CRAWFORDSVILLE, IN — Bane-Welker Equipment is proud to announce the completion of a nearly two year journey to identify the company’s values. The newly cemented values are intended to showcase its unmatched culture and business model to provide unparallelled value to customers. As an employee-owned organization, Bane-Welker looks to provide a foundation that can withstand expected agricultural changes for years to come. The search for clear value statements came during continued growth and expansion. “We hope we are always known for quality products and superior service. These values signify more of a pledge — Bane-Welker is dedicated to go beyond the everyday expectation. To us, it’s not just a mission, but a way of life. As we continue to grow and expand, we want every employee-owner and every customer to know what we’re about,” Jason Bane, Bane-Welker president said.

“This is an exciting time for Bane-Welker Equipment,” he continued. “In 2020, we took a step back and evaluated what has been central to our success, and what will also be the core of achieving continued success. We know our company was built on a foundation driven by our employees and what they bring to the table.”

Bane-Welker asked their employees what they believe makes their company unique and successful — the answers were compiled into three pillars.

Trust. Bane-Welker commits to customers that they will provide honest guidance, listen to needs and support you in your contributions. Each and every team member builds credibility in each customer interaction. Instead of committing to doing the best job possible, employees work to deliver beyond expectation — because through proof, trust begins to build.

Respect. Bane-Welker’s mutual support amongst employees allows the team to come together to build upon the previous day’s duties. Whether behind the scenes or with the customer, each team member is held accountable to reach daily and future goals. They respect their customers as the central point of why their business is, and will continue to be, successful.

Teamwork. Continuing to grow and expand as a company wouldn’t be possible without teamwork across every store, every department and every territory. Their team is here to deliver the highest value and best experience to every customer, and does this through dedicated teamwork.

Bane-Welker’s recent expansion in Ohio has allowed them to reach additional customers in 15 total locations spread across both Indiana and Ohio. Bane-Welker has added three new locations: Circleville, Utica and Plain City to service customers in the Ohio area.

“We will continue to grow, because of our strong foundation. Our mission is to not only provide innovative equipment, services and technological solutions to equip our customers, but to provide fulfilling careers for our employee-owners,” says Bane.
