Kelly Tillage Establishes Rogersville, Missouri, Assembly Plant

Kelly Tillage, an Australian agricultural machinery manufacturer, plans to establish operations in Rogersville, Missouri. The $2 million project is expected to create 22 jobs.

The new location will mark the company’s first assembly facility outside of Australia.

“We are excited to be building a new assembly facility in Missouri to service the North American market,” said Calvin Stead, Managing Director and CEO of Kelly Tillage. “We have been selling machines in the U.S. for two decades and have experienced significant growth over that time. This is the next logical step in our global expansion.”

The project is being supported by the Missouri Works program, a tool that helps companies expand and retain workers by providing access to capital through withholdings or tax credits for job creation.

“Kelly Tillage’s new facility is further proof of Missouri’s status as an agricultural leader,” noted Maggie Kost, Acting Director of the Department of Economic Development. “Missouri’s strengths are fostering growth for communities and the businesses that invest in them. We’re grateful to our partners who contributed to this project and helped create more opportunities for Missourians in Rogersville.”

A global leader in the production of shallow tillage disc-chain technology, Kelly Tillage machines help farmers with sustainable seedbed preparation, manage residue in fields, and provide a mechanical weed control option.
