In 1954, Ellens Equipment started in the city of McBain . It's founder, June Ellens, purchased the Allis-Chalmers equipment business from Vander Woude Motor Sales which had been selling automobiles and Allis-Chalmers equipment. The new found business was located in the rear of the McBain Hardware store.
In 1968, Ellens Equipment moved into their first building, located on M-66, our present location. In the early 1970's, Ellens Equipment expanded its offering to include Ford and New Holland equipment.
In the mid 90's, the Allis-Chalmers equipment contract was discontinued and Ellens Equipment Inc. became focused on their New Holland equipment. The business changed hands from father to son Don in 1993. It soon became evident that the business had out grown its current facility. In August 1999, the service department addition was added on to the existing building and the parts showroom was remodeled.
It's 2010, Ellens Equipment Inc. is still growing by adding to our long list of products. In September , Ellens Equipment Inc. was awarded the contract to sell the New Holland FR9000 Series Self-Propelled Forage Harvestors.
The staff at Ellens Equipment Inc. continues to provide their customers with excellent sales and service, something we take pride in. Our customer satisfaction is largely due to being blessed with talented employees. After half a decade, God continues to bless our efforts here and for that we are grateful.
