“As store manager I’m responsible for performing and overseeing day-to-day operations and working as both the store and service manager allows me the opportunity to work even more closely with all departments,” said Norris. “It gives me the opportunity to find more effective ways for departments to work together and find solutions that enable us to better serve our customers.”

“I am very excited for our second year of operation in Pocomoke,” said Norris. “The people in Pocomoke are the most important piece to the puzzle when it comes to providing a high level of service for our customers. We have a good group of veteran employees who take pride in the jobs they perform and that’s reflected in our day-to-day operations. We also have outstanding customers and that combination makes me believe we have the opportunity to have a great second year.”
Among the areas of emphasis for the dealership will be service and parts support, along with new and used equipment, and precision agriculture, which Norris said is becoming more and more a standard in farming operations.
“With the agricultural industry constantly changing, precision agriculture has become much more of a necessity than a luxury,” said Norris. “For our customers to fully unlock the potential from the equipment and be as productive, efficient and profitable as possible, it’s important for us to provide top-notch expertise, service and support in the area of precision agriculture.”
