This is branded content for Vanderfield.
Vanderfield, one of Australia's leading agricultural machinery dealerships and trusted John Deere Agriculture and Turf dealers, has experienced a lot of changes and growth over the past few years.
In 2019, they joined the RDO Australia Group, along with John Deere construction and forestry dealer RDO Equipment and construction and environmental machinery supplier Vermeer Australia, providing them access to more support, more machinery and more resources.
In late 2020, RDO Australia Group and Vanderfield acquired well-known John Deere dealer Chesterfield Australia, expanding Vanderfield's branch footprint across Northern NSW and Queensland.
It's the latest chapter in a story that goes back to 1963, when Vanderfield was launched. The business now has 22 branch locations.
For Vanderfield employees, there are now more opportunities than ever to access training and career progression across the whole RDO Australia Group network.
There are also a whole lot of resources available for them to access, including training on John Deere machinery and technology, and the ability to learn about other specialties across different types of machines.
There are a range of job opportunities available across Vanderfield at the moment and you can see what's available near you here.
The expanded dealer network has also allowed Vanderfield to service a wider range of customers, across more regions and spanning different sectors, from large multi-faceted farming operations to small hobby farms.
Vanderfield customers continue to be backed by the years of knowledge and resources to help their business move forward.
More than just a dealership to us, it's a partnership
Raymond Arcidiacono is a capsicum grower from Ballandean, Queensland.
He and his family have been working with Vanderfield for almost 20 years, and he credits the team with always going the extra mile.
His farm is two hours away from his local branch, but he says it feels like it's just down the road, and thanks his local Vanderfield team for always having his back.
Raymond runs a John Deere 6830 Premium Tractor, a 6105R, 6090RC, 6090MC and 5075M Utility Tractors, a 1026R Compact Utility Tractor and an 855D Gator across his two properties and packing shed, among other equipment.
"If one of our machines stop or break down, pretty much the whole show stops. From ground prep to planting, we need them to be there and ready to go.
"Downtime for even a week in a critical time for us means planting will be delayed, and we won't hit the market at our required time.
"When we've got contracts to fill, we need to be starting on time, with no downtime, so it's a domino effect if something goes wrong," Raymond says.
"We value the back-up and support that comes with our machines. If you can't support the product, there's no point having it, but Vanderfield's support is exceptional.
"Our closest Vanderfield branch is 2.5 hours from our farm, but it's like having them down the road. They care about us and our operations, and are more than just a dealership to us, but a true partner."
