It was the Trump administration’s third annual “Made in America” showcase.

T-L was selected to represent Nebraska at the event highlighting homegrown goods.

Their equipment was on display outside of the White House. Company vice president John Thom said he was proud to be invited.

“Our main market is agriculture related, so having an ag related product that we’re using to conserve water and water our crop, it’s an honor,” said John Thom, T-L Irrigation Company.

The equipment even caught the eye of President Trump. The president stopped by to talk to Thom and his co-workers before speaking to attendees on the south lawn.

T-L Irrigation will be celebrating 65 years in business next year.
