North Star Hardware opens service shop


NORTH STAR — Dan Creager, Vice President and Service Manager of North Star Hardware & Implement Co., announces the new service shop is officially open and welcomed its first customer on Jan. 18.

In May 2023, North Star Hardware & Implement Co. began constructing a service shop expansion to increase productivity and storage. The expansion includes a new 100’ by 200’ shop to house all service employees, an indoor pressure washing room, service offices, and a 90’ by 100’ warehouse to store parts and equipment.

“We are excited to start utilizing the new shop,” said Dan Creager, North Star Hardware & Implement Co. Service Manager. “This expansion will allow us to be fully equipped with up-to-date tools and technology to continue to provide top-tier service for our customers.”

North Star Hardware & Implement Co. is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. “Times are always changing, especially from 100 years ago to today,” says Dan. “We’re thrilled about our new shop because it provides ample space to accommodate our larger, high-end equipment, which will help us keep up with the changing times and continue to grow for many years.”

North Star Hardware & Implement Co. did not waste time putting the new shop to use and welcoming its first customer. Ed Rauh, a long-time employee, was the first to have his equipment, a Massey Ferguson 8670, serviced in the new shop. “I worked at The Hardware for 44 years,” said Rauh. “I feel honored to be a part of the company’s success, not only as an employee but as a customer. I’m proud to see the guys growing and to continue to succeed.”

North Star Hardware & Implement Co. has been family-owned and operated for 100 years. The Hardware has been committed to helping our customers grow their farming operations and will continue to support their farming needs in years to come.
