BAILEY — Irrigation systems and technology company Reinke has recognized Brock Equipment’s Patrick Leslie with its most elite technical service designation, the company announced Thursday.

Leslie received the Platinum PLUS Certified Technician Award. PLUS stands for “proven leaders in unmatched service.”

“Earning the Platinum PLUS Certified Technician title is a significant achievement and qualifies him to provide the highest level of service available to growers,” said Ken Goodall, Reinke’s director of North American sales. “Patrick has completed the most extensive technical service training offered to Reinke dealers, and we’re proud to recognize his hard work.”

The Platinum PLUS Certified Technician Program consists of a series of six technical service training classes and tests. Leslie received the Platinum PLUS award by scoring more than 90% on all six tests.

“Qualified service technicians are extremely important to growers when they make their buying decisions,” added Goodall. “That’s the focus of our technical service programs, to consistently educate dealers across the country to the highest levels of service capabilities possible all in an effort to further our commitment to the growers we serve.”

Brock Equipment operates locations at 6550 Deans St. in Bailey and 102 S. Fourth St. in the Duplin County town of Calypso.

Leslie’s award is the fourth Reinke honor for Brock Equipment announced in the last seven months. In March, the business was named a top five dealer in sales for its territory and received a Diamond Pride Award in recognition of its success last year. On Sept. 1, Brock Equipment technician Lee Finch received a five-year PLUS Program Longevity Award.

With hundreds of dealers in more than 40 countries, Reinke Manufacturing bills itself as the world’s largest privately held manufacturer of center pivot and lateral move irrigation systems. Family owned since 1954 and headquartered in Deshler, Nebraska, Reinke says it develops products and technology designed to increase agriculture production while providing labor savings and environmental efficiencies.
