Service Manager Travis McCrate and Parts Manager John Asmus are integral parts of the Tulsa New Holland management team.
Tulsa New Holland is known for quality products, genuine OEM parts and outstanding service. They are your area headquarters for tractors, outdoor power equipment and hay equipment, providing outstanding sales and service to northeastern Oklahomans for nearly 33 years. Their product lineup includes New Holland, Cub Cadet, Bush Hog and Woods. The company has been ranked in the top 100 Cub Cadet dealers nationwide since 2000, and is currently ranked number 13 in North America out of a total of 1,400 dealers.
President Mike McCrate joined Tulsa New Holland in 1986 and became owner in 1989. “We are somewhat of a rarity in the industry,” said McCrate, “in that we are still 100% family owned and operated and do all our business out of our one store.”
The Tulsa New Holland management team consists of President Mike McCrate, General Manager Kelly Umphrey, Service Manager Travis McCrate, and Parts Manager John Asmus.
John Asmus previously worked for a New Holland Dealership in Colorado and has been with the Tulsa company for a year and a half. John manages a parts inventory valued at half a million dollars. “Customers can usually walk out with any fast-moving part in hand. When we do have to order a part, we can request next-day delivery, but there’s a charge for it. Most parts are typically delivered in three days.”
Mike’s son, Travis, literally grew up at Tulsa New Holland and says he can remember being in the booth at the Tulsa Home & Garden Show when he was in third grade. He has been a full-time employee of the family business since 2006. “We confidently service any product we sell because we have the best technicians in our industry,” said Travis. “We pay top dollar, hire the best technicians and do everything we can to retain them. Tulsa New Holland employs one master technician, two top technicians, and we have several rising stars on the horizon.”
