With Gallaghers Machinery West Wyalong and Temora Truck and Tractor owners Allan and Bev Gallagher looking to retire, David and Renee Thompson, of McPhersons Parts and Service, have seen an opportunity to expand their business.
On February 11, the Thompsons will take ownership of both businesses, which are both New Holland dealerships, taking their total to five.
Already with three businesses including McPhersons Parts and Service, Cowra Machinery and Forbes Machinery, David and Renee are excited by the opportunity of delivering the same customer service in Temora and West Wyalong.
“As we have with our current businesses in Parkes, Forbes and Cowra, we want to keep Temora Truck and Tractor and Gallaghers Machinery, which will become West Wyalong Machinery Centre, community-oriented businesses,” Mr Thompson said.
“Allan and Bev Gallagher have done a fantastic job since they started Temora Truck and Tractor back in 1980. As fellow New Holland dealers, we have been dealing with Allan and Bev for many years and it has been a pleasure.”
“We look forward to continuing to provide the excellent service customers at all our branches are familiar with.”
