Thanks to Excel Industries, and Taylor Redding for Hosting a Plant Tour (December 9th)

Taylor Redding (Chapter VP) set up a tour of the Excel Plant in Hesston, KS for this month’s Chapter meeting. We were able to learn a lot about the history of Excel, and the process of building the Hustler and Big Dog Mowers, which are made at the plant. Taylor discussed the various processes and highlighted the HSE accomplishments that have been made in the previous several years at the plant. The tour was well attended, and appreciated by everyone who attended.
