Business Buzz: Acme Equipment to open new facility

Construction has begun on Acme Equipment at 680 36th St. S.W. in Fargo, directly north of Acme Tools. Acme Equipment is a division of Acme Tools focusing on equipment brands like Kubota.

FARGO — Acme Equipment, a division of Acme Tools focusing on equipment brands, recently broke ground on a new 32,600-square-foot facility at 680 36th St. S. in Fargo, just north of the Acme Tools store and adjacent to the store’s current equipment and rental lot.

Acme Tools closed on an asset purchase agreement with West Fargo-based Titan Machinery Inc. in April to acquire the new assets for Kubota, Cub Cadet, Grasshopper and Woods products from Fargo Tractor. Acme Equipment was approved by Kubota Tractor Corporation as the new Kubota dealer for the Fargo-Moorhead region in North Dakota and Minnesota. Kubota granted exclusive approval to Acme Equipment for all four of its product categories: Agriculture Tractors, Hay/Farm Implements, Construction Equipment and Turf products.

“Expanding Acme Equipment and our representation of the Kubota brand to the Fargo-Moorhead region increases our ability to serve our customers in the area with new equipment offerings to meet their needs,” said Paul Kuhlman, co-president of Acme Tools, via a Monday, Oct. 3, news release.

Acme Tools in Fargo is supporting Kubota sales and service while the new Acme Equipment facility is under construction.

The new facility is scheduled to open in the fall of 2023.
