Over 40 Years of Innovation
Among the cornfields,
gravel roads and baseball diamonds that filled in the Manning, Iowa landscape in the late 1970s,the Puck family planted a seed. Countless hours spent in tractors working on family farms culminated in the creation of Puck Enterprises, a custom manure application company working with farmers in the rural area surrounding Manning.
A family-owned business
that began with vacuum trucks, we strived to create new solutions and solve problems in different ways, while always being stewards of the fertile Iowa farmland we call home. Today, these practices and core beliefs are still ingrained in our company DNA. The original seed planted by Ben and Kathy Puck sprouted and grew, fertilized by the hard work and bright minds of Iowa farmers.
As agricultural production changed
and increased in Iowa, we adapted—continuously growing and adding to what we had built. Through the years, an innovative spirit began to take hold at Puck. Who better to manufacture application equipment than those with firsthand experience using it?
Starting with hose carts,
we began manufacturing our own equipment, quickly finding it to be more effective and efficient than anything else on the market. Driven by progressive mindsets and an insatiable desire to keep improving, these innovations continued through the decades.
New PCE Designs
Hose carts, pump trailers, boom trucks and applicator swim arms; jumped manure applications for Puck Enterprises above 100 million gallons in 2006. The successful performance of the equipment spurred confidence to take the designs to the market for sale. PCE introduced the HC8 at the World Pork Expo in 2006.
Drawing on our work ethic,
application experience and local expertise to fabricate product after product, this side project slowly moved to the forefront of our company.
In 2007, the first Puck product was sold.
We haven’t looked back
since building our first hose cart in 2005. We continue pioneering new ground in every part of the agriculture industry—including the introduction of the world’s first agitation boat and other revolutionary technology that has shifted the way industries operate. We’ve built our reputation not by cutting corners, but through hard work and proven performance.
In the Spring of 2011,
footings were poured for a new warehouse and by the fall the much needed space was filling up with engines, pumps, hose and parts.
With a growing product line,
floor space started to get tight. The 2012 expansion tripled the manufacturing area at PCE and added a paint booth for powder-coating.
After massive growth,
we established the first international store in Osijek, Croatia. Taking the business to the next level with sales in Canada and overseas.
we built a new, larger warehouse, dedicated parts department and a new service shop.
Expanding our footprint,
Puck established a store in Worthing, SD.
in Farley, IA was established to continue to service customers closer to home.
