McIntosh & Son acquires Purcher and Staines

Presented by

Western Australian dealer McIntosh & Son has expanded its footprint, acquiring Purcher International and Staines Esperance

McIntosh & Son, which represents CNH Industrial brands, will strengthen its involvement with Case IH and New Holland through the acquisitions.

Purcher International, located in Geraldton in the state’s mid-west, will have its 55-year family legacy honoured by the continuation of the Purcher trading name at its correct location.

Parts and service for Case IH products and other franchises will continue at the existing 99 Flores Road location, while McIntosh & Son’s Geraldton dealership will also continue at 160 Flores Road.

Both dealerships will retain their current teams, led by McIntosh & Son’s Geraldton, Merredin, Moora and Wongan Hills general manager Anthony Ryan.

Steve and Paula Purcher will support the business during the transition, with Steve holding a mentoring role for the next year.

"Our journey has been a lot of hard work and fun throughout the years," he says.

"I believe people have enjoyed knowing that, as a family-run business, the buck stopped with [my father] Roy and then myself, which was a great compliment.

"For more than half a century, my family has built this business by understanding the importance of supporting great products with great customer service."

"Family values have been the heart of our business from the beginning, and we are pleased to be passing the baton onto another proud Western Australian family-owned business with the same values at its core."

In the case of Staines Esperance, located on the state’s south coast, McIntosh & Son will rebrand the existing Staines building and add New Holland, Morris and K-Line franchises to the company’s offering.

"We have really enjoyed serving the growers of Esperance over the last 27 years but it takes the resources of a larger dealer group to meet the changing demands of agriculture," Neil Staines says.

McIntosh & Son already has four dealerships serving that broader region, and a blend of existing McIntosh & Son plus Staines Esperance staff will operate the new dealership team.

"While the announcement in Esperance is new, the product knowledge and support systems for New Holland, Morris, and K-Line are well-established in our group, so this feels like a natural progression," McIntosh & Son Albany, Esperance, Katanning and Kulin general manager Devon Gilmour says.

McIntosh Group CEO David Capper says he is excited to be growing the company’s offering through regional WA.

"CNH Industrial has been our core business partner for some time," he says.

"We are excited to be taking on our first Case IH dealership and we thank CNH Industrial for trusting us with both of their core franchises in the Midwest.

"I would like to thank both the Staines and Purcher families for their trust in us - we are grateful they have chosen us to continue their legacies."

The Staines acquisition became effective on August 1, while the Purcher acquisition occurs on September 1.
