Huron Farm Management, LLP of Avondale, AZ (Rob Rosztoczy,

vice-president) purchased 6.3 acres, or 274,428-square-feet, for $576.100

($2.10 PSF) at Tiffany Loop and Interstate-10, with highway frontage at

Continental Ranch in Marana. The buyer intends to build an 8,100-square-foot

John Deere dealership on the site, dba Arizona Machinery. This will be the 25th

location for the company that is anticipated to open this Summer 2014.

Arizona Machinery is a family-owned business, founded in 1947 by Fred Elder

and Jim Deaderick, and had its start as the John Deere and Caterpillar dealer for most of the state of Arizona. In 1959, after being diagnosed with cancer, Deaderick began selling off the business. Elder retained the John Deere franchise for agricultural equipment and John Deere’s new emerging line of construction equipment in Maricopa County. Elder’s company, which kept the Arizona Machinery name,continued the growth it had begun in the 1940s, and built a reputation for unbeatable parts and service tomatch the quality of its John Deere products. In 1975, shortly after Fred Elder passed away, his son-in-law Ferenc Rosztoczy took over management of the company. A Hungarian immigrant who is a physical chemist by education, Rosztoczy came into the

business with no working knowledge of the farm implement business. His firm hand and intelligent direction guided the company for over 30 years through both the booms and the busts of the local agricultural industry. Rosztoczy recognized the need to diversify the company’s interests so the company could continue to grow as the area’s cotton farms gradually gave way to residential subdivisions. In 1979, the company

picked up John Deere’s “consumer products” line of equipment, which included machines from residential lawn mowers to compact tractors and commercial mowers to maintain large areas of turf. In 1986, John Deere rewarded Arizona Machinery’s quality performance with one of the nation’s first golf and turf distributorships. Throughout his tenure, Arizona Machinery Co. operated out of three stores located in Avondale, Buckeye and Chandler. In the late 1990s, the transition began to the next generation. Tom Rosztoczy, Ferenc’s oldest son, has been the president and general manager for Arizona Machinery since 1998. Ferenc’s two other sons also work for the family business. Rob serves as vice president and corporate sales manager, and Teddy is the

Golf Sales Manager for our operations in the southwestern U.S. Seeing that opportunities for further growth within the company’s Arizona territory would be limited, Tom has overseen the company’s acquisition of additional John Deere dealerships outside of Arizona. The company’s first venture outside of Arizona occurred in 1997 with the acquisition of EZ Equipment, a smallJohn Deere dealership located in the San Diego area. In 2002, Arizona Machinery acquired ownership of AA Equipment, a larger dealership operating out of eastern Los Angeles County. In recent years, the two

southern California stores established two additional stores, one in Indio specializing in golf & turf, and theother in El Cajon, a location which sells John Deere products and a full line of trailer parts. Subsequently,AA Equipment added a location in Las Vegas, Nevada. Together, these five stores were consolidated into the AA Equipment organization, which sells primarily the lawn & garden, commercial and golf & turf lines

of John Deere.
