C&N Tractors was founded in september of 1974 when Jim Cox purchased the existing Cox Brothers (no relation) Massey-Ferguson dealership in Watsonville, California. Immediately, C&N Tractors became a Kubota tractor dealership, along with Massey-Ferguson. Soon a new facility was built to serve the ever-increasing equipment demands of the central coast. Along with the expansion, new lines of equipment were added to better serve the needs of the area.
Over the ensuing years C&N Tractors dropped Massey-Ferguson line.
In 1995, John Cooper, Nigel Mallinson, Julie Oliver and Mike Sternbach purchased C&N Tractors. In 1999, C&N Tractors became a Kubota only dealer. In 2000, C&N Tractors expanded to include a Full Service Facility in Paso Robles Ca, managed by Jeff Sponhaltz.
Since 1974, through the vision and philosophy of Jim Cox, C&N Tractors has more than quadrupled in size and scope. Founded on the principle of "Legendary Service" and living up to our mission statement of "Give Us Your Tough Jobs", we exist today with one sole purpose... To better serve the tractor and equipment needs of the central California coast area.
