GOTHENBURG, Neb. (Jan. 30, 2015) — Dawson Tire & Wheel has sustained annual growth for 17 consecutive years — the entire length of its existence — and it plans to charge into the future like…well, a rhino.
The dealership, which specializes in agricultural tires and wheels, was founded in Gothenburg in 1998 by company owner and CEO Eric MacPherson. Since then it has expanded to locations in Indianapolis and Rosetown, Saskatchewan.
Loren Block, the firm's marketing manager, credited much of the company's success to the state of the agricultural tire market as well as its ag-focused business model. “I think, fundamentally, we've seen ups and downs in agriculture, but the sustained growth of agriculture is inevitable with growing world populations and food requirements.... That's why, in this company, that focusing on agriculture we feel is a very safe bet,” he told Tire Business.
“But I think on a more basic level, we have a great culture within Dawson Tire — it's a culture of excellence.
