Unverferth Manufacturing Co., Inc., and Thurston Manufacturing have announced that Unverferth will buy the Blu-Jet product line. When the sale is complete, Unverferth will relocate the manufacturing operation.
Thurston has products other than its Blu-Jet line and intends to explore opportunities to keep the facility working once the Blu-Jet line is transitioned.
“Blu-Jet products will expand our current offerings in fertilizer application and tillage products and bring a wider variety of quality implements to offer agricultural producers and suppliers across North America,” said President Larry Unverferth. “As with other lines we have brought into the Unverferth product family, we envision continuing with the Blu-Jet brand and its strong heritage that has been built and nurtured by the Jensen family since 1971.”
Thurston Manufacturing CEO Ryan Jensen said the company “is excited to see the Blu-Jet brand and product offering it has developed over the last 48 years transition to such a well-respected family business that will continue to build on Blu-Jet’s strong industry reputation.”
Both companies expect to offer uninterrupted manufacturing and service to customers during the transition.
