Lodermeier Implement Earns Global Award


Lodermeier’s Inc. was honored with the Mathews Company’s coveted North American Dealer of the Year award for 2023. The award recognizes their top-selling dealership and a large traveling trophy was presented to Lodermeier’s reps during a dealer sales meeting and incentive reward trip at Hotel Xcaret Mexico in January.

The Mathews Company (M-C) began operations in 1954 and started manufacturing continuous flow grain dryers in 1957. Their motto is “Make it easy to operate, make it safe and make it last” which was coined by founder, B.C. “Matt” Mathews. M-C is currently owned by his son, daughter, grandson and granddaughter. Nick Kloos represented the company and was able to answer questions and visit with guests during Lodermeier’s customer appreciation event on February 16th.

Based in Crystal Lake, Illinois, M-C has dealers across the United States and in Canada. Lodermeier’s is one of about 30 dealers across Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin. While some dealers have been going out of business, Lodermeier’s continues to grow. They are not the largest dealer but earned the recognition based on total sales, all made within a 125 mile radius of Goodhue. Troy Voth, Dustin Luhman and Tim Watson travel up to two-and-a-half hours within that radius to find potential customers. Voth says they are on track to earn the award again in 2024 but can only sell as many dryers as they will be able to install. Sales are done in the off-season with the team acting as project managers when the units are set up on farms in the Summer and maintained before and into the harvest.

Lodermeier’s grain business began with a Butler Manufacturing equipment contract in 1963. They offer some of the best and most innovative grain equipment in the industry to dry and protect your harvested grains. This includes the M-C line of equipment known for building durable, high quality equipment designed to give years of trouble-free service to the customer. Lodermeier’s experienced grain equipment team members will help you find and design a system that fits your needs.
