Century Rain Aid branches now part of John Deere
Century Rain Aid, formerly a distributor of landscape and irrigation products, is now part of the new John Deere Landscapes national distribution network. Deere & Company acquired all 170 Century branches with the purchase of Century’ parent company, Richton International Corporation. The Century locations were combined with 50 branches of McGinnis Farms, an Alpharetta, Ga. wholesale distributor that had previously been acquired by Deere & Co. The new John Deere Landscapes distribution network now has more than 200 branches in 37 states and Canada.
