A large-scale John Deere dealer has proposed opening a new site in Sioux Center.

AgriVision Equipment representatives announced this week the company’s plans to build a new dealership and create high-quality jobs in the community.

“I see this as a win-win-win,” Sioux Center City Councilman Dale Den Herder said after the announcement. “It’s a win for the community. It’s a win for the neighboring businesses here in Sioux Center. And it’s a win for the John Deere customers.”

AgriVision Equipment CEO Jeremy Ostrander shared the announcement at Monday’s City Council meeting, asking to purchase 15 acres of city-owned land along northern Highway 75 to build a state-of-the-art dealership. It will serve customers in the agricultural, residential and construction markets.

 “We’re very excited to come to Sioux Center,” Ostrander said. “Any time you can be near other economic activity and if people have a reason to come to town to accomplish multiple goals, in our findings that is a big benefit.”

AgriVision Equipment Group is a 17-location John Deere ag, turf, commercial application and commercial worksite products dealer serving customers in Iowa, Missouri, South Dakota, and Nebraska. Ostrander said the company is already seeking to add employees with the Sioux Center site in mind.

Sioux Center Development Director Dennis Dokter said city planners have been working with representatives from AgriVision to identify the potential site and propose a development agreement reflecting the creation of high-quality jobs in the community.

The council set a public hearing for November 26 at 4 p.m. to consider the sale of city-owned property to AgriVision and voted to authorize a letter of intent outlining development incentives for this project.

“We are excited to be working with AgriVision on their plans to locate here,” Dokter said. “We are looking forward to them working with our community and building relationships in Sioux Center.”
