For more than 300,000 customers, FarmTek does it all. “There are 20,000 to 30,000 different items we carry,” explains Matt Niaura, senior vice president. “We carry everything from lighting, electrical, ventilation, hardware and floor mats to miscellaneous farming products.”
Operating under parent Engineering Services & Products Co. (ESAPCO) of South Windsor, Conn., FarmTek was founded in 1979 as a catalog merchandiser. Today, about 60 percent of its offerings are manufactured in-house at its enormous 40-acre, three-building facility in Dyersville, Iowa and 40 percent are distributed products through its supply chain, VP of Operations Dave Buchheit says.
