In 2014, Mathews Company will celebrate 60 years of producing quality agricultural equipment. We are proud of our dedicated employees who work endlessly to keep our founder, B.C. “Matt” Mathews’ commitment of “Make it easy to operate, make it safe and make it last.”

We are equally thankful for our independent dealer network who continuously strive to learn, sell and service M-C equipment and, without whom  there would be no M-C. Last, but not least, we thank our customers for placing their trust in M-C and for their years of loyalty and continual patronage. As we progress into the 21st century, the M-C Family and employees commit to continue our long tradition of providing Innovation, Expertise and Quality into every product we build.

Quality and Performance
M-C began operations in 1954 with the production of hay and forage flail choppers, then in 1957, the first continuous flow grain dryers rolled out of the factory.  Mathews Company has a reputation for building durable, high quality equipment designed to give years of trouble-free service to the customer.

History of Iron Horse Quality
Founder, B.C. “Matt” Mathews had a passion for locomotive trains. So much so that he purchased an “Iron Horse” steam locomotive which still stands beside the Mathews Company headquarters in Crystal Lake, Illinois. Matt admired the quality, strength and reliability of the old locomotives and believed that everything his company would produce should be reflective of these attributes. This old engine and rail car serve as a constant reminder to our employees to build “Iron Horse Quality” into all M-C equipment.
