Houston Deere dealer to move

Houston-based Leslie Doggett Industries will be moving its Houston John Deere Construction Equipment dealership to a new location on the site of a historic Chevrolet dealership, according to the Houston Business Journal. 

According to the article, it is estimated that Leslie Doggett paid $8.4 million for the 23.5-acre site.

Leslie Doggett recently became the nation’s largest John Deere Construction Equipment dealer after a successful acquisition of Rush Enterprises in September.

The $26.2 million venture gave Leslie Doggett exclusive rights to sell John Deere construction and forestry products for the entire state of Louisiana, east and southeast Texas, including all of the Gulf Coast from Louisiana to Brownsville, Texas. The company is also the largest Toyota Industrial Equipment dealer in the country.
