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. 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 to include grain storage and handling equipment. When the swine market crashed in the 1990’s we moved from the swine equipment industry and more into the grain storage industry. We now supply our customers with grain bins, grain dryers, conveyors, elevators, loop systems, transport augers, grain monitoring systems, agricultural irrigation systems, truck scales, and more. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you.
