Torrington, WY – Schlagel Manufacturing, a pioneering force in the agricultural industry, proudly commemorates its 30th anniversary of transforming the landscape of modern farming. Founded by Ron Schlagel and carried on through the legacy of the Schlagel family, the company has tirelessly strived to improve farming practices. In the past, plowing the land was merely the first laborious step in a time-consuming tillage process to prepare the soil for planting. Despite this arduous effort, the crops remained vulnerable to the erosive forces of wind and water, making the entire farming journey challenging and unpredictable.

However, with a relentless passion for innovation and a deep understanding of agricultural needs being a farmer himself, Ron Schlagel recognized the urgency for change. With that mentality, Schlagel Manufacturing has earned a well-deserved reputation for its unwavering commitment to quality, innovation, and customer satisfaction. The company’s relentless pursuit of excellence has led to a loyal customer base and a growing national presence.

As Schlagel Manufacturing marks its 30th year of service, the company honored this milestone by hosting an event including product showcases, customer appreciation, and educational tours through the facilities. The pride from the local farmers and long-time friends of the family was palpable as Bryan Schlagel, President of Schlagel Manufacturing, took people through the manufacturing process from start to finish.

On tour, Bryan highlighted the automated precision and the expertise of his team of welders, engineers, and technicians. Each part of the machines is fabricated in the facility, and there are only a few parts that do not come out of Schlagel’s on-site inventory.  The tour witnessed firsthand the commitment of the skilled workforce, whose dedication and expertise contribute to the success of Schlagel Manufacturing’s renowned products.
