The chief executive officers of John Deere and RDO Equipment Company addressed employees in Bismarck on Wednesday.
The stop was a part of John Deere CEO Sam Allen’s weeklong trip touring stores through the upper Midwest.
Allen, who was joined by RDO’s CEO Christi Offutt, met with customer Badlands Power Fuels, a drilling fluids and crude oil transportation company in Watford City, before traveling to Bismarck.
Allen and Offutt thanked employees for their hard work, general manager Derek Shaffer said.
“Business is up,” he said. “The agricultural economy is strong in North Dakota as well as construction industry.”
RDO has 75 employees in the agriculture and construction equipment industry at its Bismarck location.
