Art’s Way acquires Agro Trend, Now Offers Rear-Mounted Snow Blowers

ARMSTRONG, IOWA, January 13, 2014 – With the recent acquisition of Agro Trend, Art’s Way Manufacturing Co., Inc. (NASDAQ: ARTW), a leading manufacturer and distributor of agricultural machinery, now offers a complete line of snow blowers.

Formerly a division of Rojac Industries, Inc., Agro Trend is located in Clifford, Ontario, Canada. Prior to the acquisition, Art’s Way had been a distributor of the Argo snow blowers. The acquisition will also bolster distribution of current Art’s Way products into Canada.

To meet virtually every snow moving need, there are currently 28 snow blower models in the Art’s Way lineup in four different categories: Compact, Standard, Farm Utility and Heavy Duty. Cutting widths range from 54 inches to 10 feet and cutting heights span from 24 to 38 inches.

For directing snow, snow blowers in the Compact, Standard and Farm Utility lines feature a chute deflector and crank chute turner and have a hydraulic chute turner and hydraulic deflector as options. The four snow blowers in the Heavy Duty line include a hydraulic chute turner and hydraulic deflector as standard.

All models operate smoothly with a high-efficiency fan. They are ruggedly constructed from formed steel for a long operating life with minimum maintenance.

Art’s Way Manufacturing will lease the facility in Clifford, Ontario and plans on continuing manufacturing, marketing and sales from the Canadian location.
