Every so often NTPDA does a quick profile of a member. Last week we asked Molly Dubble if she would check in with the Wenger Family of Wengers of Myerstown a company that has been serving the agricultural and construction industries since 1946. We thought the stories she shared with us is typical of a closely held family company and we're proud they are members of the National Tractor Parts Dealer Association.
"Last week I had the chance to speak to Lloyd Wenger. His father, Carl Wenger founded the business in 1946. Lloyd is the oldest of the seven Wenger children, all of whom are actively involved in the family owned and operated business. (Photo of Carl and his wife Margaret with the family.)
We talked about several different topics but two stories really resonated with me. Lloyd was sharing about the work he does selling equipment and parts and online. He told me that Wengers of Myerstown has been rated by over 5,800 people on a ratings website and the company has received a 100% Customer Satisfaction Rating. That says so much about how the family and the company take care of their customers.
He then told me about a recent trip to the bank during which the bank teller thanked him for being a loyal patron of the bank since 1950. Sixty-five years with the same bank! That says something about loyalty.
I also spoke to the youngest of the Wenger children, Rose. Rose oversees the Human Resources tasks for the business and while we were talking she shared the stories of Daryl, Donnie and Leon. All are employees that have been with the company for over 35 years. Leon’s story goes even further. His father Paul worked at Wengers of Myerstown for nearly 25 years and Leon’s son, Kurtis began working for the business over five years ago.
So why share these stories?
It’s anecdotes like these that tell the story of Wengers of Myerstown. It is an organization that, above all else, values its customers, business partners, and employees. Most importantly, it does so while providing quality construction and agricultural equipment and parts as well as machining services and quality used motorcycles. Wengers of Myerstown is pleased to be able to provide these products and services to our customers and our friends, the members of NTPDA.
Thanks Molly we sure enjoyed learning more about the family and the business!
