Kansas Governor Sam Brownback was in Marysville Tuesday afternoon, concluding a whirlwind tour of Kansas businesses in recognition of Small Business Month in June. Following stops in Concordia and Belleville, Brownback stopped at Kansas Specialty Dog Service in Washington, then revisited Oregon Trail Equipment west of Marysville which is rebuilding after the May tornado.
Brownback stopped at Tension Envelope, and wrapped the day up with a tour of Landoll Corporation, where Don Landoll showcased shops 50, 60, 70, and 80, the company’s most recent expansions. Landoll currently employs over 900 in Marysville, with operations in Beloit, Kansas and Brillion, Wisconsin. The company will celebrate its 50th anniversary later this year.
Don Landoll showed the first grain trailer he made while a student at Hanover High School, and noted that the company has now sold well over 20,000 trailers. He proudly introduced his 97 year old mother, his children Paula and Phil, and grandchildren.
