Date Posted: March 13, 2013
Winnipeg, MB (March 13, 2013) -- ArrowCorp Inc., a leader in the design and manufacture of grain cleaning equipment, is pleased to announce that its Kipp-Kelly division is celebrating 100 years of manufacturing excellence.
In 1913, Theodore Kipp and George Kelly – both experienced engineers with backgrounds in the milling industry – formed the Kipp-Kelly company in Winnipeg. Together they patented the first Rotary Oatmeal Cutter in 1926.
Kipp-Kelly continued to diversify and started manufacturing Kipp-Kelly Gravity Tables and Destoners in the mid 1930’s.
"Kipp-Kelly equipment has earned a worldwide reputation in the milling industry for reliability and outstanding performance," says Rick Gergatz, ArrowCorp V.P. Product Development and Technical Sales. "We are excited to mark this milestone in Kipp-Kelly's history of achievement."
Kipp-Kelly became a Winnipeg and Canadian agricultural institution and leader with an aggressive sales force headed by Theodore’s son Robert Kipp, who pioneered international equipment sales. Kipp-Kelly was one of the first North American companies to exhibit and sell equipment into the former Soviet Union (USSR).
The company was acquired by ArrowCorp in 1996.
Kipp-Kelly equipment maintains a prominent presence under the ArrowCorp umbrella with sales in more than 70 countries throughout Europe, Northern Africa, and the Middle East.
ArrowCorp currently operate two manufacturing facilities, Premier Grain Cleaner Company, New Brighton, Minnesota and the ArrowCorp facility in Winnipeg, Canada. ArrowCorp products include Canada’s oldest manufactured line of specific grain cleaners, including gravity separators, industrial concentrators, destoners, and rotary granulators.
