By News release
Aug. 18, 2015 - Ag Growth International's (AGI) new Innovation Centre opened its doors in late July and offers their research and development team a collaborative environment with limited distractions allowing the team to develop and test cutting edge technology to better serve the agricultural industry in North America and the world.
Located in Oak Bluff, Manitoba, the new facility offers over 12,500 square feet of office, shop and storage space and is perfectly situated to be less than a 30 minute drive from the AGI main office and local divisions such as Westeel, Westfield and AGI Metal Fab.
"The opening of the Innovation Centre is indicative of our focus and dedication to develop new technology and innovative products. We are very excited to bring together the development teams from our divisions to identify and create synergies to improve integration amongst the AGI product lines," said Craig Nimegeers, vice president of engineering.
The AGI Innovation Centre will be the hub for developing standardized agricultural products amongst AGI's entire equipment catalogue. This commitment to quality has helped AGI become one of the leading manufacturers of grain handling, conditioning and storage equipment.
"Bringing this group of top engineers together at the Innovation Centre will significantly enhance new product development for all of the AGI brands. Innovation is a top priority at AGI and a key investment that separates our products and brands from a very competitive landscape. We are committed to investing in production, innovation and customer service to deliver an industry leading customer experience. This new Innovation Centre marks a re-invigorated dedication to continue to produce new products, improvements to existing products as well as improvements to production processes that deliver higher quality products for our customers," said Tim Close, president of AGI.
The AGI Innovation Centre is located at 125 Oakland Road Oak Bluff, Manitoba.
