P&K Equipment announced plans to expand.

The announcement comes after P&K acquired Grissoms, LLC, a neighboring John Deere dealer with locations in Prague, Shawnee, McAlester, Muskogee and Ada. These five locations are set to join the company’s 13 current ones — 11 in Oklahoma and two in Arkansas.

P&K’s new additions will “further solidify P&K Equipment’s position as the largest John Deere dealer in Oklahoma,” according to a release.

“The Grissom Family has a long history in the John Deere business going back over 50 years, and we’re excited to continue their successes. We look forward to having their customers, community partners and employees join the P&K equipment team,” said P&K General Manager Scott Eisenhauer. “Expanding P&K into these new communities across central and eastern Oklahoma, our number one goal will continue to be providing the highest level of customer service with a sense of urgency in all aspects of our business — whether that’s sales, parts or service. For the transition and the many years to come, we will strive to create a positive P&K experience for all who interact with us.”

The company has more than 30 years experience working with and supporting numerous customer segments such as agricultural equipment, residential and commercial lawn equipment, commercial worksite equipment and more, according to the release.

Keith Grissom, along with numerous other Grissoms employees, will stay on with the acquisition.

“By joining Grissoms, LLC, with the P&K team and further expanding the central and eastern Oklahoma regions, P&K plans to fully support each of these customer segments in the area. The P&K team prides itself on having knowledgable team members, offering a wide range of equipment, providing unbeatable parts availability and providing unmatched customer service,” according to the release.

P&K was founded as a single-location dealership in Kingfisher in 1985 by Barry Pollard and Wendell Kirtley. Now, the company has locations in Oklahoma, Arkansas and Iowa, has more than $25 million in parts inventory and employees more than 300 people.
