Vermeer Texas-Louisiana celebrated the grand opening of its newly relocated Waco store with an open house May 5.

Located on 4.1 acres within the city limits of Ross, north of Waco, the new facility provides for additional service bays and an expanded parts warehouse and showroom. With the added space, Vermeer will be able to stock larger pieces of equipment as well as host demonstration and training events.

More than 200 people attended grand opening. In addition to representatives from Vermeer Texas-Louisiana and Vermeer Corporation, personnel from Vactron, McLaughlin, Digital Control, MI SWACO, Baroid and Kennametal were on hand to answer questions from customers and introduce new products.

“We were extremely grateful for the outpouring of support our customer base has shown throughout our relocation,” said Waco Branch Manager Mike Snowden. “The new store will enable us to better support our customers’ needs and we are excited about that opportunity.”
