As of December 1, 1975, Foster Will, Allen Niemi, and Jerry Andres have acquired control of the former Lindquist Implement Company, and will operate the firm as Owen Implement, Incorporated.
Prior to the Lindquist ownership, the implement business was owned by Foster Will and known as Will Implement Company, and served the area for more than 40 years. Mr. Will is a long established and respected implement dealer in the area and his partners are too, well known and qualified. Mr. Niemi is a native of the community and a most successful farmer, while Mr. Anders is of Eau Claire, but has a background of valuable experience in the farm implement business. He was associated with New Holland Company for eight years, and with Tobola Implement Company of Cadott for six years.
The firm will continued to handle most of the recognized franchises. Will Implement Co. was known for and are rapidly replenishing their inventory to meet the farm needs of the community.
While the stock is low they took advantage of the situation by repainting the store's interior with blue woodwork, white walls and ceiling, and a red floor.
