RDO Equipment Co. Opens New Store in Chandler

A new RDO Equipment Co. store has opened at 1400 S. Maricopa Rd. in what was once a vacant 10-acre lot on Interstate 10 in the Gila River Indian Community. It is the company’s second full-service John Deere construction equipment dealership in the Phoenix area.

“Our new store in Chandler furthers our commitment to customers and is allowing us to expand our overall services and product support capabilities in this growing market,” said Dennis Howard, the company’s southwest construction region vice president.

In keeping with the traditions and culture of the Gila River tribe, the grand opening event began with a traditional ceremonial blessing of the site led by tribal member Barnaby Lewis. Following the blessing, presented Lewis and the tribe with a special gift to commemorate the grand opening and signify the partnership between RDO and the Gila River Indian Community.

Located in the Lone Butte Industrial Park, the 31,300-square-foot store features a large showroom with adjacent offices, sizeable parts warehouse and a 12-bay service shop with a drive-thru, open-air wash bay.

The service department is utilizing a water recycling system that filters the water used for washing equipment and allows it to be reused continually. Additionally, the store features LED lighting throughout, energy-efficient spray-foam insulation and polished concrete floors.

The store is the eighth in Arizona and 78th in the company’s network across 10 states. In addition to John Deere equipment, RDO provides equipment, parts and service for Topcon, senseFly and Hitachi.
