RDO Equipment wins 'Best in Class' award
RDO Equipment Co., one of the largest farm equipment dealership groups in North America, has been chosen as the 2009 "Best-in-Class Farm Equipment Dealership of the Year" by Farm Equipment magazine.
The company is headquartered in Fargo.
More than 130 dealerships across North America were nominated for the award.
Farm Equipment presents its "Dealership of the Year" awards annually to farm equipment dealerships in two categories: One for those with $50 million and under in annual revenues and one for dealers generating more than $50 million in annual revenues.
RDO Equipment Co. earned the distinction in the over $50 million category this year not only for its outstanding financial results, but particularly for its employee-training and development programs.
The judges also noted that "RDO Equipment Co. has always invested substantially in training and development of its employees and recently developed the RDO Leadership Institute for current and potential managers."
