Claas and LoneStar Ag open new North Texas location

LoneStar Ag's new dealership will play a role in Claas' plan to double North American business in the next five years.

In 2019, Claas of America president Eric Raby told dealers the company planned to double their North American business over the next five years.

The company’s North American expansion has reached North Texas, where a new partner location with LoneStar Ag has recently opened.

According to Farm-Equipment.com:

Omaha, Neb. — Claas of America and LoneStar Ag continue to expand their presence with the opening of a location in Dalhart, Texas. The new location will focus on better serving LoneStar Ag customers in North Texas as well as improving the availability of parts and service to existing customers in Texas.

“LoneStar Ag prides itself in conducting business with family values. Our customers are not just customers, they are family, which is why we are pleased to better serve them in sales, parts and service needs in the growing area of the region,” says Clint Hurst, owner of LoneStar Ag since 2001.

LoneStar Ag, previously known as Parmer County Implement, has served the Texas Panhandle region and beyond for more than 40 years. The Friona, Texas, location has sold Claas equipment and parts since 2001, offering a large selection of new and pre-owned inventory. The dealership’s expansion can be attributed to their focus on creating long-term relationships with their customers and doing so by providing the best customer service available.

“We couldn’t be more excited to expand Claas presence into Northern Texas with the help of LoneStar Ag,” says Eric Raby, president and general Manager – sales, Claas of America. “We value the commitment LoneStar Ag has to creating long-standing relationships with their customers. Their dedication to customer service ensures that our customers are receiving the quality care they deserve.”

The Dalhart location is now open for business, according to LoneStar Ag’s website. Forage harvesting is a critical component in Texas’ 248,000 farm, 130 million acre, $10.5 billion cattle industry.
