The Insta-Pro International story began more than four decades ago in the heartland of America. Soybean harvests were abundant but local farmers lacked the ability to process on-farm crops into nutritional animal feed; that gap was filled with the invention of the high shear dry extruder. The new technology was patented, becoming the industry’s first high shear dry extruder. Today, the extruder is utilized to cook, sterilize, stabilize, texturize and expand oilseeds, grains and by-products.

After the success of the high shear dry extruder, additional products to enhance extrusion processes were developed. Mechanical oil presses also became a key component of our product family. The extruder and oil press were combined to form the ExPress System which allows for chemical-free processing of various oilseeds into high quality meal and oil used in many manufacturing industries today. Additionally, we added the medium-shear extruder to process shaped products like pet food and fish feed. Now, more than forty years later, Insta-Pro International systems are at work on six continents - North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia.
