Pulling a homemade wagon at Grandpa’s house kept Wiebe brothers Jake and John busy in their early childhoods; most of the time.
Watching their Grandpa in his blacksmith shop was pure magic for the young Wiebe brothers where they watched him forge plowshares.
Years of helping their Father design and build machinery also contributed to the brothers’ keen interest in all things mechanical.
Jake and John started Timberstar in 1986 and soon became the world’s largest producer of lumber marking equipment by building robust machines that outperformed customer expectations.
In 2009, the brothers decided to expand their business and start their first KIOTI Tractor dealership in Vernon BC. They chose KIOTI Tractors because of the robust engineering that goes into the building of every KIOTI Tractor and because of DAEDONG’s strong support fo the product.
Jake and John’s passion for industrial-grade machinery was ignited by the flames of their Grandpa’s forge. It still burns today as the brothers continue to raise the standard by offering only the highest grade compact tractors in North America.
