The friendliest border in the world hopefully will be a strong market for two John Deere equipment stores.
Nortrax, North America's biggest dealer of construction and forestry equipment, last week opened stores in Fort Kent, Maine and Gouverneur, New York as they intend to develop markets in the U.S. and Canada, according to a published report.
"Our valued customers in this region of Maine will be provided with the unmatched customer service and knowledge Nortrax is known for," according to Dave Porter, parts manager for the Maine store. "We are looking forward to building long-lasting relationships and providing the top-notch service that comes with owning a John Deere machine."
Porter's counterpart in New York said he and the staff look forward to blending strong customer service with selling quality equipment. The Gouverneur store actually re-opened in the same site that hosted a Nortrax until 2001.
"Many of our customers have remained loyal to Nortrax and John Deere," said Tim Irish, parts manager for the store in New York. "Hats are off to them for sticking with us. We're happy to be back, and the experience we've brought to this facility shows that we are committed to the best customer service in the industry."
