Larry Kooiker started Agritek in 1987, manufacturing material handling equipment such as tractor mounted forklifts, flex harrow tillage tines, and grape trellises mainly for the Agricultural industry.
Today those products, while they continue to be strong in their respective niches of the agricultural market, represent only one segment of our overall company strength and capacity. As the company grew it diversified into metal cutting, metal stamping and other precision engineered metal components that form the core of the business today. Our recognized competence in metal fabricating, specialty machining, and stamping give Agritek a more diversified marketing scope. Today we serve customers in a variety of areas ranging from automotive to recreation, furniture, and agricultural. We continue to expand our capabilities by seeking and qualifying unique and innovative process for metal product manufacturing.
