Hudson, WI – All States Ag Parts, LLC (“All States Ag Parts” or “ASAP”), the leading supplier of replacement agricultural parts in North America and portfolio company of Kinderhook Industries, LLC (“Kinderhook”), announced today the acquisition of Combine World Inc. (“Combine World” or the “Company”). Combine World is a Canada-based supplier of new, used, and reconditioned farm and light construction equipment and replacement parts. Combine World specializes in alternative parts for combines. Combine World will be ASAP’s sixth add-on acquisition.
The acquisition of Combine World, based in Saskatchewan, expands ASAP’s presence into Western Canada, providing ASAP with two strategic locations to serve the world’s 8th largest agricultural economy. ASAP previously purchased Ontario-based Fawcett Tractor Supply in November 2019.
“This is a great acquisition for us,” said John Dyke, CEO of All States Ag Parts. “Combine World complements our line of tractor parts being offered at Fawcett Tractor Supply and positions us to deliver tractor, combine and other agricultural parts to the farming community in Canada,” said Dyke.
Paul Cifelli, Managing Director at Kinderhook, stated, “The Combine World acquisition demonstrates ASAP’s desire to expand both its Canadian footprint as well as its product offering. Combine World’s combine-focused product expertise will allow ASAP to offer a full suite of agricultural replacement parts to better serve its customers in the region.”
Former owner, Charlie Smith, will continue to operate Combine World during the transition period while also joining ASAP’s executive team. “Being part of All States Ag Parts is a great opportunity to improve our ability to take care of our customers. We’ll have access to our current combine parts inventory while also growing our tractor parts selection,” said Smith.
