"With a 10,000 square foot manufacturing facility, 57 acres and three new buildings, we are ramping up production quickly and will be able to deliver tractors to dealer partners expeditiously and provide more efficient services to existing customers. As we achieve full production capacity, we are focused on making hiring and training a top priority."
Nolan Manufacturing has over 50 dealers from Maryland to Georgia, with four equipment dealerships in North Carolina.
