(L-R): Jamie Henniger, Stephannie Keaton, Abbie Keaton, Jessica Base, Scott George and Pam Makin made up the welcoming committee greeting guests to Hall Industrial’s open house event.
Hall Industrial Company held an open house on Sept. 11 at its 15,000 sq. ft. facility in Northwood, Ohio. The event has become an annual tradition over the past eight years and is designed to provide information about the latest in equipment innovations while thanking loyal customers with food and entertainment.
Founded in 1965 by Fred Hall, the company changed focus from fluid power to the aggregate industry in 1999 when Bob Keaton and Jay Zvanovec took over the operation.
In 2002, Midwest Mine Services LLC was created as a second company providing installation services of the equipment that Hall Industrial sells. Together, the companies serve quarries, demolition contractors, recycling operations and other aggregate, topsoil and mulch businesses, supplying equipment as well as installation, maintenance and repair services throughout Ohio.
Products range from crushers, screeners, shredders and trommels and they are the authorized dealers for Extec, Fintec, Lippmann, Sandvik and Cemco.
Midwest Mine Services LLC has six service vehicles and a 12 man crew that can be dispatched 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. According to Bob Keaton, knowledge and training are the key to serving their clients. All of their service technicians are MSHA trained and are inspected every time they’re in a plant. Working on everything from installation, to scheduled maintenance, they can work on anybody’s portable equipment. Their service area for Sandvik is Ohio and Lower Michigan.
Steve Bogoski of Old Castle who stopped by the open house to enjoy the festivities said that they have a 15 year relationship with Hall Industrial & Midwest Mine Services LLC. He went on to say that, in terms of product knowledge and service, he feels they’re one of the best in the business.
While much of the attention during the open house was on the equipment on display, local favorites Colin Dussault’s Blues Project provided entertainment for an estimated crowd of 400 to 500 attendees. After serving a dinner of steak with all of the fixings, attendees enjoyed Casino night activities and were awarded door prizes.
