Making Beautiful Places for the Glory of God
Wes "Max" Walker of Walker Mowers
Bob Walker was 13 years old when he heard R.G. LeTourneau speak about being God's businessman. It was then and there that Bob felt the call to business. Today, Bob is president of Walker Mowers, but God is the Senior Partner—and has been since Bob's father started Walker Manufacturing Company on the family farm in Kansas. Since 1980, Walker has focused on designing, developing and producing a line of compact, commercial-grade riding mowers and attachments. In 2008, the 100,000th mower came off the line in their 216,000 square-foot manufacturing facility in Ft Collins, Colorado. Walker mowers can be seen on the lawns of castles in Europe, parks Down Under, international State Houses and exclusive properties throughout North America. But most often they're used by family-owned mowing businesses around the globe. Ingenuity, excellence, integrity, gratitude, stewardship and multiplying opportunity guide Walker Mower as they seek not just to make lawn mowers, but to create beautiful places for the glory of God.
