March 25, 2014, Mankato, MN – A&E Construction Supply, Inc. hosted an open house on March 14 at the company’s new location on the western fringe of Mankato, MN, in celebration of their move to Mankato from Truman in spring 2013, and of the company’s 40 years of business.

Bob, Lynn and Andy Manske, owners of A&E, welcomed guests with coffee, donuts and a tour of the new site, which separates the A&E offices from the shop and warehouse. A Wolfe 540 Super Plow was on display in the office during the open house, with more plows, Wolfe Man Wheel Trenchers, and various Eager Beaver Trailers in the lot.

Attendees gathered in the A&E shop for a presentation from guest speakers who addressed issues affecting the agricultural drainage industry. Speakers included Bob Manske, Ed Veeke (owner and president of Wolfe), Kent Rodelius (vice-president of Prinsco, Inc.) and Brian Hicks (farmer and ag consultant) who both represented the Agricultural Drainage Management Coalition, and Phil Algreen of Agri Drain. The speakers discussed drainage water management practices and how tiling has become the new target of water quality issues. Brady Kolbet of Mid-Tech GPS Consulting advised drainage contractors in the audience to use cloud technology to backup tile plotting maps.

A&E thanks all who attended to celebrate the company’s milestones.
