One local Ventrac dealer is helping to make a difference in the lives of many. Bryan Hollopeter, a fourth generation Medina family businessman and General Manager of Medina Tractor Sales, took the initiative and helped spearhead a community garden project for Feeding Medina County. Ventrac partnered with Medina Tractor, as one of the many sponsors, to help with the food and garden project and we caught up with them on the big day of planting.
Ventrac’s export growth was recognized during a ceremony on May 20, 2013 in Washington, D.C. Ventrac was honored to receive the 2013 Presidential “E” Award for Exports documenting the company’s achievement in making significant contribution to the increase of U.S. exports. Accepting the award was the President of Ventrac, Dallas Steiner.
We were honored to have our President, Dallas Steiner, be the featured guest on John Allin’s radio show “Managing Snow and Ice with John Allin.” Managing Snow and Ice is a one hour weekly radio program dedicated to covering issues and topics that affect snow professionals. The host of the show, John Allin, is the original founder of the Snow & Ice management Association (SIMA) and has been a leader in the formation of the Accredited Snow Contractor’s Association (ASCA). With over 30 years in the snow management industry, combined with his vast experience, Allin is recognized as the foremost snow and ice industry consultant in the country today.
John’s interview with Dallas covers a variety of topics ranging from Dallas’ role with Ventrac, International sales and how Ventrac is an ideal piece of sidewalk snow removal equipment for snow contractors. You can hear the interview with Dallas now by clicking on the live recording link below.
Maybe you have heard, and maybe you have not! Ventrac is now in the process of building a new manufacturing facility! The new location is in our current town of Orrville, Ohio, fairly close to where our plant is now. Over the next several weeks and months, my plans are to keep you posted on the progress with a photo blog of sorts. Pictures are sometimes better than words! Since our groundbreaking event on June 26th, 2012, there has been major progress on the construction of the new facility. Earth movers and excavators moved in quickly and in no time there was a shell of the new building. Week by week as the construction continues, it has been exciting to watch the development.
The building will be 116,700 sq ft and once complete, will allow all manufacturing processes and offices to be housed under one roof. We currently operate out of two facilities, a few miles apart from each other. Not always convenient, but we make it work. The new offices and production plant will streamline so many processes. It really is such an exciting time for all of us here at Ventrac.

I just got some new photos in this week, so stay tuned for our next installment!
To be a professional athlete, it takes hard work and dedication. It takes toughness and durability to reach peak performance. Preparation requires research and study to stay on top of the game. Former New York Giants Super Bowl XXV Quarterback, Jeff Hostetler, knows all about what it takes. We recently spoke with Jeff at his home, where he talked with us about his professional career and how he maintains his home and property with a Ventrac tractor.
We have all seen the capabilities of Ventrac equipment, but when you see a Ventrac being used at one of the top golf courses in the country, it brings chills down the spine! Back in September, a few of us from Ventrac were granted an exclusive sneak peek behind the scenes of the Pete Dye Course at French Lick. We were welcomed by an amazing grounds crew that showed us how they used Ventrac and how it handles on a course of this caliber.
Ventrac is the ultimate machine for mowing uneven terrain. The Ventrac Contour Mower Deck will go where other mowers dare not.

Something exciting happened in January at the Deerhurst Resort in Ontario, Canada. Crews were hard at work clearing the frozen bay area for the upcoming Canadian National Pond Hockey Championships. With the help of Ventrac tractors working for hours, the crew had the bay ready for the activities.
