2016 NTPDA Trade Show


Last week I attended the 2016 National Tractor Parts Dealers Association Trade Show and Conference in Kansas City Missouri!  It was a great week to network with other companies like ours specializing in replacement parts for tractors and combines! I've been attending the NTPDA conference for almost 20 years and while the group isn't as big as it use to be, it's definitely as passionate about serving the farmer and repair shops with quality parts at quality prices.  It did not disappoint this year either!  There was a full day of marketing training and OSHA updates along with a presentation from Tractor House and their latest technology we all use!  

The main event is the trade show and one of the displayers was Worthington Ag Parts' sister company Parts Express!  The booth looked great as you can see in the photo below!

Here is an interesting podcast about the challenges facing a few us in the ag industry with the reduction in farm income and trying to support our rural based operations!  Michael Libbie from Insight on Business was kind enough to interview all of us! It's titled Business Voice from the NTPDA! 


If you would like to just hear my piece of the interview fast forward to the 16:12 mark!

Great time with great people in a great industry.  We look forward to attending next year and showing off our ever growing parts line!

Thanks for reading my blog!

Best Customers In the World!

I've always said Worthington Ag Parts has the most honest customers in the world - FARMERS!  The following letter came with a returned part owed back to us from 1977.  It arrived at the Worthington store last week.  I have removed the customers name for privacy reasons but what a special person!


Forgot to return a part in 1977 and returned it in 2015 - 38 years later!  We have the best customers in the world!

Thank you for your business and we look forward to serving you in the future!
