MK Industries

MK Industries was founded in 1983 by Marvin and Kathy Kaptain. They started out manufacturing farm machinery such as drill fills, augers, and center sweeps. In those early days they were farming themselves; therefore they always had a keen interest in improving the efficiency and overall bottom line of the family farm. This interest is still what drives MK today.

Our history is built on helping you, the grain farmer!

2 part hopperconeMK Industries was founded in 1983 by Marvin and Kathy Kaptain.  They started out manufacturing farm machinery such as drill fills, augers, and center sweeps.  In those early days they were farming themselves; therefore they always had a keen interest in improving the efficiency and overall bottom line of the family farm. This interest is still what drives MK today.

In 1985, believing there had to be a better way to clean out grain bins, Marv designed and built one of the first retro fit bin hoppers on the market, the Hoppercone.  Those first Hoppercones are still in use in Central Montana!

MK relocated to Rock Valley, IA in 2007 and brought on Malcolm Johnston to help with the Purchasing, Sales, Marketing and Customer Service.  As you can see, Malcolm is a key point of contact for many items at MK.  He enjoys helping our customers with whatever they require.

From humble beginnings, building a few Hoppercones for various neighbors as well for Marv and Kathy’s own farm, MK has grown and developed into an industry leader in the hopper bottom field. We sell (and deliver kit versions for free!) all over the continental United States.
