Middletown Tractor Sales welcomes Buckhannon location


BUCKHANNON — Middletown Tractor Sales (MTS) celebrated their 70th Year Anniversary and a ribbon cutting for the Grand Opening of their Buckhannon location. MTS is the oldest John Deere Dealer in West Virginia. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions in 2020, after being open for 30 days, the store had to be shut down. Finally, two years later they were able to celebrate the official opening on Friday, July 15.

The Buckhannon location is one of four family-owned stores. In 1952, Dallas Boyers opened the first MTS in Mannington, West Virginia. For 70 years, three generations of the Boyers family have maintained the family business. Dallas’ son Jim Boyers took over as CEO for his father, who then passed it onto his son, current MTS President Adam Boyers. Adam expressed with great emotion, “This is a tremendous amount of responsibility to be able to continue my father’s and grandfather’s greatness and how they ran things. It is a high standard, but we have great employees that help make it easier.”

A certificate for congressional special recognition was presented by Congressman Mooney’s representative during the ceremonial ribbon cutting. Congressman Mooney’s statement read, “I send my sincere congratulations to Middletown Tractor Sales family and employees on your 70th Anniversary. Thank you for your contributions to the state of West Virginia. The history of your company is a wonderful story of a family-owned business with how through hard work you can achieve the American dream.”

A representative was also sent by Governor Jim Justice. Although Gov. Justice could not be present in person for the ceremony, he sent his congratulations to the Boyers family as well, as he is a man of agriculture. “Middletown Tractor Sales meets the needs of every outdoor equipment necessity. I welcome you to the official Buckhannon location’s ceremonial ribbon cutting.”

They celebrated the 70th Anniversary on Saturday, July 16 with free barbecue chicken, an antique tractor show and gift giveaways. It was a beautiful weekend celebration! Congratulations to Middletown Tractor Sales, the Boyers family and all the employees!
