Degelman Industries is pleased to announce the retirement of Rick Abel – Territory Manager – Degelman USA.
Rick’s career as a traveling Territory Manager in the Farm Equipment Wholesale industry began in 1975 with Wil-Rich Company. He joined Degelman USA in 1979 and travelled exclusively throughout North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota where he developed many long lasting friendships with his Dealers. He went on to be a successful independent factory representative for 12 years and then returned to Degelman where he finished with 25 years of service.
Zlatko began his first day at Degelman Industries Ltd. on August 13th, 1974. His career with the company spanned nearly 42 years.
Jack and Paul Degelman both commend Zlatko with his unmatched dedication and and leadership qualities. During his tenure with Degelman he was a “model employee” – his attendance history speaks for itself. Our attendance history on the current system only goes back to 2001. Since then, Zlatko has missed .25 days of work. That’s 2.5 hours of work in the past 15 years!
Degelman Industries launched two new products at the 2016 "Canada's Farm Progress Show" in Regina June 15th. The Company was extremely pleased with the general acceptance and excitement at the customer level of these machines.
STRAWMASTER PRO 120ft - People could not believe the size of this machine. 120 feet wide 30" harrow tines equipped with Tungsten Carbide Endura-tips and the new Hydra-lift linkage system. This machine can be used for both harrowing and light tillage.
