Brothers Binky and Guke Tapscott hosted the grand opening of the new Forest Pro dealership in Ashland, Virginia on May 17, during the Expo Richmond weekend. Forest Pro staff and Tapscott family members worked diligently to ensure that the 375 guests felt welcome and enjoyed the delicious hot breakfast. Each guest spun a customized prize wheel to indicate which door prize they would take home along with the chance to win one of the grand prizes.

The new Forest Pro location, highly visible from Interstate-95, is considered to be a flagship Tigercat dealer facility and the first of its kind, with full Tigercat branding inside and out. The bright lobby, welcoming parts and service counter, fl oor to ceiling graphics demonstrate the Tapscott’s attention to detail and professional sense of pride. Situated on 1,6 ha (4 acres) of land, the 1 070 m² (11,500 ft²) facility has five service bays fully equipped with air compressors, welders and Gantry cranes as well as a well-stocked parts room. The location is managed by Mark Fleisher. Forest Pro’s original location is managed by Meghan Tapscott.
