It is here in the heart of America near
Orrville, Ohio
where family is important and
hard work and innovation
is still seen as a way to get ahead.
It is here
that Venture Products began.
Marvin Steiner's passion for mechanized farming was ignited by the
rationing and shortages of World War II.
The family farm east of Orrville, Ohio became the testing ground for many of his inventions.
Over the course of the next fifteen years, Marvin
and Mary had seven sons.
They loved to help their father with his inventions
and it was a treat
when they got to run the machinery he had created.
Not only did the Steiner boys were learn their fathers trade,
they also learned their fathers work ethic,
his loyalty to God,
and his passion for humanity
which often saw him using his new inventions to help out neighbors in need.
Thus it became a Steiner family tradition
to work at making life simpler
by using
practical engineering,
design ingenuity,
and good old-fashioned common sense.
In the mid-nineteen seventies
the Steiner brothers formed the Steiner Corporation
and over the next fourteen years their company grew
into three major marketing divisions.
A community repair shop
turf equipment, which was sold to a British company in 1988,
agricultural equipment,
which was sold to a group of employees the same year,
and became Venture Products in 1996.
The Steiner brothers soon launched the brand name Ventrac,
and in 1998,
focused their energies on creating the next generation of all wheel drive compact tractors
Since then
this new line of innovative machinery
has captured the imagination of the marketplace.
One key feature that caught the eye of buyers
was the minute mount system.
This gives Ventrac users a choice of more than thirty different attachments,
all of which take a minute or less to attach or detach.
This makes Ventrac tractors extremely versatile
and gives a maximum performance the landscapers,
tree growers, and nurseries,
municipalities
parks and airports,
golf courses and other sports facilities,
homeowners, churches, and universities,
shopping malls,
rental yards, and more.
