A customer’s insurance company called wanting to know the original price (confirmed by a copy of the invoice) of a spreader along with a quote for a new, identical spreader. Sounds easy, right? Well, the original spreader was purchased in 1998! Believe it or not, NCI had a copy of the original invoice, original order and the delivery & inspection sheet!!! 23 years later! The insurance company is gonna have sticker shock when it sees the price difference 23 years can make……….
Newton Crouch Inc (NCI), founded by Will Newton Crouch Sr, opened its doors in Griffin, Georgia in 1940 as a cotton gin and fertilizer warehouse.

The National Farm Machinery Show and Championship Tractor Pull has decided to cancel this year’s schedule events. Initially the group planned to delay the show until March, but management decided to cancel the show due to ongoing uncertainty surrounding COVID-19.
David Beck, president and CEO of Kentucky Venues says the health and safety of guests, exhibitors, and coworkers is the highest priority and “the best way to keep them safe is to postpone the show”. He says the decision was not made lightly.
The 56th National Farm Machinery Show and 53rd Championship Tractor Pull are scheduled for February 16 to 19, 2022.
Organizers of the 2021 Mid-South Farm & Gin Show today announced the show would not be an in-person event but will move solely to its new online virtual show site for this year. The decision was made following months of work with the City of Memphis and local and state health officials to plan a show that would meet health and safety requirements under COVID-19. Please visit the Newton Crouch virtual booth. All of us at NCI are looking forward to a live show in 2022 year. We miss seeing our customers, vendors, competitors and most of all, the wonderful City of Memphis.
