New Member Spotlight: H&S Manufacturing Co.
Thursday, October 20, 2022
H&S Manufacturing Co. Inc. was founded by Mr. Lauri Heikenen and two partners in 1967. Over its history, H&S has experienced steady expansion of facilities, products, and markets. The original 5,000 square foot manufacturing plant has grown to 220,000 square feet in Marshfield and Clintonville, WI, and Ripley, NY. The dairy farm industry has always been H&S’s most important market. Today H&S offers forage boxes up to 40′ in length.
Manure spreaders and hay rakes are other major products H&S supplies to the dairy and beef industries. H&S manure spreaders and hay rakes are the dominant players in these markets as well. H&S has become not only the largest player in these markets, but also the design leader, with 6 patents granted by the U.S. government for new designs of bi-fold and high-capacity rakes. For the future, H&S is leading the pack in two developing agricultural technologies, wrapping high-moisture baleage, and crop merging in front of high-capacity, self-propelled choppers.
