Wick Buildings Partners with FFA on New State Fair BuildingAugust 01, 2012
Wick Buildings and The Future Farmers of America opened a new joint use building to the general public at the Kansas State Fairgrounds. The facility features a 36 x 70 working agriculture building for the FFA that includes animal housing and informational display space. The building also features a 24 x 32 commercial space for Wick Buildings sales efforts at the Kansas State Fair.
"This beautiful new building showcases the strong presence that Wick Buildings has in the agribusiness world" said Larry Edema, Assistant National Sales Manager for Wick Buildings. "Agriculture, in its many forms, is by far the most important segment of our business." The joint building was the culmination of a year of work on the partnership by Denny Stoecklein, Kansas State Fair General Manager and Shawn Baer, Wick Buildings District Sales Manager.
"This building will provide a wonderful facility for displays, information, education and demonstrations", said Kansas FFA State President Emily Beneda. "We are pleased with the partnership and this working building that has resulted from it".
