CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind. — Bane-Welker Equipment LLC has announced that the La Crosse, Ind., location is now a full Case IH dealership offering parts, sales, service and precision farming. In addition, that location will now service H&P customers as a part of a consolidation effort between Bane-Welker and H&P Sales & Service.
Last year, Bane-Welker reached an agreement with the owners of Mitchell & Schoppel to partner at the La Crosse location. Beginning Jan. 1, La Crosse is officially a full service Case IH dealership and offers all the services of the other 12 locations. Employees at H&P are moving to La Crosse and customers will now also be able to visit La Crosse for their parts, sales, service and precision farming needs.
"This will benefit these communities and customers can continue to depend upon us as we will provide greater equipment, parts and service availability and knowledge," stated Phil Bane, co-owner and CEO of Bane-Welker Equipment. "We understand the needs of customers and we look forward to continuing to serve this region of the state."
Customers can count on the same great service that all of the other Bane-Welker Equipment locations provide; a large selection of short line and complimentary equipment offerings, a dedicated grower spray center, an in-house RTK network and the addition of the Bane-Welker Select brand. Bane-Welker Select offers competitive prices on items like DEF, oil, batteries, tillage wear items and much more.
Many improvements have been made to the La Crosse facilities in the last few months. Along with transforming the interior and exterior of the facilities, customers will now see a 12,000 sq. ft. service facility equipped to handle all equipment. These improvements allow Bane-Welker to better serve the nearby community and surrounding areas. In addition, technology updates have been added to increase the effectiveness of the parts, service and sales departments. The La Crosse store will sell and service the following brands; Case IH, Cub Cadet, Kill Bros, Kinze, Krause, Liebrecht, ThunderCreek, Unverferth and Woods.
Also new to many of the customers in the area is the Bane-Welker website, mobile app and social media outlets. New customers can view the entire Bane-Welker inventory by visiting www.bane-welker.com.
