W With three businessesa construction company farm operation and aerial spraying serviceto manage Stan and Chuck Sayre seek out reliable equipment and efficient service. Columbus Equipment Company does both so well that Chuck Sayre credits the dealership with helping keep his construction company up and running. Construction is a sideline business for us but Columbus Equipment Company makes it so easy for me to run the company and provide jobs for my guys said Sayre vice president of Sayre Construction Sayre Farms and Sayre Helicopter. The history of the three companies is intertwined. Stan Sayre grew up on a Pennsylvania farm and came to Ohio to work at the Lordstown GM plant. In 1969 he went back to farming. He needed reliable aerial spraying work done so he learned to do it himself. In the late 1980s Sayre expanded into construction work. His son Chuck joined the company in the mid-1990s and helped grow the construction firm. One of Sayre Constructions biggest clients is The Shelly Company. We do stripping to expose gravel for The Shelly Company in Northeastern Ohio at various pits. We also do pads for commercial developments and small residential site prep putting in streets and sewers Sayre explained. The company uses Komatsu PC400LC-6 and PC210LC-10 excavators dozers including a Komatsu intelligent Machine Control D51i a WA250 wheel loader with tool carrier two HM350-1 haul trucks and a Komatsu CK30 track skid steer. Other pieces from Columbus Equipment include a Kubota utility vehicle Sayre Farms Operator Joe Rogers moves thousands of tons of lime during the season. Lime reduces soil acidity and improves water penetration. It also provides plant nutrition as a source of calcium and magnesium and promotes the uptake of nitrogen phosphorous and potassium in growing plants.
