In 1961, Merthin Miles, Scott Brown and Owen Ward made a commitment to build a seed cutter they believed would change the potato industry. Not satisfied with just producing the finest cutters available, Milestone has diversified its product line since its humble beginnings and today designs and manufactures quality Sizers, Eliminators, Pilers, Conveyors, Treaters and more. Each machine built by Milestone incorporates many of the latest technologies and innovations while at the same time drawing upon Milestone’s years of experience. Focusing on Cutters and Handling Equipment has allowed Milestone to dedicate time and resources into developing some of the most innovative and effective pieces of potato handling equipment and cutters available today. Located in Blackfoot, Idaho U.S.A, Milestone is backed by years of experience and a reliable dealer network throughout the world.
Through their energy and resources, along with hard work and many trials and tribulations, the Milestone Seed Cutter became a reality. The seed cutter was the first product built by Milestone and today represents the industry standard for potato seed cutters.
At Milestone we are still looking ahead to the new challenges our customers may face and how we can help solve them. Our ambitious research and development plan hasn't slowed down since Merthin, Scott and Owen made their commitment to the industry all those years ago; and that guarantees Milestone will stay at the forefront of the potato equipment industry.
