McMinnville – H&R Agri-Power has acquired McMinnville’s Kubota of McMinnville. The Warren County location will be H&R Agri-Power’s 20th location and seventh in Tennessee. According to a release by H&R Agripower, “the dealership will operate as H&R Agri-Power Farm & Turf and offer the same great customer service and product lines that have been provided in the past.”
The location carries a full range of turf, agricultural and construction products including Kubota, Landpride, Hustler Turf and Echo.
“We are thrilled to welcome Kubota of McMinnville to the H&R Agri-Power family,” said Steve Hunt, President of H&R Agri-Power. “This acquisition aligns perfectly with our strategic plan to expand our offerings in the Tennessee market and provide the best possible products and services to our customers. We look forward to working with the talented team at Kubota of McMinnville to continue delivering excellent results to our customers.” This will be our second Farm & Turf location which is a division of H&R Agri-Power.
Kubota of McMinnville was established in 2011 as One County Kubota by the Woodlee family. In 2012, David Woodlee purchased the dealership from his family and began operating as Tennessee Valley Tractor. Under David’s leadership, the dealership quickly became known for its exceptional customer service and high-quality Kubota equipment.
In Dec. 2018, Woodlee sold the dealership to Chris Ridge, a Kubota enthusiast with a deep commitment to serving McMinnville. Woodlee then worked as a salesman for two years.
“Since taking over the dealership, Chris has worked tirelessly to build on the dealership’s strong foundation and expand its offerings,” according to the release. “He has invested heavily in new equipment and technology and built a knowledgeable team dedicated to helping customers find the right equipment and parts for their needs.”
Ridge renamed the dealership as Kubota of McMinnville in 2021, “to better reflect its focus on providing the best Kubota equipment and service in the area.”
With the dealership located in the heart of the “Nursery Capital of the World,” Ridge says his goal is to care for his nursery farmers as well as Ag and construction customers.
“As an owner you are always looking to better the customers, employees, and community,” said Ridge. “H&R Agri-Power will be able to take the dealership to the next level for everyone to grow. As an ESOP company under H&R Agri-Power, the dealership will have access to a wealth of resources and expertise that will allow the dealership to better serve everyone. From day one the transition process with H&R Agri-Power has been great. The dealership will be in great hands under the new leadership.”
H&R Agri-Power is 100% employee owned and said they are excited to welcome McMinnville’s employees into the H&R Agri-Power family.
