THE TORO COMPANY RINGS THE CLOSING BELLŪ AT THE NYSE TO CELEBRATE 100 YEARS
To mark this special occasion, Michael J. Hoffman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, joined by other company executives and channel partners, rang The NYSE Closing Bell.
Toro is proud of its legacy of quality and innovation. Founded in 1914 to build tractor engines for The Bull Tractor Company, the company survived the tumultuous years of World War I by building steam steering engines for merchant ships to support the war effort. In 1920, Toro entered the turf industry when it mounted five reel mowers to the front of a Toro tractor to cut the fairways at The Minikahda Club in Minneapolis. Today, Toro is a worldwide leader in turf maintenance equipment and precision irrigation systems.
