12,000 Square Foot Expansion at New Holland Tri-County Completed

The Wells County Chamber of Commerce and Ambassadors welcomed a 12,000 square foot expansion at New Holland Tri-County at 2675 S State Rd 1 in Bluffton on December 9th. The Straeter family purchased the business seven years ago and they have experienced a large volume of customer and equipment growth in the past 5 years. “We ran out of space with the development of the new, larger, stronger, technological equipment and the required dealer standards have specific machines for repairs,” says Eric Straeter, Group Operations Manager.

“This investment in our company is an investment in our community. We want the community to know that we are partners and will be here for a long time. Our business is not all about the sale, but most importantly the service. We take pride in the ability to work on customer needs and expectations quickly and efficiently,” Straeter says.

The Straeter Family owns a total of 7 New Holland Tri-County stores such as Bluffton, two in Rochester, Rossville, Logansport, Greentown, and Centerville. Ken Mast, Store Manager in Bluffton, has over 27 years of experience in agriculture and sales. “Our business is not just about the farm equipment but we also sell lawn mowers, skid loaders, tractors, and even solar panels. We provide service and parts for municipalities as well. We have a good group of employees and they look out for the best interest in the company and our customer needs,” says Mast.

New Holland Rochester works with local Optimist Club on Pumpkin Project

The Rochester Optimist Club is a part of Optimist International, whose motto is Friend of Youth. With that mindset, the Rochester Optimist Club has a project of raising and selling pumpkins each year in order to raise money to support youth projects and programs in the community. New Holland Rochester owners Jim, Matt, and Jesse Straeter are all members of the local Rochester Optimist Club who work on helping with the pumpkin project.

With the help of the Optimist Club members, youth groups who work with us to raise money for their clubs, and the people who purchase our pumpkins from our stand on 9th St. near the golf course, we are able to give back over $20,000 each year to our youth. Thanks for everyone’s help in making this year a success so far, and visit our stand for some great looking pumpkins if you haven’t yet!
