Welcome, Heritage Tractor!
In September of 2013, the County, the City of Adrian, and Elizabeth Ogg, the Bates County Economic Developer, began work with Heritage Tractor on a possible new facility north of Adrian. Heritage Tractor is a John Deere dealer who currently has 6 locations in Kansas and 4 in Missouri. Dale Van Slyke will be the manager of this facility.
After 7 months of work, everything has been finalized and Heritage is officially building their new implementation dealership and warehouse here in Bates County. This facility when finished will be over 50,000 square feet, with a $4.5 million investment, and 25 new jobs! Look forward to a grand opening in the Fall of 2014.
