Vermeer Corporation breaks ground on new parts distribution center
This morning, Vermeer President and CEO Jason Andringa and Executive Vice President, Forage and Lifecycle and Chief Marketing Officer Mark Core broke ground on a new parts distribution center (PDC) at the Vermeer campus in Pella, Iowa.

This expanded PDC will add 100 new jobs to the area and represents Vermeer’s commitment to deliver business confidence to dealers and customers around the world.

“From setting record million-dollar days to getting the parts that matter to our customers on the jobsite, the Parts Distribution Center team continues to deliver business confidence to our dealers and customers through their important work,” said Andringa. “It’s a great time to work at Vermeer. We are proud to invest in this 312,000-square-foot facility to enable that work to continue long into the future.”

The investment in this new space comes as demand for Vermeer equipment and parts has grown. The Iowa Economic Development Authority board approved a $1.3 million sales tax rebate to build the new PDC facility, renovate the existing PDC into a facility dedicated to team member trainings and equip the building currently rented by Lely to house customer and dealer training events.

“In 2021, we are at nearly three times the parts sales we were just a little over a decade ago,” stated Core. “With all this growth, we understand the stress and pressure put on our team working in the footprint of our current Parts Distribution Center. This is why we’re excited to invest in and expand the team.”
