Em­metts ex­pan­sion

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Wim­mera agri­cul­tural ma­chin­ery dealer Em­mett Group has con­tin­ued to ex­pand with the ac­qui­si­tion of a deal­er­ship in Oak­bank, South Aus­tralia.

Em­metts, with four Vic­to­rian and six South Aus­tralian branches, con­firmed it had bought Paech Mo­tors in the Ade­laide Hills as part of a John Deere dealer con­sol­i­da­tion trend.

Em­metts’ his­tor­i­cal head­quar­ters is at its Ru­pa­nyup branch. Its other branches are in Hor­sham, War­rackn­abeal, Swan Hill, Kad­ina, Rose­wor­thy, Mur­ray Bridge, Parn­dana, Pin­na­roo, Ren­mark and now Oak­bank.

Em­mett Group is a fam­ily-owned, Vic­to­rian and South Aus­tralian com­pany that un­der­went ma­jor ex­pan­sion in 2015, which in­cluded the ac­qui­si­tion of South Aus­tralia’s Rosen­burg Ma­chin­ery Group. The move to buy Paech Mo­tors has filled geo­graph­i­cal gaps be­tween the Em­metts branches.

The Paech staff will join the Em­metts team and re­main at the branch.

Em­mett Group man­ag­ing direc­tor Peter Em­mett said it was ex­cit­ing to be ex­pand­ing the busi­ness.

“With the com­pany size we hope to build on the ex­cel­lent rep­u­ta­tion for ser­vice Roger Paech, fam­ily and staff mem­bers have built up over the years,” he said.

“The Em­mett Group is com­mit­ted to South Aus­tralia and Vic­to­ria and the cus­tomers who pur­chase our prod­ucts.

“We are as com­mit­ted to Aus­tralian agri­cul­ture and ground care as you are.”

Em­metts is a fam­ily owned com­pany, started by Jack Em­mett in Ru­pa­nyup in 1957.

Jack’s four sons own Em­metts and sit on a man­age­ment board.
