Outdoor appliance maker The Toro Company (Bloomington, MN, U.S.) announced that is celebrating its 90th anniversary.

"The Toro Company has a long and rich heritage of providing innovative lawn and landscape products and services that meet our customers' changing needs," said Ken Melrose, Toro's chairman and CEO. "The integration of quality products with value-added services is a key driver in our business. Through our ongoing innovation we can also continue to provide growth and learning opportunities to our employees, creating a highly skilled workforce that's good for Toro and good for the state of Minnesota."

Founded in 1914, The Toro Company claims many "firsts," such as being the first to manufacture the two-row farm cultivator, as well as the first to produce the 76-in professional mower, snow thrower, bagging attachment for rotary mowers, flexible line trimmer, and electric-start consumer lawn mowers.

Toro manufactures several well-known brands in the outdoor appliance industry, including Toro(R), Exmark(R), Lawn-Boy(R), Irritrol Systems(R), Lawn Genie(R), and Pope(R). In addition to the consumer market, Toro's products and services are used to maintain and irrigate turf in the golf, sports and grounds, landscape contractor, and agricultural irrigation markets.

"This is an exciting time for the entire team at Toro," Mr. Melrose noted. "We are experiencing financial success due to the innovative efforts and dedication of every member of the Toro family. As we look to the future, we will invest in key initiatives to ensure our sales growth outperforms the market, and we will continue to adapt and change to meet the unique needs of our global customers."
