Horst Systems Ltd

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

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.
 

Realization

The Horsts succeeded in transmitting their core values and defining principles to their sons. Glenn and Collin gained valuable field experience while working on bin-jacking crews as teenagers, and their careers have transitioned through construction, millwright, and dryer service work into management roles. Earl and Fern are still very active in the business, maintaining a vital link to the past in the midst of growth and change.

Today, Earl Horst Systems Ltd. is a vibrant and growing firm, recognized as the industry leader for grain handling systems across Ontario. The business includes an advanced manufacturing facility, a fleet of more than 20 service vehicles, along with an electrical service division (WireTech Electrical Contractors).
 

Anticipation

A period of unprecedented growth has necessitated further expansion. Our new facilities in Elmira will include a parts store and an electric panel shop, as well as increased manufacturing and office space.

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 experience the same Innovation, Efficiency, and Proven customer service — the hallmarks of Earl Horst Systems Ltd.
