A Bit About Us

We are a leading international manufacturer of custom seed treatment equipment and the only full-service operation of its kind, priding itself on true craftsmanship and seeking out the best in the business. We make customization a reality instead of mass producing equipment that doesn't meet the individual needs of our customers. We are committed to lead the industry by providing top-of-the-line, innovative and user-friendly products for any-sized business.

Based in Northeastern Kansas, our in-house welders, fabricators, assemblers, mechanical and electrical engineers, control panel technicians, product development teams, training and installation crews, and national sales force allow us to stand alone in the seed treating industry.

Continual improvements ensure top-of-the-line quality in everything we manufacture. The 90,000+ square foot facility houses state-of-the-art equipment, including high powered laser and water-jet cutting machines, robotic welding capabilities, a full powder-coating line with a multi-component liquid paint booth, and a facility for training and group visits.

Cutting edge programming, software and successful site integration are utilized in the design and implementation of each product. Developing user-friendly software is critical as is providing appropriate training.
