Vermeer Texas – Louisiana, with 12 locations across Texas and south Louisiana, celebrated the grand opening of a new facility in Amarillo, Texas on Oct. 16. The new facility replaces the location on the southeast side of the city that had been open since 2007.
Located on six acres on the south side of Amarillo directly off Interstate 27, the 15,000-sq-ft state-of-the-art facility offers larger service bays, additional parts storage and a meeting room for special events. The larger facility will allow them to stock more equipment as well as host demonstrations and training.

In addition to the team from Vermeer Texas-Louisiana, several vendors including McLaughlin, MI SWACO and Railhead were on hand to support the new facility. Guests from Vermeer Corp. included then CEO Mary Andringa and president Jason Andringa who made comments to the guests about the company’s roots in agriculture.
