AGCO announces merger with Parallel Ag

By Andi Anderson

AGCO Corporation has announced the successful merger of Parallel Ag with A.C. McCartney Equipment dealership in Illinois.

This strategic move incorporates all five A.C. McCartney locations in Carthage, Durand, Fulton, Mt. Sterling, and Wataga, which will continue to operate under the A.C. McCartney name, ensuring continuity for customers.

The merger is part of AGCO’s ambitious growth strategy initiated in 2022, aimed at transforming and expanding its North American dealership network.

This is in response to the increasing demand from farmers and the need for comprehensive access and superior customer experiences.

The integration of these two historic AGCO dealerships brings together a wealth of resources and expertise, promising enhanced benefits and services for farmers in Illinois, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas.

Shawn Skaggs, President and CEO of Parallel Ag, expressed enthusiasm about the merger, highlighting the combined capabilities that will now offer more extensive services and support to the agricultural community.

Ruchir Patel, AGCO’s VP of Global Distribution Management, noted the merger as a significant enhancement, combining the strengths of two committed teams to form a robust, farmer-focused partner.

Woody McCartney, President of A.C. McCartney Equipment, also shared his positive outlook on joining forces with Parallel Ag, emphasizing the alignment of values and resources that will benefit both customers and employees.

The newly merged entity will provide AGCO’s full lineup of popular brands and equipment, including Fendt® and Massey Ferguson, across the company’s extended territories.

This merger aims to maintain and elevate the quality of service and product availability to meet the evolving needs of modern farmers.

This development is part of a series of expansions by AGCO, which recently included dealership enhancements in Colorado, Idaho, southern Illinois, and Indiana.

These efforts underscore AGCO’s commitment to supporting American agriculture by ensuring that farmers have the best tools and support to grow in a competitive market.
