After over three years of planning and construction during the past 12 months, Evolution Ag announced the opening of its new dealership south of Delaware at 13275 US 42, Plain City (intersection of Jerome road and SR 42).
Doug Loudenslager, Principal and one of the owners said that the 45,000 square foot facility has been designed to serve not only the agricultural community but the suburban homeowner as well.
“Our principle business is to provide agricultural producers the Case IH line of agricultural equipment, parts and service support required to profitably produce and harvest a crop today. We provide homeowners the tools they need to manage their mini-farm and landscapes,” Loudenslager said.
The dealership sells and services lawn mowers, tractors and utility vehicles through Gravely, Kioti, and Grasshopper. The dealership is now considered a full-line sales and service center for Stihl handheld power tools and is an authorized Gold Dealer for the Big Green Egg line of smoker/grill. In addition to Case IH, the company will be carrying MacDon, Geringhoff, Great Plains, Unverferth and J&M agricultural equipment lines.
The dealership will be home to a regional training center for Case IH. Loudenslager said technicians and other Case IH personnel from throughout the country will be coming to the new facility for technical training on the full line of equipment. Steve Hayes, a former Field Service Manager and trainer for Case IH was recently hired by Evolution Ag to lead the training effort.
“This expansion will allow us to better serve our customers with service, parts, technical support and equipment. The Delaware facility had served us well for many years but could no longer accommodate the large agricultural equipment needed in today’s agriculture.” Loudenslager said.
The existing Delaware facility will be maintained as an outdoor power equipment center servicing the Kubota, Grasshopper, Gravely, Stihl and Big Green Egg lines. Customers visiting the new dealership will find a state of the art equipment and service center with energy efficiency and conservation in mind. Loudenslager said the wash bay captures the water, oil and debris, and processes it before being reused in the cleaning process.
An added feature is a toy tractor and equipment display with over 250 pieces on loan from the Don Loudenslager Trust.
“My father collected toys for over 40 years. Since his passing we have been looking for a way to share a portion of his collection. He would be exceptionally proud to have his toys in a place that others can enjoy.” Loudenslager said.
In addition to its new Plain City location Evolution Ag has dealership facilities in Circleville, Delaware, Utica, Upper Sandusky and Lisbon. More information can be found on its website www.evolutionagllc.com.
