On May 2nd Ventrac held an open house to celebrate the completion of phase one of their new Venture Drive manufacturing facility in Orrville, Ohio. The event gave Ventrac employees and their families a first look at the facility and gave Ventrac the chance to thank the various individuals and organizations who assisted in the construction of the facility. Guests were invited to walk through a self-guided tour covering everything from fabrication and welding to engineering and warehousing. A unique highlight of the tour included a historical display featuring over 75 years of products designed by the Steiner family. Mark Steiner, Vice President and Facilities Manager for Ventrac said, “It is humbling to look back and see all the innovation that our family has been blessed to be part of over the years.” He adds, “It’s exciting to see how our products have evolved from year to year to become an industry leader in the compact tractor world today.”
Ventrac was honored to have Ron Amstutz, from the Ohio House of Representatives, stop by to congratulate them on this accomplishment. Ohio Senator Frank LaRose stopped in to present an official Ohio Senate document honoring Venture Products on this great achievement. LaRose stated, “This open house is a justifiable source of pride and an outstanding reflection not only on the business itself, but also on the astute management of the Steiner family, on its hard-working employees and on the Orrville community.”
