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.
Read more about the groundbreaking and see computer rendered drawings of the new building on our Ventrac Press page.
I just got some new photos in this week, so stay tuned for our next installment!
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.
