Grossenburg Implement now the new name among Philip businesses

Pictured are, from left: Joe Woitte (service manager as well as the new general manager in Philip), Gene Grossenburg (CEO of Grossenburg Implement), and Pat Grossenburg, his wife.

"We actually changed our name from Moodie Implement last Friday. We answered the phones 'Grossenburg Implement' on Saturday and some callers hung up, thinking they had the wrong number," said Joe Woitte, who remains the service manager and is also now the new general manager of Grossenburg Implement in Philip.

Some things will remain the same at the implement company. All 16 employees at the Philip store will remain with the new organization.
