Lockwood Manufacturing has expanded its sales and service reach for customers in the Columbia Basin of Washington and Oregon.
Collaborating with Double L, Larry Benzel will represent both companies as the area’s regional salesman.
“Lockwood and Double L enjoy a great working relationship and we are proud to work with Double L to better serve the potato growers of the Columbia Basin,” said Dan Birrenkott, president of Crary Industries and Lockwood Manufacturing.
Benzel brings with him over 40 years of industry experience in the Washington area, most of those years with Evergreen Implement. As a teenager, Benzel first worked on Lockwood equipment for his father, who worked for Lockwood equipment, reporting directly to Mr. Lockwood.
“The entire Double L family welcomes Benzel to the team,” said Chris Hunsaker, president of Double L. “We’re looking forward to our collaboration with Lockwood to offer an experienced sales representative for potato growers in the entire region.”
“I feel I have a lot to offer our growers in the basin with all my history and experience in the industry,” said Benzel. “Being able to combine that experience with great brands like Lockwood and Double L — we have a bright future.”
