Hoober, Inc. has joined the Lanco Mfg. dealership network and will represent the company's complete line of lime, litter and fertilizer spreaders.
"We're really happy about adding Lanco spreaders to the equipment we offer our customers," said Chuck Hoober of Hoober, Inc. "From the quality of the design and construction, to delivering a superior lime and litter spread pattern, Lanco spreaders appeal to farmers in our region. In fact, a number of our customers have told us they thought we should add them to our equipment lineup because of Lanco's superior spreader quality and service."
Founded in 2000 by Sam Stoltzfoos, Lanco Mfg. is based in Bird-in-Hand, Pa., and distributes products throughout the United States and Canada. The fact that both Lanco and Hoober are already familiar with each other and are so close to one another will be beneficial, according to Wayne Altland, Lanco sales manager.
"We've known Hoober, Inc. for a long time and we know their reputation for having quality products, excellent service and outstanding employees," said Altland. "We have used some of their expertise in equipping our spreaders with variable rate controls and precision spreading," said Altland. "The closeness of Hoober headquarters and our production facility will allow us to interact quickly as we work together."
Another important factor for Lanco was the location of Hoober stores in the mid-Atlantic region.
"Hoober's presence in Pennsylvania, the Delmarva peninsula and eastern Virginia make this a perfect marriage, because those are areas with a lot of heavy users of litter spreaders," said Altland.
For Hoober, Inc., the decision to add Lanco spreaders is a very important part of the dealership's focus on customer service.
"When we look at adding a new line of equipment, we want to feel confident that the equipment is going to benefit our customers," said Hoober. "We're confident that Lanco spreaders are going to be very popular with the ag producers in our region because of how they perform in the field."
