Waitt Equipment Sales will hold a grand opening of its first Ohio store on Wednesday in Hardin County.
Waitt Ohio Equipment Sales is located on state Routes 309 and 235, south of Ada. Its parent company is a 30-year old business selling and servicing specialized agricultural equipment. The company currently has a location in Cicero, Ind., that services all of Indiana and Ohio, but has not had an Ohio store. Company officials state Ada was selected because they see it as “an excellent place to locate given its central location in the breadbasket of Ohio agricultural production.” The Ada location will service all of Ohio.
The grand opening is from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, with a ribbon-cutting at 11 a.m.
Waitt sells Apache brand self propelled agricultural sprayers and Schaben brand pull type sprayers. At the Waitt Ohio location, they will specialize in large pull type New Leader spreaders typically used in the application of fertilizer, lime and chicken litter. Additionally, the company will sell a New Leader-Apache machine that is a very unique self propelled sprayer and spreader unit capable of doing both jobs with one power unit.
Along with the above equipment lines, Waitt Ohio Equipment Sales will offer several lines of grain handling equipment including Sudenga, Brandt, Baldor, and Honeyville.
