The Billings Outpost

Pioneer West built by farmer and son

By ALYSSA BARNES

A trip to the local farm equipment store, not unlike a trip to the local feed store, serves multiple purposes. A farmer may go to pick up a part or a piece of equipment, but he goes back for the warm welcome, hot coffee and friendly handshake that come from doing business with someone he knows and trusts.

These are the values that Pioneer West was built upon when two farmers, a father and son, started building spray equipment fifteen years ago. Today, with the Pioneer West headquarters in La Grande, Oregon, a retail location in Joseph, Oregon, and a new retail location having opened in Belgrade just six months ago, the company with modest beginnings continues to grow, but remains true to its roots.

Pioneer West carries a variety of agricultural equipment including sprayers, Precision Farming electronics, irrigation systems and tractors, offering complete solutions for today’s modern farmer.

“A farmer [Greg Bingaman] owns the company,” said Pioneer West’s Kaela Curtis, “he has specialized knowledge regarding the needs of our customers.” In the company’s Belgrade store, the staff’s primary focus is providing customers with the highest quality sprayers available on the market, including large capacity Miller Sprayers and Pioneer West’s smaller capacity skid sprayers that are manufactured in-house. With the company’s commitment to its customers’ productivity long after the sale is complete, they are also Miller Certified for service and offer in-house service on all the sprayers they sell.

“Casey is outside sales and service,” said Del Richardson, store manager in Belgrade, “He was on a sales call at a farm where they were having trouble with their equipment and was able to get them back up and running at full capacity that day.”

Del Richardson and Casey will be at the MATE Show in booth #548 in the Expo Center.

They will have a Miller “Condor” sprayer on hand, complete with 1000 gallon tank and 100 foot boom, along with information on Precision Farming and the various electronics they offer to support it. To learn more about Pioneer West and the products they offer, visit www.pioneerwestinc.com.
