Established in a two-car garage, just outside of the city limits of the rural community of Pierz, MN, in 1989, Dean and Lois Virnig started Virnig Manufacturing and Welding. The Virnig’s first business was repair work for local farmers and construction companies in Central Minnesota.Virnig-Facility-Pic-Rice-MN When it comes to superior service and quality work, word travels fast in a small town, and the Virnigs saw their little business grow quickly. Within five years of opening the doors, Dean and Lois moved from their makeshift shop into a larger building and expanded into manufacturing skid steer attachments and dump trailers, subsequently changing their name to Virnig Manufacturing, Inc.
High product demand and limited space warranted additions in 1994, 1997 and 1999. Finally, the Virnigs decided to build a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Rice, MN, in 2001. Then, in 2010, the Virnigs constructed an additional facility right across the parking lot from their new one to add more workspace.
Today, the facilities still encompass all aspects of the manufacturing process. From engineering and cutting raw materials to machining, welding, and painting, Virnig manufactures all of its products in-house. Although the company has grown substantially over the last 25 years, the mission of providing a high quality, durable product has and will continue to remain the same.
