Share this item

Unverferth Manufacturing Co., Inc. purchases of Orthman Manufacturing’s agricultural product lineup and the two manufacturing locations based in Lexington, NE USA. Both companies are privately owned manufacturers of a wide range of agricultural equipment.

Unverferth Manufacturing has a well-known reputation for building upon the several businesses it has acquired over the last 75 years.  Unverferth Mfg. saw a natural fit with the culture, the people and the innovative products at Orthman Manufacturing.  Major equipment and facility investments have been made at the Lexington locations over the past several years that present opportunities for increased production.

John McCoy, Orthman preceding owner and company president, stated “I have the utmost confidence that Unverferth Manufacturing will continue growing the Orthman name and most importantly take care of the respective employees. The culture and innovative drive at Orthman is very similar to that of Unverferth Manufacturing”. McCoy retains ownership of the Orthman Conveying Systems business and is excited about the prospect of expanding that venture in the years to come.

Larry Unverferth, company president, remarked “Orthman’s founder, Henry Orthman, was much like my father in that they both began with small ideas and grew those ideas into professional companies to help farmers become more efficient.  Unverferth Manufacturing is looking forward to expanding upon the current workforce by building on the brand’s presence in the farming community and expanding product offerings in the months and years ahead”. Unverferth Manufacturing operates three additional manufacturing facilities including the corporate headquarters in Kalida, OH, a Delphos, OH location, and one in Shell Rock, IA.  The company also has eight sales and service branch facilities strategically located across North America.  Apart from their home market USA, Orthman also exports its products to Africa and Eurasia.
