After receiving a Governor’s Cup award, Ricketts recognizes Allmand for its growth  

HOLDREGE (September 24, 2018) – Allmand Bros., Inc., a Briggs & Stratton company, will welcome Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts to its facility on Tuesday, September 25. The visit is part of the Governor’s tour to recognize companies that have contributed to the state’s economic development achievements, earning Ricketts the Governor’s Cup award for the second consecutive year.

Media is invited to attend the event from 4:15 to 5 p.m. at the Allmand office, located at 1502 W. 4th Ave, Holdrege.  

 “As Allmand celebrates its 80th year in business, it also celebrates an expanded lineup of premium job site products that resulted in all-time record revenues this past fiscal year,” says Ben Duke, senior vice president of Briggs & Stratton’s Standby and Job Site products group. “In the past year, Allmand has added 123 jobs and is looking to fill more.”

“Allmand is a success story,” says Governor Ricketts. “After the oil & gas industry experienced a downturn just a few short years ago, the Company had to shift its focus to serve new industries. It’s come back better than ever, and I look forward to thanking the team for their hard work on Tuesday.”
