Stoltz, Hub merging to form Equipment Ontario

MIDWESTERN ONTARIO – Stoltz Sales and Service, with locations in Mildmay and Listowel, will be getting a new look later this year.

It was announced on Oct. 26 that Stoltz Sales and Service and Hub International will be merging their two organizations to form Equipment Ontario.

Together, the newly formed group will service more than 16 counties with dealership locations in Mildmay, Listowel, Elmira, Lindsay, Port Perry, with a future location in Simcoe County to be determined.

“Both Stoltz and Hub have been leaders in their respective markets, and by merging they are creating a new stronger, progressive organization that will follow the Hub and Stoltz philosophy of, ‘we are small enough to care, but large enough to service,’” states a press release.

“We are excited to officially make this announcement,” said Hub International owner Greg Snoddon. “Our two families each have over 40 years of dealership experience in the agricultural industry. With the need for new representation for the Case IH brand in Simcoe County, it seemed like a natural fit for our two organizations to merge and service this important agricultural community between us.”

“We are very proud and grateful for the Equipment Ontario team as we lay out our plan for the future,” said Marlin Stoltz, owner of Stoltz Sales and Service. “We are extremely excited with the merger of our two great organizations. Our team will be part of history in the making.”

Both Hub and Stoltz will continue to represent all existing brands, and current team members will remain in their roles.

The merger will take effect Dec. 1.
