There is a new atmosphere at Prairie Implement these days.

Dave Nodland and Duane Wolfe, co-owners of Prairie Implement, are moving forward to expand and diversify their services to the community with area farmers and ranchers. Nodland is optimistic for the future and is working with newly hired employees toward a better working relationship with their customers.

Russ Malzahn has been employed at Prairie Implement for the past 1 1/2 years. He is their new Parts and Service Manager. With 30 years of experience in parts and service under his belt, he brings to the Service department a good knowledge of farm equipment. Russ has moved here from Nebraska and enjoys working for Prairie Implement and living in the area.

Marvin Palacios is fairly new to the shop and has been employed at Prairie Implement for the past seven months. He is a Dealer Certified Auto Technician, which he earned at Universal Tech Graduate School in Houston. He is currently living in Dickinson. He also likes working for the company and will be working on automobiles and pickups. While he does not do rebuilds, Palacios offers a quick turn around on the lighter work.

As the new Sales Manager of Prairie Implement, Scott Stangler brings a new vision to his job. His goal is moving Prairie Implement to the next level. With plans to build a quality website, he has spent the past two weeks doing inventory on the equipment already on site.

Stangler said he believes in building relationships for long term. He is asking that area farmers and ranchers to stop in and give them the opportunity to help them with quality service and a good atmosphere in which to shop. Scott comes from Pennsylvania and previously worked with General Management and Sales positions in the truck industry for the past 25 years.

Nodland followed up with a new working website through a Bobcat provider. “We can do a lot more things than what we have done in the past,” Nodland said.

He is currently talking with two more candidates for hire. They are certified technicians with diesel trucks and equipment. He currently has plans to interview an industrial contractor for sales within the oil industry.

It’s easy to see that Nodland is working hard to provide added services for his customers’ needs at Prairie Implement.
