PALMYRA, Mo. — John Deere Construction and Forestry recently presented Martin Equipment with the Onyx Circle Award. Honoring the top-performing dealerships throughout the United States and Canada, the award recognizes outstanding achievement in customer, product and service support.

In a press release, DeLene Martin Bane, Martin Equipment president, said, “This accomplishment recognizes our employees who work together every day to support and take care of our customers. Without their dedication and hard work, none of this would be possible. We are also truly humbled by our customers, who give us the opportunity to earn their business and be a part of their successes.

“For nearly 100 years, our family has been honored to serve the surrounding communities and work alongside such hardworking employees and customers. We’re committed to providing the same level of support for years to come.”

The Onyx Circle Award was developed by John Deere to recognize and commend North American dealers that go above and beyond for customers and employees. Since the award’s inception in 2011, Martin Equipment has received the Onyx Circle Award seven times, showcasing genuine customer care, support and product knowledge.

“It’s admirable to see the focus and drive exemplified by Martin Equipment as the team remains close to our customers,” Jason Daly, vice president of earthmoving sales, marketing and customer success at John Deere, said. “It takes a lot of work to successfully run a dealership. The team at Martin Equipment works directly with their customers to solve challenges, support critical infrastructure job sites and provide an experience second to none.”

Martin Equipment is a fourth-generation, family-owned John Deere Construction and Forestry dealer in Goodfield, Ill., with nine locations across Iowa, Illinois and Missouri. Martin’s commitment to service was established in 1926 with the opening of Sam F. Martin Equipment in Roanoke, Ill. Sam’s unflinching commitment continued for three decades, ensuring a prosperous and growing business serving the national marketplace.

With historic developments in earthmoving and forestry equipment over time, a new era with tremendous potential for growth began. Those opportunities resulted in the formation of Martin Equipment of Illinois, Inc. in 1981 as an authorized John Deere Industrial (construction, utility and forestry) dealership.
