Yargus Manufacturing is a full-service company with experienced engineering and design, marketing, production, installation, transportation and technical assistance personnel to serve you.
Founded as Layco in 1968 by Lloyd Allen Yargus, the company started out as a conveyor repair and reconditioning shop that also built truck bumpers for area farmers and fertilizer dealers. Over the years, Layco’s product line developed to include fertilizer blending and conveying systems. A little over 20 years ago, Lloyd’s son Larry acquired Layco, changing the name of the company to Yargus Manufacturing, Inc., and developing it into one of the most respected manufacturers in the material handling industry.
Today, the Yargus Manufacturing complex in Marshall, Illinois spreads over six acres, with 150,000 square feet for sales, engineering and manufacturing. The company ships Layco equipment all over the world for fertilizer and other material handling uses. Over the years it has become a sought-after equipment supplier because of its unique ability to successfully custom-design and manufacture equipment to meet customers needs. Larry’s three daughters - Anne Sheehy, Kate Shaffer and Meg Yargus - are now integrally involved in the company’s operation.
In 2016, Yargus was acquired by Ag Growth International (AGI) (TSX:AFN).
