believe this investment will build customer’s trust in Prairie State Tractor for equipment purchasing, parts, and service. Many agricultural producers in the Dixon and surrounding areas are using the latest John Deere technology and equipment to maximize returns on their business. We recognize that to continue to support them fully we need to invest in our business with upgraded facilities.”
Our slogan is “Rooted in the Past, Focused on the Future” and this project truly represents it. This facility will help us service our customer’s equipment solutions far into the future, and it is less than 10 miles from Grand Detour where John Deere first laid his roots.
