GOUVERNEUR – A new John Deere construction and forestry equipment branch is opening in Gouverneur.

Nortrax, North America’s largest John Deere construction and forestry dealership, is opening at 1486 US Hwy 11. Nortrax had a branch in Gouverneur until 2001 in the same building. It decided to re-enter the market, and has fully remodeled and stocked the store with equipment and parts to serve customers in St. Lawrence, Jefferson and Lewis counties.

The store will sell or rent equipment, and stocks all new and remanufactured parts, such as starters, alternators, seal kits and hydraulic pumps, as well as maintenance oils and lubes. Nortrax says. Staff also fabricate hydraulic hoses for all makes of equipment.

Parts that have to be ordered will arrive quickly, Nortrax says, because of the store’s proximity to the John Deere Regional Distribution Center in Grimsby, Ont.

Nortrax service technicians will be available from branches in Clifton Park and Plattsburgh.

Nortrax is the largest John Deere dealership group for construction, mining and forestry equipment in North America. More info:
