Today, we're joined by Anthony Montag of Montag Manufacturing. Anthony is General Manager of the operation, founded by his dad Roger Montag, who still oversees the engineering and product development.
Incorporated in 2005, Montag is the “youngest” of the companies featured in our podcast series on family-run shortline equipment companies. As newcomers, they didn’t have a lot of history to fall back onto ... they had to make things up as they went. We’ve have the pleasure to know Anthony and Roger for most of their company’s official history.
In this podcast is brought to you by Ingersoll Tillage we'll share a number of interesting facts about the Montag crew, Roger’s dry fertilizer meter innovations and the early days of NewMatics, Inc., Montag’s incorporation and rapid rise before big struggles came in year 4, and the order that put them on the map and brought dealers knocking on the farmhouse door. And how Anthony and 5 of his homeschooled siblings are transitioning the business to a professional design and manufacturing enterprise -- with high demands from the OEMs to boot.
