Artex Barn Solutions is a team of dedicated dairy professionals who are passionate about cow comfort and the success of the farmers we work with. Pioneers of cow comfort research, Artex and our partners were some of the first to use time lapse photography to understand cow behaviour and comfort within the barn compared to pasture environments. Our research led to the development of our complete line of Comfort Zone™ products. Artex manufactures and distributes cattle handling equipment such as stalls, headlocks, and calf pens as well as dairy ventilation products, such as recirculation and exhaust fans, and cow cooling products.
Artex has been a leader in agricultural supply for over forty years. Purchased by John de Jonge in 1995, it evolved away from silage and manure equipment to focused in on cattle handling equipment, ventilation and cow cooling.
Artex Barn Solutions rose to new heights over the next ten years, and positioned itself for the global market by opening its first North-American style manufacturing plant in China in 2007. Artex hosts regular trips to China for both customers and dealers to tour our facilities, showcasing our manufacturing capabilities and our commitment to quality.
This global expansion has led Artex to a vast and rapid growth. With a network of dealers around the world and projects in more than 40 countries worldwide, Artex takes pride in the level of excellence and commitment it continues to bring to the dairy industry.
