In what has become a holiday tradition for Ohio's contractors, landscape professionals and municipal maintenance crews, Murphy Tractor & Equipment Co. Inc. held a round of Holiday Open House events at six of its branch locations in Ohio.
Festivities kicked off Nov. 30 at the Painesville location, and more followed at the dealership's Brunswick and Cincinnati facilities on Dec. 7 and its Canton, Poland and Vandalia locations on Dec. 14.
The open houses are a way to thank valued Murphy Tractor & Equipment customers and catch up with them in a relaxed setting. Guests were treated to lunch and door prizes, and a full contingent of Murphy Tractor & Equipment personnel was on hand to welcome customers and talk about their lineup of John Deere equipment. Representatives from NPK also stopped in at several events to meet with customers and discuss their company's equipment.
Founded in 1982 and headquartered in Wichita, Kan., the dealership maintains branch locations in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. Murphy Tractor & Equipment Co. Inc. is one of John Deere's largest North American construction equipment dealerships. Throughout its multistate territory, the company also represents a number of allied equipment lines.
In Ohio, in addition to John Deere equipment, it also offers equipment from Allu, Eager Beaver Trailers, Harlo, Hitachi, NPK Hydraulic Tools, Peterson Pacific, Road Hog, Sakai, Sennebogen and others.
