Conveyors inc. was established in 1974 at a time when the conveyor industry was in need of a reliable and trustworthy supplier. To fill that need, 6 people decided to pool their many years of experience to form a company that could provide screw conveyors dependably. These six were Jo Kathryn “Mickey” West, Dalton Grisham, Kenneth Collins, Dan Baucum, Odis Akins, and Clifford Rayburn.
The company was started on a very meager budget in a 2000 square foot tin building in the middle of a cotton patch outside of Venus, Texas. As customers learned of their existence, they began to place orders as fast as the six of them could produce it and get it out the door. As demand continued to increase Conveyors Inc. began to hire more employees. Most of which were top employees in the conveyor industry. They too, were looking for a company to utilize their skills, and that would treat them with respect. Within a short 6 months, Conveyors Inc. had purchased a 45,000 square foot building in Mansfield, Texas. Customers responded to the increase in capacity quickly and Conveyors Inc. continued to grow rapidly.
Today, Conveyors Inc. is still located on the same ten acres in the Mansfield Texas Industrial Park located outside the Dallas/Fort Worth area, but now has over 100,000 square feet of manufacturing space, with a distribution area that extends throughout North America and worldwide.
Conveyors Inc continues to provide service for existing and new equipment including complete engineered systems covering screw conveyors, bucket elevators, drag conveyors, vertical screw lifts, mixers and blenders. Materials of all compositions from carbon steel to most exotic alloys have found application in the various markets serviced by Conveyors Inc. Custom design applications include food grade systems, grain and feed installations, abrasion resistant units, sewage treatment facilities, and the chemical industry with its wide variety of needs.
Conveyors Inc. is dedicated in continuing to provide the same quality products and services in an honest and reliable way that the six partners had inspired.
