Equipment Manufacturing

From heavy machinery to farm implement, McPherson is perfectly positioned for equipment manufacturing. Located in the heart of the nation’s breadbasket and home to a high concentration of livestock production, the experience and ties to agriculture can’t be matched. McPherson is also uniquely situated near some of the world’s hubs for aviation and wind production and can easily serve those industries.

The Brain Trust

With more than 17 manufacturers, McPherson knows equipment production. Our area technical colleges specialize in machining and assembly, making our workforce some of the most qualified in the world for your production needs. Agriculture is the blood of every Kansas. We personally know the people who will use ag equipment on their farms and ranches, and Kansas is a hub of ag manufacturing. With two major agricultural engineering universities within 100 miles (Kansas State University and Oklahoma State University), we’re situated to access and attract top talent.
