MOORESVILLE, Ind., January 16, 2012—At a luncheon held at the 20th Annual National No-Tillage Conference, Equipment Technologies was given the Application Equipment Category 2011 Product of the Year Award for its AS720, AS1020 and AS1220 models of self-propelled sprayers. This marks the second consecutive year Equipment Technologies has received this national recognition from No-Till Farmer readers.
"This is an impressive accomplishment for these companies’ products to be recognized as top performers by our readers,” says Darrell Bruggink, executive editor and publisher of No-Till Farmer. “No-tillers probably have the most critical eye when it comes to the performance of products, as they put them through challenging conditions. These manufacturers should be very proud to have received this recognition from our readers.”
According to CEO of Equipment Technologies, Matt Hays, “We love no-tillers. To receive this award two years in a row now further validates the Apache as the businessman’s sprayer. No-tillers are focused on growing the value of their operation over the long haul and know how to invest accordingly, that’s why the 20 Series Apache sprayer and no-till practices go hand-in-hand. I would also like to emphasize that our product is the result of a continual team effort from our employees, dealers and customers to have the very best product possible.”
Equipment Technologies is the largest independently-owned manufacturer of self-propelled sprayers in North America. Operating from its 146,000 square foot headquarters in Mooresville, Ind., the company distributes its sprayers throughout North America, Ukraine and Australia through a network of independent dealers.
