Remlinger Mfg. Co. has been producing farm equipment for over 50 years. The founder, Wilbur Remlinger had the simple philosophy of producing quality harrow attachments at a fair price to farmers in the area. From those humble beginnings in 1964, Remlinger has grown to being a producer of a vast array of farm equipment, serving farmers all across the United States as well as around the globe.
When Wilbur passed away in 1978, his son John took over leadership of the company for the next 40 years. During the early years of John’s tenure the company expanded its offering of harrow attachments to include almost every style available making Remlinger the go to company for harrow attachments. Remlinger also became known as a company where farmers with ideas for new products could come to and get a fair deal. The company is proudly still known for this today. Diversity became much more of a company focus in the early 1980’s and several large contracts were secured. One in the guardrail industry is still held today. Another contract involved cutting wrist pins for Cummins engines. Approximately 8 semi loads of parts left here every month for several years. In 2000 we expanded our product line again with the addition of our Strip Till line (brought to us by a local farmer). In the year 2009 the company became ISO certified marking another milestone. 2010 was a very important year as that marked the first acquisition by Remlinger Mfg., purchasing PFM Mfg. from Olwein, Iowa. This expanded and diversified our product line further to include rock pickers, PTO Ditchers, bale slicers, and skid steer screening buckets. In 2013 Remlinger began another new chapter teaming up with Kelly Engineering from Booleroo Centre, Australia and we began manufacturing all the Diamond Harrow frames for North America. In 2015 Remlinger made its second acquisition when the Sukup implement division was purchased. This consisted mainly of the 9400 high speed cultivator and the 2300 no till drill.
The year 2018 began a new chapter in the history of Remlinger Mfg. Co. as John Remlinger named Ron Hovest the new President and CEO of Remlinger. The family tradition at Remlinger did stay intact as Ron is the oldest grandson of Wilbur Remlinger and Ron had been the head of engineering for many years and nearly 30 years total service at Remlinger.
As the Remlinger slogan states “Our tradition is quality driven and field proven”.
