At times, the capacity and success of Earl Horst Systems today can obscure the energy, sacrifice, and commitment that have been invested in the past. Earl and Fern Horst opened for business in July of 1991, with a strong work ethic, a welding shop, and a small service truck. As a keen entrepreneur with previous experience in the grain-handling industry, Earl soon developed a reputation for delivering the best in system design and quality products. Innovation, efficiency, and excellent service became the calling card for Horst Systems. Within ten years, the original facilities were outgrown, and in 2002, the operation was moved to the present location on Florapine Road.

Reflection

The capacity and success of Earl Horst Systems today can obscure the energy, sacrifice, and commitment that have been invested in the past. Earl and Fern Horst opened for business in July of 1991, with a strong work ethic, a welding shop, and a small service truck.

As a keen entrepreneur with previous experience in the grain-handling industry, Earl soon developed a reputation for delivering the best in system design and quality products. Innovation, efficiency, and excellent service became the calling card for Horst Systems. Within ten years, the original facilities were outgrown, and in 2002, the operation was moved to larger facilities on Florapine Road.

Realization

Today, Horst Systems is a vibrant and growing firm, recognized as the industry leader for grain handling systems in Ontario.  A period of unprecedented growth necessitated further expansion. Our new facilities in Elmira include a parts store and electric panel shop, along with more warehouse & manufacturing space.

Anticipation

While we experience growth and change in the tangible elements of our business, the intangibles remain unchanged — we are committed to the values and principles that have brought us to this place.

With our team of dedicated employees, we will maintain the vision, ensuring that our clients today, next month, and in the years to come, will continue to experience the same Innovation, Efficiency, and Proven customer service that are the hallmarks of Earl Horst Systems Ltd.

Earl Horst Systems Ltd. is far more than a bin construction company.  Our capabilities include a large manufacturing facility with cutting-edge fabrication technology and a large powder-coat paint line. Along with specialized components and structures for grain systems, we also manufacture production parts and sub-assemblies unrelated to the grain handling industry.


  • Our LVD 4M x 2M 5KW laser cutting machine allows us to mass-produce high precision custom metal parts.
  • Our laser cutting capabilities are complemented with an LVD 10 ft, 135 ton CNC press brake, enabling us to form components to your exact specifications. 
  • We also have 14 ft wide hydraulic plate bending rolls to accommodate large custom rolling projects.
  • Along with specialized plate cutting and forming equipment, we are equipped and experienced to manufacture structural steel frames, support towers, catwalks, and other custom parts.
  • We also offer in-house sandblasting and powder-coating for structures up to 60 ft in length.
  • At Horst, we provide complete metal processing services, from raw stock to finished products.
