Seed Hawk keeps growing and to keep up with domestic and global demand, the Langbank-based manufacturer of precision seeding systems is adding another 55,000 square feet of space to its facility this spring. The $7.5 million expansion, Phase Two in their long-term plan, will triple their existing manufacturing capacity, bring everything under one roof and increase the size of their facility to 100,000 square feet.
“We are extremely excited about this expansion to our facility. The extra space will allow Seed Hawk to continue growing well into the 21st century,” said Seed Hawk President Pat Beaujot. “With this expansion we can increase capacity to meet demand and maintain the quality that Seed Hawk has become synonymous with.”
Phase One of Seed Hawk’s expansion took place in 2007, shortly after partnering with Swedish ag equipment manufacturer Vaderstad Verken. Through the construction of a new corporate office and assembly plant, they expanded their facility to 45,000 square feet. Since then, new product developments and a larger demand for the Seed Hawk drills have the company busier than ever.
“We need the extra space to do what we do best: provide the most grower profitable precision seeding solutions in the world,” said Beaujot. “R&D and manufacturing products of the highest quality will always remain the cornerstone of Seed Hawk — now, we can just do more of it.”
Since 1992, Seed Hawk has been building precision seeding systems to better equip farmers and improve agricultural practices. Seed Hawk is an international manufacturer of state-of-the-art, zero-tillage seeding systems, sold in Canada, the U.S., Australia and Eastern Europe.
