Montana Tigercat dealer, Torgerson’s roots trace all the way back to 1912 when the family first worked the land and opened an agricultural equipment dealership in Ethridge, Montana. Today, the fourth generation of the Torgerson family continues to expand the business – both the geographic footprint, and the product line breadth, with offerings that span the agriculture, construction and forestry sectors.
In early 2022 Torgerson’s acquired Titan Machinery’s Montana branches, including the experienced forestry equipment sales and products support staff working out of Missoula. To maintain a strong foundation underpinning this trend of growth and expansion, Torgerson’s has developed a strong career development program to nurture the next generation of heavy equipment specialists.

- A two-year scholarship for an Associate of Science and associate degree (tuition and books included) with a commitment to work during summers and a two-year commitment post graduation.
- A nine-month scholarship for a degree program with the opportunity to return for continuing education for an associate degree (tuition and books included) with a commitment post-graduation.
- An apprenticeship program for individuals preferring a hands-on learning environment. The focus is to develop highly competent service technicians using peer mentoring, online training, and application of learning through work experience at a participating Torgerson’s location.
