In 1935 John S. Blazey began a small blacksmith business in Palmyra while also running a welding shop. His clientele were mainly local farmers and in order to meet their needs he started to service and install water pumps, did general repairs and began to sell International Harvester Tractors and farm machinery.
When his son, John T. Blazey, joined the business in 1959 the community was changing. Farms were being sold and the area was becoming more residential. To meet this new shift in customer needs a new dimension had to be added to the business. Cub Cadet, a new line of lawnmowers produced by International Harvester, was the new dimension.
As time went on the number of farmers in the area diminished, and the residential area continued to grow. And as the community started to change the business also grew. With the growth of the business the family was also growing, and the third generation of Blazey Boys joined the team. Jim and Jeff stepped up to the plate and brought with them enthusiasm and excitement. The family was now ready to meet the new challenges and opportunities the road would bring. The store in Palmyra was remodeled, the showroom expanded two fold, a warehouse was erected, and recently a new outdoor lot was constructed to facilitate the growing inventory.
Today our dealership has grown by leaps and bounds to better facilitate our growing family of customers. And as our dealership has grown so has the number of lines we now have available for our customers. The original Cub Cadet line has become larger and we now carry the full fleet. Customers will find Cub Cadet Commercial zero turns, Cub Utility Vehicles, and the new Cub Cadet Yanmar compact line all under our roof. In addition, our dealership also carries a wide selection of Stihl products. We now also carry a full line of Kubota Tractors and utility vehicles as well as a variety of Bush Hog brand implements to help complete any and all jobs our customers need to accomplish.
Our dealership also stocks a large selection of used equipment and an extensive supply of parts to better meet our customer's needs. However, we realize that there are many dealerships and now box stores that offer these products and parts as well. So why come to us? The answer is simple, here at John S. Blazey Inc. our customers are not just another sales receipt. Here at John S. Blazey Inc. our customers are our family and our service backs that up. Whether it is a question answered or service after the sale we strive to go the extra mile for our customers.
