Employees and Culture


As legendary, former Toro CEO Ken Melrose put it, "We believe the single most important factor that influences our success as a company is the Toro employee." The value the company places on our employees is further reflected in the remarkable length of their tenure. It is common to find employees with 10, 20 or more than 30 years of service. The solid experience-based employee team provides unique insight that helps contribute to the excellence of the products and services that customers have come to expect from The Toro Company.
