We would like to announce to you, our valued customers, that Westag has been acquired by Growers Services and that the change will take effect from July 1st 2022.
Simon would like to thank all of you for your support over the past 35 years that Westag has been in business in Ballarat. Also a huge thank you to the staff of Westag who have the opportunity to stay on with Growers Services into the future in their current roles.
Below is a statement from Growers Services being released to the media in the coming days.
Growers Services has announced the acquisition of Westag located in Ballarat, further expanding its presence in the Kubota dealership network.
The deal is expected to be finalised at the start of July and will take Growers Services to a total of six branches, demonstrating its strategic direction to growing its dealership presence.
Growers Services Director Steven Ayling said Westag had the same passion for customers as Growers Services making the dealership a well-suited addition.
“Ballarat is a key agricultural region consisting of mostly mixed farming and Kubota machinery plays a key role in supporting customers with whatever job lays ahead,” Mr Ayling said.
“We are excited to welcome Westag to our network and keep providing the exceptional service, support, and quality products that our customers have come to rely on.”
“With this expansion, we will be looking to learn from the local team but also improving the experience for customers where we see room for it. There are a lot of opportunities in the Ballarat market, it is a fantastic region with a lot of activity,” he said.
Westag Director Simon Meagher said after 35 years of servicing the Ballarat rural region, he was pleased to be handing over the baton to Growers Services.
“Growers Services’ philosophy of looking after customers is what we have always done and I look forward to seeing continued growth and support for the Westag branch," Mr Meagher said.
General Manager Sales for Kubota Australia Peter Gloury said the news was welcome for such an important agricultural region.
“Westag have done a great job over many years serving the needs of customers. I am confident that Growers Services will continue this given their track record of putting the needs of customers first.” Mr Gloury said.
Growers Services is a multiple Kubota dealer excellence award winner and five-star Kubota dealership group. It now has Kubota branches in Mildura, Renmark, Swan Hill, and Ballarat as well as two specialty branches in Berri and Griffith.
