Unverferth Acquires Force Unlimited

Unverferth Manufacturing has purchased Force Unlimited, manufacturer of Pro-Force fertilizer spreaders. Pro-Force has both pull-type and truck-mounted appication products. The aquired product line includes single- and multi-bin models with adjustable spinners designed to provide uniform application of granular fertilizers, cover crop seed, poultry litter, and compost.

To resist oxidation, all Pro-Force spreaders are built with 304 stainless steel. Precision-machined parts are designed to deliver accurate application of variable-rate perscriptions.

“As an established, highly regarded company, Unverferth Manufacturing has demonstrated their sincere desire to grow the Pro-Force line with expanded distribution and continued new product development,” says Force Unlimited founder, Stan Duncalf. “They will also provide the added manufacturing capabilites for continued sales growth and maintaining high-quality manufacturing and aftermarket support for the products I have nurtured for the last 17 years.” As part of the acquisition, Duncalf will join the Unverferth staff in a product research and development role.

President Larry Unverferth added, “We look forward to continuing the success of Stan’s innovative single- and multi-bin spreaders and expanding his vision to make the best, most innovative lineup of dry fertilizer spreaders for greater crop yields while reducing the environmental impact. This addition complements our current fertilizer application products and provides Unverferth with a complete lineup for agricultural retailers and farmers.”
