Indiana Farm Equipment Dealer Becomes Employee Owned

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleGen Z Emerging as Food InfluencersNext articleEU Delays Ruling on Bayer-Monsanto Merger, Again Gary Truitt SHARE By Gary Truitt – Jan 31, 2018 Bane-Welker Equipment, one of the Mid-West region’s largest Case IH dealers, recently announced that it’s now a 100% employee-owned company through an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) Trust. The news was officially unveiled during a companywide meeting to commemorate the historic occasion. As an employee-owned company, Bane-Welker Equipment will continue to operate under the same business model and management structure. Over a storied career spanning more than five decades, Bane-Welker has grown from one location in Wingate, Indiana, to ten locations in Indiana and three in Ohio. Along the way, the organization has received numerous achievements for its commitment to growth. The company is among the largest CNH dealers in the United States. “While growing from four employees in 1967 to more than 230 today, our promise remains the same; to bring Bane-Welker customers the very best our brands have to offer,” stated Phil Bane, CEO of Bane-Welker Equipment. “We bring decades of knowledge and experience right to the farm, and we are deeply rooted in the communities we serve. We offer a broader base of parts, service and farm equipment, and our main goal is to achieve 100% customer satisfaction every day.Both the Bane and Welker families are committed to keeping the legacy alive while looking forward to the future. “Our current family ownership was concerned about how we would maintain our legacy, while being cognizant of our succession planning as we move into the 4th generation of family ownership,” explained Bane. “By making the transition to an employee-owned organization, we are grateful to be rewarding our employees for their countless contributions to customers’ successes, while empowering them to play an integral role in our shared future and making sure the Bane-Welker brand continues for generations to come.”An ESOP is an employee benefit plan, which provides company stock to employees as part of their retirement benefit plan. By becoming 100% ESOP-owned, all company stock is now held in trust by the ESOP.“This is an exciting time for Bane-Welker Equipment, a milestone that ensures our unmatched culture and business model will be upheld by the next generation,” said Jason Bane, Owner and Sales Manager. “For our valued customers, it means we will continue our commitment to serving our customers with quality products and superior service; today, tomorrow and into the future. We hereby pledge to go beyond what is normally expected of us, so that this mission is not merely a statement, but a way of life.”Bane-Welker Equipment is a 51-year-old agriculture equipment company representing Case IH and other complimentary brands. Bane-Welker offers new and used equipment, parts, sales, service, precision farming, online parts sales, and customer support. The company operates 10 stores in Indiana including Crawfordsville, La Crosse, Lebanon, Remington, Terre Haute, Pendleton, Plymouth, Winamac, and Wingate, and three stores in Ohio, including Eaton, Wilmington, and Georgetown.

He was moving ahead full speed with an acting career when he had an encounter with God and chose to follow his heart to pursue revival for his generation.But then a second serious revelation in Ahn’s life soon took place—Christian ministry and the world of entertainment did not have to be mutually exclusive.“What the Lord has beautifully done,” says Ahn, “is allow me to step out again to pursue my passion in the industry as an artist. Now, more than acting, I have a heart for writing, directing and producing.”On December 22, worshippers at HRock will have a chance to witness that merger of callings. Ahn’s short play will feature six actors and will last about 15 minutes.“It’s a Gospel that’s done in a creative way,” Ahn explained.“Really, all the glory goes to the Lord,” says Ahn. “I got my inspiration from the Creator, so I just wanted to make sure that all the glory goes to Him.”HRock is located at the historic Ambassador Auditorium, 131 South Saint John Avenue.

In addition to providing quality entertainment for the community, the proposed business plan, conceived by lawyer and theater producer Jackie Brenneman, will keep rental rates lower, providing an affordable venue for artists to share their work.This proposal has been presented to the new owners of the building and they have expressed interest. Now Norton and his team are reaching out to the community for the financial help to bring their vision of the Rialto to life.Norton is also the executive director of the Los Angeles Historic Theatre Foundation, a nationally recognized advocacy group. In this position he has consulted with successful historic theatre operators all over the country, many in smaller, less affluent communities than South Pasadena.He is confident that what has been done so many times on other cities can happen here. “South Pasadena is the perfect location for a historic theatre like the Rialto to be restored and revitalized,” said Norton. “This is a community that treasures history and supports the arts. The Rialto will once again be a place that every generation can enjoy. Children can go to kiddie matinees with friends, teens can go to after-school arts classes, and adults can enjoy classic movies, live music and theatre in a fun and unique environment. Our goal is to present something different almost every night of the week. We will listen to our audience and there will be something for everyone at the Rialto.”A conceptual proposal of what the Rialto Theatre could look like some day was was also presented in June to the Cultural Heritage Commission (CHC) by Lance Aslpaugh of Vintage Cinemas.At the time, South Pasadena City Manager Sergio Gonzalez stressed that it is only a “conceptual” look and not meant as a formal presentation.Following his presentation, Aslpaugh received feedback from CHC members as he hopes to sign a longterm lease with the new owners, SLH Investments, to operate the historic building. He stressed that the concepts were “preliminary in design.”Aslpaugh outlined a renovation plan, calling for two to three state-of-the-art screening rooms seating 50 to 100 in each, and a renovated main auditorium seating 375, using the upper balcony as well as a portion of the existing main floor seating area.

