In 1990, Doug Terpstra and Jaci Terpstra left Vermeer Corporation in Pella, Iowa, and founded Vermeer Northwest. Fourteen years later, Tim Weaver joined the business and eventually purchased the successful dealership from Doug, his father-in-law. Along with his veteran team of leaders, he continued to develop Vermeer Northwest’s 33-year legacy of customer service.
Through this merger, Weaver has accepted the role of Vice President of Sales with direct oversight in leading commercialization efforts in the states of Washington and Alaska. Weaver joins the senior leadership team of Vermeer Mountain West. He and his wife, Johanna Weaver, are also now significant shareholders in the Vermeer Mountain West organization.
Kyle Pieratt will continue to lead as the President and CEO of Vermeer Mountain West.
“We are excited to continue to build out the Vermeer Mountain West brand as we strive to deliver excellence for our customers," Pieratt said. "This merger continues to leverage our ability to scale customer service, inventories, and long-term career pathing for our team members, in the fast pace and growing markets we serve. Similar to the customers and suppliers, competing at scale continues to be a vital part to sustainability well into the foreseeable future. We are committed to this journey with our customers and team members.”

There will also be branch locations in Tucson, Arizona; Las Vegas, Nevada; Albuquerque, New Mexico; El Paso, Texas; Salt Lake City, Utah; Boise, Idaho; Billings, Montana; Missoula, Montana; Spokane, Washington; Tacoma, Washington; Marysville, Washington; and Anchorage, Alaska.
