Reynolds Farm Equipment Named a Top Workplace

Reynolds Farm Equipment, the Farm Equipment 2018 Dealership of the Year, has been named one of the 2022 Top Workplace winners in Central Indiana by the Indianapolis Star’s survey of Central Indiana employers.

The dealership is the only retailer to make this year’s list. Reynolds was founded in 1955 after Mac and Arline Reynolds purchased a small ag equipment dealership from the previous owner, who was looking to retire. By 1959, Reynolds had grown into the largest single-store dealer in Indiana. Their son, Gary, first got involved in 1969, where he started in sales. His siblings also worked for the business in various roles.

Since then, Reynolds Farm Equipment has grown to 5 stores, most of which are located within the Indianapolis metro area.

According to the paper’s report, 

“It’s been a weird couple of years,” said Reynolds CEO Michael Bode. “It’s been really busy and we’ve had to adapt. And it has put a lot of stress on our employees, who have done some amazing things.”

Bode worked for Reynolds for nine years and led the company’s golf and turf division before it was sold to South Carolina-based Greenville Turf and Tractor in early 2020. Though he briefly left the company for Greenville Turf, the Columbus, Indiana, native returned as CEO in June 2020 when Gov. Eric Holcomb’s stay-at-home order was still impacting how many retailers operated.
