To Our Valued Customers,
On March 21, 2020, Pennsylvania Governor Wolf and on March 23, 2020 Maryland Governor Hogan signed Emergency Executive Orders requiring all businesses that are not considered “life-sustaining” to be closed. To comply with the law, we closed our turf portion of the business briefly while we applied for exemptions and clarified whether or not we were allowed to remain open.
We have received exemptions, and have been informed our entire business is considered essential. This means that we are open for business. The Food & Agriculture, Transportation, and Energy sector(s) are listed as essential critical infrastructure workers by the Department of Homeland Security. We are an authorized dealer of John Deere and provide equipment, parts, components, and service to what is deemed by the Department of Homeland Security as essential critical infrastructure. In consideration of this designation, we as John Deere authorized dealers are needed to continue the operations and support John Deere as they operate to supply products needed for the critical areas of transportation, energy, communications, food and agriculture, chemical manufacturing, nuclear facilities, the operation of dams, water and wastewater treatment, public works, emergency services, and the defense industry.
We plan to continue operating as long as it is within the public interest to do so. We are taking all necessary precautions to stop the spread of COVID-19 and following CDC guidelines. Please feel free to reach out with any questions and thank you for your continued support!!!
