Lockwood Manufacturing has expanded its service reach for customers in the Columbia Basin of Washington and Oregon. SS Equipment, Lockwood’s service dealer in the area, hired Justin Benzel as a dedicated Lockwood service technician. SS Equipment partnered with Lockwood in 2019 as the region’s Lockwood service dealer.

“We are supporting and investing into the acquisition of Lockwood’s service, and are excited to have Justin on board,” says Todd Ray, president of SS Equipment.

Benzel joins the Lockwood service team at SS Equipment and has a strong working knowledge of Lockwood’s machinery. Justin is the son of Larry Benzel, the new sales representative for both Lockwood and Double L in the region, and is a third-generation Benzel to work on Lockwood equipment.

“We’re proud to expand both our sales and service support for potato growers of the region,” sats Dan Birrenkott, president of Crary Industries and Lockwood Manufacturing.
