The history of LandMark Implement begins with the purchase of Brown Implement Company by Clyde McClymont and his son Richard (Dick) McClymont, Sr. in 1947. Once acquired, the name was changed to reflect the new ownership and McClymont Implement, Inc. was established. In the early 1970's, McClymont Implement became the first John Deere dealer to reach a million dollars in whole goods sales volume within the Kansas City Branch. Outgrowing their current facility, a new facility was built southwest of Holdrege in 1973 where they are located today. Dick's oldest son, Richard, joined McClymont Implement in 1981 and his younger brother, Ted, in 1982. In 1985, Dick McClymont retired and his boys became co-owners.
In 1994, McClymont Implement purchased Schafer Brothers in Alma, which was used primarily as a service center. They also increased and improved their service shop size at the Holdrege store. In 1997, McClymont Implement celebrated their 50th anniversary and obtained a new logo to solidify their image.
In 1999, the LandMark you are familiar with today starts to take shape with the purchase of Smith Center and Phillipsburg, Kansas. The following year, the Minden Terminal was merged into the group bringing the group total to five locations in Holdrege, Minden, Alma, Smith Center and Phillipsburg.
In 2006, LandMark Implement, Inc. was formed with four dealerships: Holdrege and Minden in Nebraska, and Smith Center and Phillipsburg in Kansas and has now grown to include several partners, as well as additional dealerships in, Lexington, Gothenburg, Arapahoe, Elwood, Kearney and Shelton Nebraska.
The newest additions to the LandMark family are the dealerships of Oregon Trail Equipment, yet another successful, trusted John Deere network. As a result of this merger we are able to bring you a total spanning from eastern Kansas and Nebraska to the Nebraska panhandle.
We’re able to offer a more extensive parts and service network, a larger parts inventory and specialized product support. We’re able to stock a larger, more diverse inventory of new and used equipment to meet the needs of our customers on both sides of the Kansas/Nebraska border.
