GROVE CITY, Pa. — Lamb and Webster began in 1960 with its first location in Springville, N.Y., then it built its North Java, N.Y. location in 1986 and, in 2002, opened the Woodhull, N.Y. site. There are four partners in the dealership: Lloyd Lamb Jr., Ron Goodrich, Tom Lamb and Bob Lefrancois.
The Grove City location is open from 8 a.m.- 5 p.m. Monday-Friday and from 8 a.m.- noon Saturday.
Lamb and Webster are constantly upgrading inventory and have the ability to move parts from store to store. The parts staff has a combined total of 45 years of service.
Lamb and Webster offers a full range of financing for every product they sell. They also develop custom financing plans for farmers. In addition, Lamb and Webster does everything it can to ensure the buyer has everything they could need, including extended warranties and insurance on the equipment they are purchasing.
“We are here for the whole process from start to finish,” Lefrancois said.
One area growing in the equipment sector is precision farming, which includes autosteering for tractors and implements. There are six towers constructed by the company in New York and plans are under way for construction in the area the Grove City store handles.
Lefrancois said there is a growing demand for the tools, and the benefits are worth the investment in the system because of the cost savings.
In addition, there is less fatigue on the farmer because the machine is doing work such as mapping the field, determining yields and the monitoring that he or she may have done in the past. This can mean more acreage with less labor in the end.
Lefrancois said one of the goals of Lamb and Webster is to keep up with technology and the state-of-the-art equipment.
