PELLA, Iowa - A company which started making farm implements in a farm shed fifty years ago, was recognized recently by Construction Equipment magazine for introducing three of the top 100 most significant products of 1997 for American construction and related industries. All three products were introduced by Vermeer's Underground Division.

The award-winning products were selected from a list of over 3,000 new construction-related products. The prized products are a computerized steering system, a directional boring system and a track trencher.

Family-owned Vermeer which operates four manufacturing plants - all located in its home base of Pella - has over 2,400 employees.
