Personality Profi le of Land Pride


A Division of Great Plains Mfg., Inc., Salina, Kansas


Since 1986, Land Pride has provided quality farm and landscape implements, as well as a full line of skid-steer attachments and zero- turn mowers. As a division of Great Plains Manufacturing, our company took root 10 years earlier, when Founder Roy Applequist fi rst showed his innovative seeder design to dealers and farmers throughout Kansas. While we’ve since grown to be one of the largest and most diversified independent implement manufacturers today, our small company values remain — but with “big-com- pany” product development and resources. And not only do we remember the how’s and why’s of what grew us from those humble beginnings, but especially the “who” — the dealers who stood behind our products and actively promoted them to their customers. As a privately-owned company that is still guided by its founder, you can rest assured that our compass is set on the best long-term interest of all stakeholders; not the short-term gains of investors. Our in-house diversified and experienced management committee can respond and make decisions quickly while still staying personally connected to the dealer network.


In 2007, our progressive marketing alliance with Kubota Tractor Corp. brought a new level of performance-matched implements for its dealers and customers. It’s a great relation- ship that has resulted in more, and better, products to market.


Our commitments to you are simple. We want to get to know you. Our people are acces- sible so you can get the answers you need. We’ll adjust our fl exible manufacturing process to respond to customer demands. Our own trucks will deliver equipment on a timely basis. And from your local territory manager to the folks at our Kansas-based offi ces and plants, you’ll join a team that’ll go to bat for you to give you every opportunity to win.


We’ll be a partner you can count on. For our next chapter, we intend to continue to lead in new product development (more than 65 new products and 250 different models since 2008) and to pursue additional groups of prod- ucts. Come join us!
