Vermeer's products have the power to move the earth. The company manufactures a slew of production and farm equipment, distributed through a global dealer network. Its line includes hay tools, such as balers and rakes, tedders, and silage wrappers, as well as biomass harvesting equipment used in renewable energy. It also offers landscaping products, from mowers to cutters and edgers. Vermeer's heavy-duty workhorses include equipment for construction, surface mining, and organic recycling, wood waste processing, and tree care. Vermeer sells ground-locating and mapping software for construction use, too. It was founded by Gary Vermeer in 1948.
