In 1951 Abraham Plett sold his first two augers, choosing the name Westfield along with the now familiar bright yellow color, reminiscent of fields of golden wheat. In 1965, he turned control over to his sons.
In 1968, a brand new 8400 square foot factory was completed in Rosenort, Manitoba. A redesigned grain auger and expanded model line-up were introduced. Sales grew locally and then into the US and overseas. Ag Growth International (AGI) acquired Westfield Industries in 2000. An addition in October 2010 increased AGI Westfield’s manufacturing facilities to 175,000 square feet.
Over the last 60 years, AGI Westfield has developed and refined the finest grain augers available. With a commitment to farm proven designs and innovation, AGI Westfield has earned a solid reputation for superior quality products. As a result, AGI Westfield has grown to be the number one portable grain auger manufacturer.
