Boekeman Machinery Acquires Coote Motors: A New Milestone for Agricultural Equipment in the Central Wheatbelt
Boekeman Machinery has expanded their Western Australian Dealer Network by signing an agreement to acquire Coote Motors effective from the 1st of July 2023.
This expansion of the Boekeman Machinery group will see Coote Motors re-branded to Boekeman Machinery Brookton, based at the existing premises at 81 Robinson Rd, Brookton WA 6306.
Boekeman Machinery has been in the agricultural machinery industry for over 55 years, delivering the right equipment for farmers to run their businesses more effectively. The acquisition of Coote Motors is part of Boekeman Machinery’s long-term growth strategy in expanding their network of dealerships and increasing their ability to meet the needs of the farmers in Western Australia.
Coote Motors Brookton is a well established agricultural dealership which currently holds franchises for New Holland Ag, K-Line Ag, Ausplow, Flexi-coil, Hardi, MacDon and more. Coote Motors was established in 1946 by Jack Coote, and has been a long-standing name in the agricultural equipment industry in Western Australia. Over the years, the dealership has built up an extensive network of clients, as well as a reputation for offering exceptional sales and service solutions.
With the acquisition of Coote Motors by Boekeman Machinery, Boekeman Machinery Brookton will continue to hold the franchises listed above, along with New Holland Construction, Horwood Bagshaw, Grain King, Simplicity, Bogballe, Jadan, Auscut & Landboss.
Furthermore, the Boekeman Machinery Northam Branch will become a Multi Franchise CNH location, which will sell both Case IH Ag and New Holland Ag out of the one location.
Stuart Boekeman, Dealer Principal of Boekeman Machinery stated that “The acquisition of Coote Motors is a fantastic opportunity for Boekeman Machinery to broaden our customer base and to continue providing expert service and equipment solutions to our customers. We believe that the values and experience of Coote Motors align perfectly with our own values and aspirations.”
According to Stuart Boekeman, the acquisition will allow Boekeman Machinery to offer a wider range of products and services to farmers in Western Australia. The acquisition will also enable the dealership to leverage both their customer base and supplier network, which is particularly important given the recent disruptions in the global supply chain to ensure the business continuity for all customers.
As part of the acquisition, the Boekeman Machinery team is excited to welcome the staff of Coote Motors to the Boekeman family. The acquisition will allow Boekeman Machinery to offer new opportunities to the team and offer significant career development prospects.
As stated, Barry Coote (Coote Motors), the current owner and manager of Coote Motors will retire from his successful dealership and Andrew Boekeman, Director of Boekeman Machinery, will become the branch manager at Boekeman Machinery Brookton.
Boekeman Machinery Brookton intends on maintaining the high standards that its customers have come to expect at Coote Motors. They will continue to provide the latest, most technologically advanced, and most effective equipment solutions to the farmers of Western Australia as they work towards the common goal of improving agricultural productivity in the region.
