Our Spirit of Innovation goes back to 1895

It was 1895. Grover Cleveland was President, Victoria was Queen of England and Henry Ford would build his first automobile the following year.

In Minnesota, Gustave Olson, a son of Norwegian immigrants had begun manufacturing his new invention. This patented device greatly simplified the moving of hay into barns and was the first of several innovations which led to the early establishment of our company as a successful agricultural equipment manufacturer.

Although a mature company, we have long recognized that our continued success is dependent on providing for the needs of a constantly changing economy. Through the years, our research and development focus has been increasingly toward agri-business and industrial material handling. It was through those efforts that we produced what we consider our most significant achievement to date – the V-RAM Pump.
