Founded in 1990 by Verlyn Fast, a farmer seeking to increase the productivity of his own operations, the mission of FAST Manufacturing Inc. is to provide quality products at competitive prices, backed by dependable service. Today, FAST represents farmers and engineers coming together to produce high quality sprayer and liquid fertilizer equipment that is both practical and productive. A large portion of FAST employees are, or have been, directly involved in farming operations. Our welders, fabricators, assemblers, and painters are skilled craftsmen who take pride in their work.
We realize how important it is for today’s farmers to continue to become more efficient and profitable, so our equipment is designed and built to make your job quick, accurate, and safe. Your investment in FAST equipment will pay dividends for years to come.
Our sprayers and applicators have been tested over thousands of acres. Throughout the history of our company, serious, long-term farmers have purchased FAST equipment to experience years of dependable, trouble-free performance. Our staff understands what today’s farmers demand, and design and build equipment to meet the challenge.
Our goal at FAST is to make you a life-long customer, one piece of equipment at a time.
Over the years FAST has continued to invest in equipment to increase the automation and consistency of our manufacturing process, to provide high quality machinery for farmers. Our manufacturing facility currently utilizes flat laser tables, a tube laser, a robotic welding cell, multiple press brakes, and a state of the art powder coat paint system.
Windom, MN Production Facility
In June of 2014 FAST opened a new 144,000 square foot production facility located in Windom, MN. This investment which also includes an automated, five stage wash and powder coat paint system, has allowed Fast to continue to manufacture high quality equipment that increases our customers’ productivity and profitability for years to come.
In 2015, FAST became a 100% employee owned company through a merger with FAST Global Solutions (formerly WASP, Inc.), based out of Glenwood, MN. This partnership has allowed both companies to diversify and continue to grow by devoting more resources on new product design and innovation as well as having more workforce and capacity available to meet customer demands. Together, both are committed to continuing to provide quality, dependable products while also pushing the envelope on new technologies to help increase the bottom line of your farming operation.
