Unverferth announces expansion and job creation at Shell Rock plant – KCHA News



A northern Iowa manufacturer is about to complete another expansion that is also expected to create more than five dozen new jobs.

Unverferth says the expansion of its 75,000 square foot factory at its Shell Rock plant is its 12th expansion since 1988 and means up to 65 job openings for welders, painters, robotic operators, machine operators and general assemblers.

In a statement, Larry Unverferth, company president, said, “This is an exciting time for Unverferth and the communities surrounding Shell Rock. We often say, “Employees are not numbers at Unverferth; they are family,” and we mean it. There’s no better feeling than creating high-quality jobs right here in the heart of the country. We’re proud to support American manufacturing and look forward to welcoming more people to our new factory and the Unverferth family.

The expansion adds a manufacturing production line where welders and assemblers will build Unverferth Pro-Force dry fertilizer spreaders, Unverferth NutriMax liquid fertilizer applicators, Top Air sprayers and high-capacity Brent grain wagons . It also adds manufacturing space for welders and assemblers to build Brent grain carts and grain cart track systems. A brand new paint booth is also being installed for increased capacity.

The company says the facility expansions are expected to be completed in February 2023.

Unverferth will hold open interviews on December 15 from noon to 6 p.m. at Shell Rock premises, with walk-ins welcome to apply for all vacancies.
