Meet the Martins is a chance for our friends and customers to get to know our company a little better. It serves as a means of putting a face to our organization. In this segment, we’ll head over to our rental department and meet Cathy Lewis.
If you’ve had the pleasure of working with Cathy in our Orland Park rental department, then you know how her even temperament and can-do attitude translate into a truly satisfying customer experience. With a background in logistics, Cathy was able to translate that skill to our rental operations when she joined the Martin team in 2008. Her personable approach ensures that our customers receive the attention that they deserve and provides a compelling reason for them to return again and again.
What do you enjoy the most about Martin Implement? MI has an amazing group of people that have worked here for many years with a wealth of knowledge and a helping hand, and who work very well together.
What’s been the most unique job application that you’ve rented equipment for? The FINN bark blower was used to blow material for a rooftop garden application. I think it was for one of Sam Langham’s customers, and it’s becoming more popular now.
What piece of equipment are customers surprised that we rent? More customers are finding out about our specialized equipment; mostly the FINN hydroseeders, straw blowers & bark blowers, plus the Screen Machine units. They are very pleased to be able to test run these products in our yard to become familiar with the equipment and be confident it will do the job for them.
What’s your favorite weekend activity that helps you unwind? We are dedicated boaters. Weather permitting, we are out Saturdays and Sundays! The beach front area we go to is so calm; it’s like you’re on vacation.
