Who:   Our speaker – Dallas Steiner:

Dallas Steiner is Chairman of the Board and CEO of Venture Products, Inc. Venture Products, Inc. is a global provider of compact tractors and commercial grade attachments called Ventrac. With more than 35 years of experience in designing, manufacturing, and marketing outdoor power equipment, Dallas is responsible for leading product growth in global markets and provides leadership to expanding export sales.

In the mid 1970’s, Dallas and his six brothers formed the Steiner Corporation. In 14 years, the company grew into three divisions, Turf Equipment, Agricultural Equipment and a community repair shop; two of which were sold in 1988. By 1996, the company’s vision and goals changed; prompting the renaming of the company to Venture Products, Inc. Since then, the Steiner brothers have committed the company’s focus to the next generation all-wheel drive compact tractor, which gave birth to the Ventrac brand.

Dallas is an outstanding entrepreneurial figure for the small rural community of Orrville, Ohio. He has served on the board of directors for the Orrville Chamber of Commerce and is continuously supportive of various community initiatives. At the age of 22, Dallas moved to Bolivia to work in appropriate technology, with agricultural rice haulers, peanut shellers, and animal tractions. In 1989, he and his wife organized the Stansberry Children’s Home and spent the next five years running it. The orphanage is still active today and serves more than 200 children in Bolivia.

With Ventrac’s versatility and more than 30 quick-mount attachments, the company is no stranger to numerous marketplaces; both nationally and internationally. Dallas has led the VPI vision of being a strong global contributor of quality products in more than 20 countries, including Sweden, Australia, Canada and Japan.
