Ventrac is proud of its employees and what they contribute to the company on a daily basis. And when their talents reach out globally beyond the company, we like to recognize their achievements. Earlier this year, Production Development Engineer, Roscoe Lehman, designed a 3D image of the Ventrac MJ840 contour deck and entered his creation in the 2011 Siemens PLM Software Global Image Program Contest. Roscoe’s masterpiece was chosen as one of the best winning images to be highlighted in their 2011 Calendar!
We love to hear from our customers! And we love to see Ventrac popping up in some of the most unusual places across the country. In Duluth, Minnesota, the Aerostich company mailed out their annual holiday supplement and what can you find on the front cover? A happy customer with his Ventrac! Just today, we got a great email from this customer who wanted to share his story with us.
Fall is a colorful time of year, but collecting those vibrant leaves isn’t always a pretty job once they hit the ground! It can be a dreaded job! Ventrac equipment helped take hours out of the backbreaking, labor-some task of leaf collection at a near-by camp this past weekend. Volunteers were on hand with two Ventrac tractors to help with the huge job of leaf clean up at Camp Luz, a Christian camp, near Orrville, Ohio. “Leaf collection for us has always been a really BIG job,” says Andrew Michaels, Program Director for Camp Luz. “In the past it has taken sometimes up to a month to get the leaves collected.”
The job was accomplished in just ONE day as two Ventracs, equipped with vacuum collection systems, buzzed around making quick work out of something that normally took weeks of hand raking and bagging. Both tractors used the vacuum collection systems to round up the leaves but also switched to the blower attachment to gather any stray debris and leaves in tight areas amongst the trees.
Ventrac Gives Back to the Community at Ida Sue School/Nick Amster Workshop and the Christian Children’s Home of Ohio.
Wayne County, Ohio is an amazing community where people come together to help support those in need. At Ventrac, in Orrville, giving back to the community has always been an important part of their company beliefs. So, the management team set plans in motion for a service project to assist the Ida Sue School/Nick Amster Workshop and the Christian Children’s Home of Ohio organizations in Wooster with some needed outdoor maintenance projects and improvements.
We are proud to announce that Zimmer Tractor, Inc. of Monroe, Ohio has recently added Ventrac tractors and attachments to their current product line. Covering the Cincinnati-Tri-State area, Zimmer provides product to a wide range of industries, including homeowners, turf and commercial industries as well as a large portion of customers in the agricultural industry. Ventrac will be available at the Monroe, Ohio showroom only, but Zimmer Tractor showrooms can also be found in Aurora and Brookville, Indiana.
“We thought Ventrac would be a good fit for our customers,” says Jason Beckner, Vice President. Besides offering customers an Ohio manufactured product, Zimmer added the Ventrac line because it had a design, form and function that was different than some of their current lines of compact tractors. Ventrac’s all wheel drive and tight turning radius design will allow it to go where other tractors can not and will be sold to end-users who require a tractor that does much more than mow grass. With its many unique features, the new product will bring a heightened dimension to the Zimmer lineup. Along with Ventrac, the dealership carries a wide range of quality equipment including Kubota, New Holland, Scag, Wright, Landpride, Woods and Bush Hog.
The business owes its success to the core beliefs that customer satisfaction comes first and with Zimmer’s experienced staff and top notch facilities, customers get the specialty attention they need – before, during and after the sale. “Every employee is customer-centered,” adds Beckner. “We have the staff and the facilities to take care of the customer the way they need to be taken care of.”
Throughout the year, customers can take advantage of seasonal specials offered by Zimmer on select equipment and accessories. A full service parts department with skilled technicians are always on hand to keep equipment running at its peak performance.
Zimmer Tractor can be found online at www.zimmertractor.com, and for those who would like to see the impressive Monroe, Ohio showroom stop in to check out the full line of quality equipment located at 461 Breaden Drive. The store is open Monday – Friday 7:30am to 5:00pm and Saturday 8:00am to 12:00pm. They can also be contacted at 513-539-0539.
