-- Cervus Equipment today announced it has signed an agreement for the acquisition of the John Deere dealership owned by J.B. Scott Pty Ltd., subject to due diligence and other conditions, with an anticipated settlement date of September 30, 2020. J.B. Scott currently operates its John Deere dealership in North Geelong, Victoria, Australia.
Cervus Equipment plans to relocate the John Deere dealership to 345 Princes Highway in Colac, Victoria, with a grand opening planned for November 2020. Between finalizing the acquisition on the 30th of September 2020 and opening the Colac location, Cervus Equipment will provide support to the J.B. Scott customer base from its existing locations.
“We are excited to bring John Deere to Colac and increase our dealership network across Victoria.

Through the expanded footprint of Cervus Equipment’s network, customers will enjoy unmatched service and support including access to Southern Victoria’s largest parts inventory and a wide selection of new and pre-owned agricultural equipment.
