Celebrating 70 Years in Business

Employees and retirees of Automatic Feed recently gathered at the nearby Ridgeville Legion to celebrate the company’s 70th anniversary.  Throughout the years, AFCo’s success has been due to solid OEM and Tier supplier relationships, extensive reinvestment, international business development and good labor relations, as well as dedication to community.  This milestone presented a wonderful opportunity for AFCo families, present and past, to hear from CEO Peter Beck and President Nathan Weaks and enjoy food, gifts and games.  It was a great event for everyone, and we look forward to as many more years going forward.
