Lano Equipment was started, March 1 1946 in Chaska Minnesota, as a body and fender business named Lano's Body and Fender Works. In 1948, the Lano Brothers took on the Allis Chalmers farm equipment line. Shortly after in 1950 the New Holland hay and forage line was added. Then five years later, the Minneapolis Moline tractor was added to their farm equipment line. In 1958 the Melroe Bobcat skid steers and farm machinery was brought to be sold at Lano's.
A year later the Lano brothers bought out the Allis Chalmers dealership in Norwood. Brother Dick Lano managed the Norwood store. In 1961 the Norwood store added the Oliver franchise to their line-up. Over the years the Oliver Company and the Minneapolis Moline company merged and formed the White Farm Equipment company. While through those same years, Allis Chalmers became the Deutz-Allis company and then later on it eventually became the company AGCO. AGCO later also bought out the White Farm Equipment company.
In the mid 1980's the Ford Motor Company bought out the New Holland Company. Through this buy out it added the Ford tractor line to the Lano Equipment line of machinery. The Ford New Holland name later became just New Holland.
In 1989, it was time for the present generation of Lano's to take over. Dick Lano retired and now Lano Equipment of Norwood is owned and run by brothers Jack, Paul, Bob, and Andy Lano.
