Frederick, MD – June 4, 2013 – Conrad Weaver of ConjoStudios, LLC announces Total Manufacturing Company (TMCO INC) a of Lincoln, Neb., and its National Manufacturing equipment division, as a Silver Sponsor for the Great American Wheat Harvest
Established 1974, TMCO specializes in one-stop, concept-to-completion metal manufacturing services from any stage of design, fabrication, paint, assembly and makes parts for some of the world’s top pivot irrigation, weed control, seed planting and harvesting equipment companies. As a division of TMCO working directly with the United States Dept. of Agriculture (USDA), National Manufacturing, produces equipment utilized in the initial processing stages of wheat breeding, storage and milling, test baking and also in product development and quality control.
With its roots deep in the agriculture industry, TMCO and National Manufacturing work with wheat breeders, food research laboratories, universities and companies worldwide that all have direct links to the food supply chain,” says Weaver. “This association further helps our efforts to better connect consumers to those who produce their food as we share the stories of North
America’s wheat growers and custom harvesters.”
Dan Moore, director of operations of National Mfg., Division of TMCO Inc., says for companies that depend on consistency in taste, texture and appearance, and in high-quality wheat, the analysis machines produced at National Mfg., allow for continuous testing of every batch and the monitoring of any necessary correction. “Our equipment exemplifies how much the owners of TMCO, Roland Temme, Tony Marquez and John Albers, are dedicated to the grain and food industry, Moore says. “As soon as they
learned there was a documentary being made about the wheat harvest, they wanted to know how they could be of assistance.”
Since 1939, National Mfg., has been involved with all facets of the wheat industry and worked with the industry leaders who are committed to the challenge of investing all of their time, finances, equipment and hard work for as long as it takes to see the job to completion.
“This is a mindset TMCO INC is familiar with and the Great American Wheat Harvest is a true story that everyone should experience,” Moore says.
TMCO and National Manufacturing Company now join other Great American Wheat Harvest major sponsors including: John Deere, MacDon Industries, U.S. Custom Harvesters Inc., Association of Canadian Custom Harvesters, Oklahoma Wheat Commission, and