Norton, founder of the non-profit Friends of the Rialto, has been advocating for the Rialto for more than 3 decades and is spearheading this proposal.The new owners are planning to do the restoration of the exterior, and they are looking for organizations to lease the building who will fund the improvements and restoration of the interior.

Chopra (For VKC Law Office) has arrayed The Election Commission of India and State Election Commission as party respondents.It may be noted that on Friday (28th October), citing repeated poll code breach by Kamal Nath, the Election Commission of India had issued an order stating “…for repeated violation of Model Code of Conduct and for completely disregarding the advisory issued to him, the Commission hereby revokes the status of leader of the political party (Star Campaigner) of Kamal Nath, Ex-Chief Minister, Madhya Pradesh, with immediate effect for the current Bye-elections of Legislative Assembly of Madhya Pradesh”The Election Commission, in its order, had further said it has taken action against the Congress leader over his remark calling CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan, “mafia”, “nautanki kalaakar” and “milawat khor” on October 13.It may be noted that the Commission had earlier warned him on Monday (26th October) for calling a BJP candidate, Imarti Devi an “item” while campaigning for a Congress candidate.The Election Commission, in its order of 30th October, has also observed that it “has carefully considered the matter and has observed that Kamal Nath despite being a leader of a political party is repeatedly violating the provision of Model Code of Conduct and breaching the ethical and dignified behaviour”.Plea of Kamal NathThe plea of Kamal Nath states that on 22.10.2020, he sent his reply to Respondent No.1 (Election Commission of India), thereby, inter alia, stating that the remark quoted in the notice was completely misunderstood without context and highlighted that there was no malice or intent to disrespect on Petitioner’s part.He has further averred in the Petition that,”Protection of the honour, dignity and safety of women have been one of the paramount pillars of Petitioner’s work as a Chief Minister, Union Minister and Member of Parliament since 1980 onwards and no allegations of misconduct or ill-tempered remark qua women or anybody has ever been attributed to him, whether inside or outside Parliament.”Further, it has been stated that on 26th October the ECI had advised him to not use such words or statements during the period of Model Code of Conduct. (with regard to ‘item’ remark)However, the plea further says that without any notice to the Petitioner, the Respondent No.1 issued another Order i.e the impugned Order dated 30.10.2020 against the Petitioner invoking his “star-campaigner” status.It has been averred that the Order has been passed inter alia in complete violation of natural justice, without any application of mind, and is arbitrary and unreasoned.The plea lists out the incidents wherein the “leaders of Bhartiya Janata Party have been repeatedly making statements ex-facie in violation of MCC during the period of campaigning for the by-elections. However, no such action has been taken against such persons by the Respondent No.1 (ECI)”The plea raises several “Questions Of Law” including,· Whether the fundamental right of freedom of speech and expression guaranteed under Article 19(1) a to the Petitioner has been abrogated by the Respondent No.1?· Whether a restriction on speech and expression, that too in a manner that is arbitrary and contrary to natural justice, restrains the free exchange of ideas to the voter for making an informed choice and thus negates the fundamental right of the Petitioner to have freedom of speech and expression and the fundamental right of voters to know?· Whether by the revocation of Petitioner from campaigning as Star Campaigner, the principle of free and fair and level playing field in elections have been impeded by the Respondent No.1?Some of the grounds raised in the plea are:-· No notice has been issued to the Petitioner with regard to the impugned Order in complete violation of principles of natural injustice.· It was imperative to issue Notice with regard to the instance dated 13.10.2020 to the Petitioner before taking any punitive action against the Petitioner in compliance with principles of natural justice.· Respondent No. 1 ought to have granted a hearing to the Petitioner before taking the drastic step of revoking the status of Petitioner as a ‘star campaigner’.· The Respondent No.1 had already passed an Order dated 26.10.2020 qua an instance dated 18.10.2020 and therefore, punishing the Petitioner for the same instance is completely in teeth of principles of fair play and res judicata.· The statutory framework of Section 77(1) of the Representation of People Act, 1951 read with Guidelines for Star Campaigners issued by the Respondent No.1 from time to time makes selection / revocation of ‘Star campaigners’ the sole prerogative of the political party.· Respondent No.1’s actions are violative of Petitioner’s fundamental rights under Article 14, 19 and 21 of the Constitution.· The Petitioner seeks framing of guidelines for all stakeholders with regard to speeches during elections for the guidance of political leaders, parties and workers.Prayers of the pleaA. Pass appropriate directions quashing the Order dated 30.10.2020 passed by the Respondent No.1; and frame appropriate guidelines for speeches during campaigning by star campaigners / campaigners, keeping in mind the right to freedom of speech and expression and concept of democratic elections.Click Here To Download Petition[Read Petition]Click Here To Download ECI Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more
