A Family Business
Prospect Implement has always been a family-owned and managed company. Started in 1942 by Carl Altergott, with son Don joining his dad in the mid-'60s, after his Army service. A decade or so later, Don took over the company and was joined by his son, Tim, in 1992.
Five years ago, Don's grandsons Justin and Jared Ewing became the 4th generation of the family to work at Prospect Implement.
The company first started out selling Minneapolis-Moline equipment when a farmer named Carl Neilson backed Carl Altergott in his business, and Prospect Implement opened as a Minneapolis-Moline dealer. In 1955, the company became a dealer for Oliver, and added Versatile in 1971.
Part of the Community
Ever since we began, our employees have been people from our community and were farmers, or come from farm families.They all understand the needs and ways of farming, and have ties to the farming community.
We are proud sponsors of FFA and annual supporters of the SE Weld County Fair.
And in keeping with our heritage, we still do business the old fashion way with trust and a handshake. We'll never use high pressure sales tactics or games. And we do not charge any dealer fees: Your costs are what you see, plus any applicable sales tax.
Plus, when you call our dealership you'll always get a member of the staff answering the phone. There's no fancy answering system or phone tree, only an interested person to talk to who can help you with your problem.
