Hanson Silo was founded in Lake Lillian, Minnesota, in 1916 by Emil Hanson, a local farmer who envisioned a better silo product for himself and for his neighbors. His goal: manufacture an improved silo at the best price with the lowest upkeep. For over 100 years and through four generations, the Hanson family has been involved with agriculture and has grown to symbolize quality, economy and dependability.
The family farming tradition has remained at Hanson Silo, as well as the commitment to producing the best quality product for the dollar. The development of new Hanson products is the culmination of this commitment. We excel in a range of areas, including livestock feed storage and handling equipment, grain storage, precast concrete products and powder coating industries. Fine quality materials, pride in personal workmanship and simplicity in engineering are the trademarks of Hanson Silo.
From our first silo built in 1916 that held 25 tons of feed to our 3.5-million-bushel grain storage bunkers of today, Hanson Silo has been resilient and steadfast, growing a network of customers and suppliers who have come to know and depend on our remarkable silos and agriculture products. We’re sure you’ll be talking Hanson – now, and for generations to come.
