Agtron Enterprises' Celebrating Over 30 Years in Business
As a farmer, you know what you need, and we strive to provide the complete package—a quality product and the service to go with it. That has been the philosophy of Agtron Enterprises for over 30 years now. Begun in a basement in 1982, Agtron has risen quickly to become one of Canada's leaders in agricultural electronics. Today, Agtron's new state of the art facility occupies over 16,000 square feet of prime industrial space in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
Our mission is to build lasting partnerships with our customers by providing products and technologies that will improve their profitability, in turn making Agtron Enterprises a leader in the agricultural electronics industry. We achieve this by designing easy-to-use and reliable products, listening to our customers' ideas and concerns, and providing helpful and friendly support for all of our products.
As a manufacturer of cutting-edge agricultural electronics, Bill Baker, president of Agtron, wanted to ensure his products were accessible to the average farmer, 'farmers should be able to use electronic technology to make their lives easier and increase their profits, not to make their lives more complicated.' To meet this objective, his company designs and manufactures user-friendly equipment, including:
- Shaft and bin monitors
- Blockage and rate monitors for air seeders
- Area counters
- Variable rate control for seed, fertilizer, and anhydrous application
Recognizing the effect precision farming technology is having on this industry, Agtron's latest developments also incorporate Global Positioning Systems (GPS), computers, software, and instrumentation to monitor and control all aspects of a farming operation. Because of Agtron's superior design, highly developed production system and rigorous testing procedures, our products are functional, practical, and very dependable.
All of Agtron's products are conceived and designed by our in-house Research and Development department. Using the latest technology combined with farming backgrounds, our engineering staff is able to create the most innovative products with the user's perspective in mind.
Research is key in developing a superior product which is why we invest heavily in our R&D department and settle for nothing less than perfection. Agtron is committed to the future of farming and consistently designs products that set the standard for the industry.
