Our History

Quality Equipment, LLC was formed on November 1, 2007 with the merger of five (5) locally owned John Deere dealership organizations across Central and Southeastern North Carolina. The consolidation included eight (8) locations associated with the previous JD dealership groups: Quality Farm Equipment, E & E Farm Equipment, Revels Tractor Company, Harnett Tractor Company, and D&L Equipment. 

Since the company was founded in 2007, Quality Equipment, LLC has continued to grow.  Byrd Tractor & Equipment in Burlington merged into Quality Equipment, LLC during 2008.  In 2010, Quality Equipment, LLC acquired Jacksonville Lawn & Leisure in Jacksonville, NC.  During 2011, Riddle Equipment in Carthage merged into the organization as the eleventh dealership location.  In 2012, Bowers Implement in Albemarle joined Quality Equipment through a merger. Quality Equipment acquired Martin Bros. Equipment in Wadesboro during 2013. On March 31, 2015 Quality Equipment acquired S.J. Black in Monroe. In early 2017 Quality Equipment, LLC decided to close the Monroe and Wadesboro locations and open a new location in Polkton NC to serve the needs of our customers in this area. The Polkton location sets on 20 acres and has 80,000 sq. ft. under roof. This location is the largest farm equipment dealership facility on the East Coast. We have over $1.5M of parts inventory, 11,000 sq.ft. inside sales showroom. In July 2017 Quality Equipment acquired Barhill Equipment Co. in Durham NC. With this location we now provide complete coverage for the triangle area of NC.

While our company has grown, we strive to maintain significant local decision making to provide the highest level of service for our customers.
