Company Celebrates 60th Anniversary, Welcomes Guests from Around the World
It was two days of excitement as Morbark, LLC, welcomed about 250 customers, members of its authorized dealer network, and other guests from 15 countries for its 11th Demo Days event on September 28-29. This year Morbark celebrates its 60th anniversary and highlighted that history throughout the event. In fact, one of Morbark’s first Eeger Beever™ brush chippers, built within the first six months of production in 1980, was refurbished and on display.
Morbark has a world-class dealer network, and the company’s Demo Days give their customers, as well as the other attendees, the opportunity to not only watch the equipment in action, but also meet the people who build and support the equipment as they see firsthand the manufacturing processes utilized. Events included factory tours, networking opportunities, vendor booths, and a chance to see the equipment up close.
Thursday saw attendees learning about Tier 4 Final engines, financing, Morbark factory training, as well as the advantages of using Morbark parts, and much more! Demo Days participants also had the opportunity to learn about Association of Equipment Manufacturers’ “I Make America” program. I Make America is a grassroots campaign that was launched in September 2010 to dramatically improve American manufacturing policies to create more jobs in the U.S. and keep our economy competitive with other countries. Morbark has been named among the campaign’s Gold-level supporters since 2013.
