RDO Equipment Co.’s newest location in McKinney, Texas, opened its doors for an Open House event on May 21.

The event featured RDO Equipment Co. leadership, employees from many of the organization’s Texas stores, customers, McKinney mayor, city manager, city officials, manufacturing partner representatives and community members.

The event included tours of the 38,000 sq. ft. facility, product displays, lunch, and prizes and giveaways (including John Deere safes and Yeti coolers). Members of the McKinney Chamber of Commerce also were on hand for a ribbon cutting ceremony.

The new McKinney store, with roughly 25 team members, is the 7th RDO Equipment Co. location in Texas and complements the current Fort Worth and Irving locations.

“We had a great event and appreciate all of the hard work and effort that ensured its success,” said Jim Carell, general manager. “Customers and community members continue to be impressed with the reinvestment that RDO Equipment Co. has shown in the north Texas community. We were proud to show everyone our new store.”
