Evergreen business rooted in company culture
EVERGREEN Journal — Paced Growth is an essential principle of successful Evergreen businesses. While growth can be organic or accomplished through new ventures, some Evergreen companies will choose to grow through acquisition.
Tom Rosztoczy, CEO of Stotz Equipment, has guided his Evergreen company to grow from three John Deere dealerships in Arizona to 25 stores in eight Western states over the past 20 years. In his presentation from the Tugboat Institute Summit 2018, Tom shares the key factors of that successful acquisition journey and the core values that are integrated into each new acquisition to continue to propel his Evergreen business forward.

Ag Day highlights economic value
Hosted in partnership with California Women for Agriculture and the California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom, Ag Day brings farmers and ranchers together with legislators, government leaders and the public to inform and educate about the value of agriculture to California's economic landscape.
Ag Day 2018, held March 20 at the Capital, offered equipment dealers an opportunity to demonstrate the tools available to consumers to diagnose and repair their equipment. Dealers used the day to discuss the negative impacts of right-to-repair legislation introduced this session in California. John Deere and Valley Truck & Tractor were on hand with two 6R tractors to show how diagnostics tools empower consumers.
