DAVID CITY, Neb. -- A Nebraska farm equipment dealership is upgrading its operation in David City.

AKRS Equipment announced Tuesday that is building a brand new John Deere Dealership in its Butler County location. Construction will begin in spring of 2022, with expected completion in the summer of 2023.

“The new facility will be the first to implement our new AKRS Signature Design,” said Kevin
Clark, Chief Executive Officer of AKRS Equipment. “The 40,000 square feet of service space
will be equipped with the latest technology to serve customers most efficiently”.

“David City is the ideal location for AKRS to expand our services,” said Glen Hochstein, Director
of Aftermarket. “We’ll be able to increase our capacity and work more efficiently. In addition, the
new AKRS Signature Design includes extra-large service bays and many amenities that will
allow our great team of technicians to work in an industry-leading environment.”

“With the recent introduction of John Deere autonomous tractors, it is imperative that our
dealership also introduce state-of-the-art facilities to support such advanced precision ag
technologies. Our customers demand and deserve this level of commitment from their
equipment provider”, said Kent Kirchhoff, VP Sales and Marketing for AKRS Equipment.

"As a premier John Deere dealer, this expansion represents AKRS commitment to the David
City community and will bring even higher levels of support to our customers,” said Clark said.

AKRS Equipment is the Midwest’s largest John Deere dealership headquartered in Lincoln,
Nebraska. AKRS operates 27 dealerships across Nebraska and Kansas.
