Justin Mobley is the newest member of the IAE Service Team in Biglerville, PA. As a Technical Specialist, Justin is a great source of knowledge on both new and used equipment. His background is primarily in automotive and diesel technology, which provided him with a wealth of knowledge. Justin graduated high school with honors from a twoyear automotive technology program at the Carroll County Career and Technology Center in Westminster, MD. During his time in this program, he became a MD state finalist in the Ford Motor Company automotive skills competition and earned a partial scholarship to the Ford Asset Program and became certified to work on any Ford/Lincoln/Mercury vehicle. After graduation, Justin began his career at Apple Ford in the truck shop working on any and every Ford diesel truck/bus/ambulance etc. After a few years at Apple, Justin joined Gene Latta Ford in Hanover, PA as a gasoline and diesel technician where he spent lots of time working on the latest Ford vehicles, focusing on diesel, transmission, and electrical work. Most recently, Justin managed a 30,000-square foot print finishing shop where he was responsible for keeping production running and on schedule. His responsibilities included machine selection and maintenance, employee training on machinery, logistics, and machinery installation, in addition to being on call 24/7. In his spare time, you can usually find Justin fabricating roll cages, track tuning cars, building cars, doing performance engine and transmission work for friends, or wiring and tuning on modern dirt track and drag racing cars. If he’s not near an engine, Justin is most likely spending time with his father or grandmother. Justin’s automotive, diesel, and technical experience in addition to production management of a large facility make him a natural fit into our industry. Not only does he understand and enjoy the work, but he understands the importance of providing timely support. Both customers and team members alike are thrilled to have Justin on the team.

He will be greatly missed by customers and colleagues alike. We have all benefited from Jim’s guidance, support, and comradery. Jim joined the company in 1995 as a Regional Sales Representative and ended his career as the Vice President of Midwest Operations, covering our Ohio and Indiana locations. While replacing Jim will be difficult, his mentorship left us with a strong internal candidate. We congratulate long-time employee, Jake Davlin, on his new position as the General Manager of Ohio and Indiana Independent Ag locations. Jake has been a vital member of the team since joining in 2005. His dedication and ambition has earned him multiple promotions, from a Warehouse Manager, to an Inside Parts Sales Rep, Regional Sales Rep, and most recently, General Manager. We look forward to the positive changes new leadership can bring. Jake will also be working to find a qualified applicant to replace his sales position. During this transitional period, please call or email Jake for any all Ohio sales calls and requests. Jake Davlin, General Manager, Ohio & Indiana Cell: 419-217-3530 | Email: JRD@IndependentAg.com
