Since 1995, A.J. Sackett and Sons and Waconia Manufacturing have been linked as partners in providing engineering and equipment to the fertilizer industry. As of January 1, 2017, the two companies, under the same ownership, consolidated further by aligning their sales force and product lines and will become Sackett-Waconia.

A.J. Sackett and Sons, founded in 1897, and Waconia Manufacturing, founded in 1959, have sold equipment in 65 countries and 50 states. By consolidating, they combine 180 years of innovation, sales and manufacturing experience in fertilizer equipment and systems design.

"The combination of Sackett-Waconia is not only the right thing to do; it is the smart thing to do for our customers, our employees and our industry," said Larry Taylor, Sackett-Waconia CEO. "Together, we offer strong engineering capabilities and expanded product lines while capitalizing on our customer focus, integrity and desire to be the best at what we do."

Sackett-Waconia employs 200 people between its four U.S. locations in Baltimore, MD, Waconia, MN, Norwood Young America, MN, and Wilson, NC, plus a fifth location in Araxá, Brazil. Combining the companies will streamline engineering, product design and customer service and will support efficient equipment fabrication.
