Wengers of Myerstown - A Family Affair

Every so often NTPDA does a quick profile of a member.  Last week we asked Molly Wengers LogoDubble 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.)

G1-G2 Spring 2014 PhotoWe 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!

Why I Joined NTPDA

I just got my copy of The Bulletin and that caused me to THINK, really THINK about why in the world I ever joined the National Tractor Parts Dealer Association.  And, it was one word:

Business Social5

While that may have been my motivating factor years ago the reason I stay connected
to NTPDA today is more complex.  Sure, business is part of it and we're grateful to have been the agency of record for NTPDA but...it's more.

You see, I really LIKE the people that belong to this organization.  From the staff, who has always been wonderful to me and our crew, to the Board who changes yet stays committed to the efforts of us all, to the Members who fight like hell on a daily basis to build a life for themselves and their families and my fellow Associate Members who, like me, originally joined to "do business".

Jack McFarlandI have become friends, true friends, with so many of you. We have shared life and death struggles, happy and tearful moments and a drink or three and it has been rewarding and added to my quality of life.

So, that's why I joined NTPDA and why I'm staying.  How about you?

One more thing?  I look forward to seeing you in Memphis next year and here is a place where you can register.

Thanks for reading!

Each week we feature one of our members in the National Tractor Parts Dealer Association.  This week we spotlight Reliable Aftermarket Parts.  Founded in 2009 by Tom “Junior” Salisbury, Reliable Aftermarket Parts, Inc. provides customers with construction and agricultural parts. The company’s mission is to provide customers with quality aftermarket parts that meet and exceed OEM specifications. Reliable Aftermarket Parts strives to offer customers competitive prices with the best availability and shipping worldwide on all of the top named brands as well as hard-to-find construction and agricultural equipment.

Even though the company is very young they have overall 40 years combined experience and continue improving through efficiency. In the beginning, the company started in Tom’s home with only three employees. Shortly after that the business outgrew Tom’s basement and he then purchased the fire hall in Williamston, MI. Due to the high demand and growth of the business, in 2011 Tom moved the company to a larger office building with a warehouse. Shortly, less than a year, they added on to double the size by adding an additional warehouse. While also growing into multiple departments such as sales, accounting, e-commerce, and warehouse with multiple people in each department.

The company’s expedited growth is a direct result of modern technology. Customers can place orders online and is integrated into a system that keeps track of everything from accounting, inventory of parts and tracking information. When Tom started the business out of his house he would take orders and go to the post office to send out the packages personally. Now there are shipping suppliers such as Fed Ex, USPS, and UPS that go directly to the warehouse to pick up and drop off packages.
