Ray Colby & Sons LLC; Gary Colby, owner of G. Ray Colby & Sons; and Jeff Morse, general manager of Chappell Ttractor’s Concord, N.H., store.

Chappell Tractor Sales Inc. announced it has expanded to its third location in New Hampshire, with the absorption of the E. W. Sleeper Company at 391 Loudon Road in Concord, N.H.

E. W. Sleeper Company Inc. will no longer exist and Chappell Tractor will be operating out of the Loudon Road location. There, the company will offer the following brands: Hyundai, Link-Belt, KCM, Takeuchi, Yanmar, Pro-Tech, Felling Trailers, and B-B Chain Products.

Jeff Morse, general manager of E. W. Sleeper, will continue with Chappell Tractor as general manager at this location. According to Chappell, many long-time E. W. Sleeper employees will be retained.

In addition, Chappell Tractor said it will be making changes to the facility, “bringing a new life to the business.” The dealer will be offering a full line of rental equipment from the Concord location, as well.

Pat Colby, owner of G. Ray Colby & Sons, who had been doing business with E.W. Sleeper for more than 20 years, is looking forward to be doing business with Chappell Tractor in Concord. In fact, recently, Colby represented Chappell's first equipment sale out of the Concord facility.

“Chappell Tractor, hands down, has the best reputation in New Hampshire,” Colby said. “I was thrilled to find out that they'd now have a Concord location because it makes it so much easier for someone like me to do business with them. They have a top-notch service department and provide their customers with the best customer service anyone could ask for.”

In 2014, Colby had bought his first piece of equipment from Chappell Tractor — a 2015 Hyundai HL730-9A loader; recently, he purchased a Takeuchi from Chappell in Concord.

“You can call or text their salesmen, and if they tell you they'll have an answer for you in five minutes, you will get an answer in five minutes,” he added. “They're just awesome to work with and they literally work around-the-clock with their customers … I take a lot of comfort in knowing that a lot of the E.W. Sleeper employees will still be working out of Chappell's new Concord store, because they greet you like a friend and neighbor when you walk in the door, and I think a combination of the staff and service is going to be great for the area.”

Chappell Tractor employs more than 90 people and offers a diverse selection of equipment for contractors, municipalities, landscapers, farmers and homeowners.

Chappell Tractor supports the products it sells with parts and service (in house and on-road) and has earned a reputation of taking care of its customers. Its motto is, “You'll Notice The Difference!”

Headquartered in Milford, N.H., and founded as a family farm in 1955, Chappell Tractor also has a location in Brentwood, N.H., as well as the newly acquired Concord facility. A family firm, Chappell Tractor is today led by fourth-generation family members.
