Watkins & Sons Manufacturing, Inc. was started in 1976 as a sole proprietorship by Nathan L. Watkins, Sr. under the name of Watkins Manufacturing Company. The business was incorporated in 1992 and is a closely held S corporation. Watkins & Sons started as a job shop. We produce production parts and provide custom fabrications for our industrial customers. In 1979 a farmer requested that we manufacture some livestock equipment that was more durable and efficient than was available from other sources. Thus, a line of swine equipment was started. Over the years we have expanded our services to agricultural customers while continuing to provide our industrial customers with quality manufactured parts. Though our line of products and services has grown, we have kept in touch with our customers` needs and continue to offer custom fabrication.
