Thought I’d give a shout-out today to a local Pella business, Vermeer Manufacturing, which is celebrating its 60th Anniversary of being in business this year.  There is all kinds of Vermeer celebration-related activity going on around town right now, and I also stumbled upon this article about their 60 years in business.

Vermeer probably became famous from its round baling equipment (“Vermeer made the world go round”), but they also make construction equipment, other farm machinery, and trenching and trenchless equipment.  Vermeer is still family owned and is heading into its third generation of family members.  They’ve been on their lean journey since 1997 and could probably use our software…I need to get over there and peddle my wares!
