This past Monday, Ventrac Salesperson, Trevor Ryan was unwinding in his hotel room. Monday Night Football was on TV, but Trevor was distracted by e-mails and other business he was attending to. The Minnesota Vikings were playing the New York Giants and the game had been moved from Minneapolis to Detroit after the Metrodome roof collapsed under the weight of heavy snow. During a break in the action, the TV announcers cut to a shot of the 17-inches of snow that had fallen in Minneapolis, and this shot caught Trevor’s attention:
Have you seen Ventrac’s popping up anywhere else? We’d love to hear about it at: http://www.facebook.com/ventrac
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.
Congratulations to Ventrac for another well earned award! It is a great pleasure to announce Ventrac as the recipient of the Cascade Capital Corporation Business Growth Award for 2010. Selected from a seven-county wide area, this award recognizes companies that have achieved superior growth in sales over the past five years. Ventrac received this noteworthy achievement in the category of manufacturing based on exemplary growth in its export markets.
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.
Riceland Golf Course owner, Larry Lisic, was grateful for all the help he received after a damaging tornado swept across his property on September 16th. The tornado took a twelve mile long path from Wooster, Ohio and drove its way east in the direction of the Riceland Golf Course in Orrville, Ohio. The twister left a widespread trail of devastation in its path, with the majority of the damage near the Wooster OSU/OARDC campus.
