Hutchinson Solid growth through innovation and product line diversification!
On April 1, 1958, two local investors founded Hutchinson Manufacturing Inc. in Clay Center, Kansas. The original product line had originated in Hutchinson, Kansas and the Hutchinson name was branded and is utilized to this day. The original Hutchinson Manufacturing built a line of grain handling and related equipment. The line included utility augers, belt drive portable augers and a roller mill.
On February 1, 1968, Hutchinson was sold to Royal Industries, a small conglomerate that managed diversified companies. Royal Industries was later purchased by Lear Siegler in 1977, a larger corporation specializing in the management of diversified companies in many industries. In 1979, Royal Industries was fully merged into Lear Siegler. TIC United Corp. purchased Hutchinson from a holding company August 11, 1987 after Lear Siegler was officially dissolved. Then in May 2001 Hutchinson/Mayrath was purchased by GLOBAL INDUSTRIES INC. of Grand Island, Nebraska.
