Norwood are excited to announce the expansion of our footprint in Canterbury and Otago, following the acquisition of the Johnson Gluyas Tractors business, a dealer group that operates out of Ashburton, Timaru, and Oamaru. With an existing dealership in Christchurch, we are proud to be growing our offering across the heartland of New Zealand agriculture.

From Monday 17th August, these three new dealerships will begin their transition into the Norwood retail network.

Our first priority is to assure Johnson Gluyas Tractors customers that they can continue to expect to receive exceptional support from the team at their local dealership. All Johnson Gluyas Tractors staff have been offered a place in the Norwood team, and you can continue to contact your existing local parts, service, and sales representatives.

With a network now spanning 25 locations across the country, Norwood has the largest dealer footprint of any tractor retailer in New Zealand.

Norwood CEO Tim Myers has signalled his commitment to building on existing customer relationships, as well as expanding on the advice, support, and product solutions available in the region.

“Canterbury is home to some of New Zealand’s largest, most progressive cropping and seed production operations. Norwood’s suite of professional cultivation, seeding and harvest products, from world leading manufacturers is well suited to serve these operations.”

“Norwood is looking forward to enhancing the exceptional level of back up support, advice and precision farming solutions available, and will work with existing Johnson Gluyas customers to ensure the transition is seamless”.

This acquisition, alongside Norwood’s investment in precision agriculture business Vantage New Zealand, is a demonstration of our high level of commitment to providing customers with optimal support for their suite of product brands and technology solutions.
