There’s always excitement over new things, whether the latest smartphone or piece of equipment. But equally important as it is to celebrate what’s new is to acknowledge the value of what has been around for a long time.
In that spirit, RDO Equipment Co.’s top moments from May can be summed up as a mix of celebrating what’s new while also honoring longtime team members and service.
