RCI has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the Ag-Bag product line from CNH Industrial America. Ag-Bag, based in St. Nazianz, Wisconsin, is the global leader in ag-bagging of forages and other agricultural commodities.
Effective November 25, 2019, RCI will handle all dealings of the business going forward. The products will be marketed under the Ag-Bag by RCI brand name.
Founded in 1978 by a group of 5 investors in the agricultural market, Ag-Bag began selling Silo Press products made in Germany. Over time, they adapted the products to meet the conditions of US markets. In 1989, Ag-Bag purchased the Silo Press business and patents.
Growing for many years, Ag-Bag was purchased by Miller St. Nazianz in 2004. In 2014, CNH Industrial America acquired Miller and the Ag-Bag Product Line.
RCI has a history of working closely with Ag-Bag products since 2011 by performing engineering and prototype manufacturing services for the product line.
With this acquisition, RCI will grow the tradition of building industry-leading bagging machinery and will bring all Ag-Bag dedicated employees from CNH to RCI. All operations for the product line will be relocated to RCI’s facilities in Mayville, Wisconsin.
RCI looks forward to growing the product line and global footprint of Ag-Bag in the years to come.
