Open House Included Tours at Amerequip

Dozens of people were given tours Saturday of the Amerequip plant in Kiel.  The open house was held to show the recently renovated areas inside the facility, including the new lunchroom which includes a TV and foosball table; a new upstairs conference room; and the spacious and modern training center.  Also shown on the tour were the consolidated offices located upstairs.

The renovations were made without increasing the footprint of the building; instead, some space was taken from the manufacturing area of the facility.  Amerequip operates from the Kiel facility and three other buildings in New Holstein.

Amerequip employee Jeff Reimer demonstrated the reach possible by some of the equipment made at the company.
