TNT Equipment, a Case IH and New Holland farm equipment dealership in Sandusky, Mich., experienced facility damage in a large fire this morning, but hopes to be back up and running by the end of the week.
“Our existing shop was a total loss, but we have another building on site that was going to be used as an alternate shop anyways,” Paul Lamm, parts and precision farming manager for TNT Equipment, told the Times Herald.
It took 12 fire departments 3 hours to battle the blaze, which destroyed the 80 by 200 foot shop where several tractors and combines were being worked on. The parts area, showroom and offices were untouched by the fire and no one was injured.
TNT Equipment opened its doors in 1983 as a New Holland dealership and brought on the Case IH line in 2000. The dealership currently employees 27 people.
