Brandt Buys Cervus, Creates Mega-Dealer

Brandt Tractor has acquired Cervus Equipment Corp. The transaction sees publicly traded Cervus transition to 100 percent private ownership.

The landmark transaction creates Canada’s largest-ever equipment dealer network, adding 64 agriculture, transportation and material handling equipment locations to Brandt’s existing John Deere Construction & Forestry dealerships across Canada. When fully integrated, it will give Cervus’ customers access to Brandt’s national parts and technical support infrastructure.

The deal expands Brandt’s geographical footprint and enables the company to add, in select markets, Deere agricultural equipment; Peterbilt transportation equipment; and Clark, Sellick, JLG, Baumann and other material handling equipment.

With the acquisition of the Cervus locations in Canada, Australia and New Zealand, Brandt now owns and operates 120 full-service equipment dealerships.
