Renn Mill Center Inc. has announced their new strategic partnership in the form of a distribution agreement with H&S Manufacturing Company Inc.

Both companies are manufacturers of feed processing, hay, and forage equipment. Under the new agreement, Renn will help to expand the Wisconsin based manufacturer’s full line of manure spreaders, feed processing equipment, and hay and forage equipment in Western Canada.

Renn will also work with H&S as their distributor for Australia. H&S and Renn will look for other ways to collaborate in the future.

“While we are equipment manufacturers first, our goal is to provide farmers and ranchers with innovative, reliable, and serviceable equipment. Our connection with farmers and ranchers allows us to easily distribute the H&S line of equipment through our existing channels. H&S’s commitment to quality manufacturing and excellent service fits perfectly with our commitment to our customers,” said Renn Mill Center Inc. President Doug Hilsabeck.

“This partnership is an excellent fit. It creates a peer to peer connection that allows us to share industry knowledge, manufacturing expertise, and marketing resources to help both companies provide quality innovative products to the agriculture industry.”

The Renn Roller Mill has a history of over 60 years, and for the past 25 years they have been produced in Lacombe, Alberta. In 2016, Renn purchased Jiffy Products, whose product line includes bale processors and hay rakes. With its manufacturing facility located in Lacombe, Alberta, Renn specializes in the development, manufacturing, distribution, and sales of hay and feed processing equipment, as well as grain bagging equipment. Their Central Alberta location is ideal to warehouse equipment and parts.

H&S Manufacturing Co. Inc. has been manufacturing quality agricultural equipment since 1967. The company started as a manufacturer of feeding equipment for Wisconsin dairy farms and has become a globally trusted supplier of agricultural equipment including rakes, manure spreaders, grinder mixers, and bale wrappers.

“As a fellow manufacturer of equipment for the feed processing and the hay and forage industries, Renn Mill Center Inc.’s partnership provides an opportunity to expand our footprint in Canada and Australia,” said H&S President Craig Harthoorn.

“We have full confidence in the ability of Renn to provide current and future H&S customers in both Canada and Australia with the support they need, as both of our companies share the values for innovative equipment, quality manufacturing, and top-level aftermarket support. By offering both lines of equipment, farmers and ranchers will benefit more than if they were working with each company independently. The two companies will be able to grow quicker and more efficiently through this partnership than if we were to do it alone.”
