Valmont Industries Inc发表评论(0)编辑词条

Early History

It all began with farming. In 1946, after serving in World War II as a Marine, Robert B. Daugherty began looking for a good business opportunity...and found one. Daugherty recognized the potential of a small manufacturing company owned by an inventor named Sam McCleneghan. After careful consideration, he invested virtually his entire life savings – $5,000 – in the company. The company, which was situated on a farm just west of Valley, Nebraska, was named Valley Manufacturing and began by building farm elevators.

In 1967, the name of the company was changed to Valmont Industries, Inc., to avoid confusion with other companies using Valley in their name. The name Valmont is a combination of two Nebraska communities located on either side of the first Valmont plant...Valley and Fremont.

Eventually, the new company contracted with Sears, Roebuck to supply 1,000 farm elevators. They soon added speed jacks, wagon hoists, universal joints, hay racks, stalk cutters, minimum tillage tools, and a front-end loader to their product line. When recession hit the farm industry in 1952, Valley Manufacturing began looking for ways to diversify. That search led down the road to Columbus, Nebraska, where a visionary was struggling to breathe life into a revolutionary idea: the center pivot.

Valmont Today
Valmont currently operates from 53 facilities located in seventeen countries around the world. The Company is headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska, and employs over 6,000 highly trained personnel worldwide, with approximately 1,500 located in Nebraska.

Throughout its long manufacturing history, Valmont has consistently sought the best ways to apply advancing technology to products and processes alike. "We will remain focused on what we do best," said Mogens C. Bay, Valmont's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We see ample opportunities to expand our businesses globally and in North America and, over time, we expect our investments around the world to further accelerate our growth. Our performance is the direct result of the skills, dedication and hard work of each member of the Valmont team.
