The extent of the changes will be updated signage and finishes, Garcia said.
Tri-State Equipment sells to new owners
Tri-State Equipment has new owners as of Wednesday.
Scott Bay Horn and Fred Nipple have been working on a deal to purchase the 13,000-square-foot business on 3025 W. Victory Way for about two years — a deal they finalized last week.
“We’re excited to be in the community and glad to be here,” Bay Horn said.
The business partners already have John Deere equipment businesses in four other Colorado locations: Montrose, Grand Junction, Alta Vista and Alamosa.
The staff will remain the same, Bay Horn said.
“Same people that everybody’s used to,” he said.
