Vermeer High Plains has been selling heavy equipment in Nebraska since 1979 when Vermeer Equipment of Nebraska Inc. was established in Lincoln, NE. The company recently recognized the opportunity to further expand by moving into the Omaha area, and Prairie Construction was honored to be chosen for the project.
The company sells new and used heavy equipment – everything from agricultural machinery to utility installation, pipeline, recycling and tree care machinery, as well as a variety of vehicles. The addition of a second location in Nebraska signals not only the success of the company, but their commitment to further growth in the region as well. A site in Papillion, NE was chosen for the brand new 17,000 square-foot facility, and we broke ground on the project in November, 2017.
Designs for the new building include drive-thru bays, and bases for maintenance and service of vehicles and machinery of various sizes, as well as an equipment washing bay. Three bridge cranes will be housed within the facility and utilized for safe, easy access to large equipment.
“We have been so pleased with Prairie Construction,” said Kevin Klein, president of Vermeer High Plains. “They run their business the way we run ours, they have been organized and professional from the first time we met with them.”
The new facility will include a two-story office space with upper-level training rooms. The training space will accommodate groups as large as 40 which will allow customers to come to the facility.
We recently installed the steel structure for the facility, and we can see the design starting to take shape. We look forward to sharing the progress of this exciting project with you until the anticipated completion date in July 2018.
“We have been so impressed with Steve and his team throughout the process,” said Kleine. “We would recommend their entire team, including the sub-contractors, to anyone looking for a quality construction company.”
