Linder Industrial Machinery has acquired Franz Tractor Company, a full-service Kubota dealer in Bradenton, Fla. Franz Tractor Company has a rich history of providing quality equipment in the Bradenton area.

Founded in 1965, the storefront started off with Case and Bobcat equipment, then later added the Massey Ferguson Equipment line. In 1988, Franz became a full-service Kubota dealer.

Under the leadership of Branch Manager Peggy Franz, Franz Tractor Company continues to provide a full line of Kubota products, as well as Land Pride equipment.

"We are very excited to grow the Linder brand and expand into the agriculture industry," said John Coughlin, Linder's president and CEO.

This is Linder's second Kubota storefront. In July 2018, Linder Turf & Tractor opened its' first location in Burlington, N.C.
