Looking back at 2020
The Unexpected Year
From a deadly pandemic to a global movement for racial justice, the year 2020 has certainly experienced its fair share of events. Although it has been a year of lots of change it has also been a year of learning, growth, and new ideas here at PVE. Here are some of the things that happened around PVE this year.
We welcomed three new faces to the PVE team this year. Whitney joined the company just over a year ago as our receptionist and has recently transitioned to her new role as part of our Dealer Support Team. Colten is the son of sales manager Mark Hostetler and came on board with us in August as part of our Dealer Support Team. He brings a wealth of experience in customer service with him having spent several years working as a manager in retail sales. Lastly, Hannah recently joined us in October after graduating from Ohio Dominican and is transiting into her new role as our Marketing Manager.
From a product standpoint, we released ninety-three new products covering John Deere, Cat, and Case equipment. One of our core values, innovation, played a vital role in this production. As the world changes, we are always evolving whether that’s helping with customer solutions or keeping up with new machines. We are continually working to make parts that are best suited for our suppliers. This even includes having the best machines to produce the best products, with the new addition of our plasma cutting board we were able to do just that. This machine will be able to increase material utilization and minimize consumable costs for us at PVE.
Due to the pandemic, our online e-commerce sales have had a big growth with the addition of our Dealer Gateway site. The Dealer Gateway was recently established in August 2019 where our dealers can check prices, inventory levels, place orders, track shipments, and more. However, in 2020 our dealer gateway became the perfect tool to be utilized during the pandemic allowing our suppliers to order products directly anytime anywhere.
These are just some of the many things that happened around PVE this year. We are looking forward to what 2021 has to offer.« Back to Blog
