On behalf of all of the Sweet Team, I would like to congratulate the recipients of our 2021 Sweet Top Dealer Awards!

It is our honor and privilege to present each of these valued and loyal Sweet dealers with their individual awards as a sincere expression of our gratitude for all of their continued support, impeccable customer service and outstanding sales in 2021.

As we all struggled through a second year both personally and professionally with the COVID-19 pandemic, we have also been blessed with sustainable sales during an economic roller coaster. We thank you for your patience as we have experienced supply chain issues and long lead times, multiple price increases, freight increases/delays and workforce shortages. We can only hope for some relief in all arenas, sooner rather than later.

Your Sweet family would like to recognize each Top Dealer with heartfelt thanks and appreciation. All of us have truly missed the fellowship and fun that we shared together in person. We hope to see everyone face to face, heart to heart this year! Thank you, and best wishes for a wonderful and prosperous 2022!

Tales from the Field
K&S Millwrights: Commodity Blenders
Commodity Blenders

Located in Beloit, Ohio is our Top Dealer, K&S Millwrights, who was awarded the W. Dean Sweet Founder Award for its 2021 equipment sales.

K&S Millwrights had several successful projects throughout 2021, which led the firm to the number one spot. One of the most notable was building a brand new feed mill for Commodity Blenders.

This new installation features two Silver-Sweet® Bantam II Bucket Elevators with a 1,300 BPH capacity for processing corn. These two Bucket Elevators then feed corn into two 9" Round Bottom Flite-Veyor® Conveyors, taking all products to square bins.

This site also features two Ace II Silver-Sweet® Bucket Elevators which process 7,700 BPH. One Bucket Elevator handles salt, lime, and dical, and the other handles mixed feed ingredients.
Thank you to Commodity Blenders and K&S Millwrights for making this new installation Sweet®!
K&S Millwrights was founded in 1978 by Kurt and Diane Klingelhofer. In 2013, Kurt and Diane sold the business to Gary Irwin, who had joined the company back in 1996. Since buying K&S, Gary and his wife Stacy have been focused on expanding its operations and territory, leaving their customers highly satisfied. Recently, K&S acquired its Johnstown facility, which has been yet another stride in its mission to expand the company's current operations in Ohio. Recently Gary's son, Curtis, accepted the position of running the fabrication shop at their Beloit, Ohio facility!

K&S Millwrights has been selling Sweet® equipment since 2006, having installed it in 98 different facilities.

Cheers to 16 years and counting, and congratulations Curtis on your new position!

United Farmers Cooperative

Coming out of Red Oak, Iowa is our Top Dealer, Bruce Supplies, who was awarded the Sweet® Gold Crown Award for its 2021 equipment sales. One of the most notable projects from 2021 was United Farmers Cooperative, located in Red Oak, Iowa!

This facility incorporated one of our newest product lines, the Sweet® Enclosed Belt Conveyor. This site features two new Sweet® Enclosed Belt Conveyors totaling 700 feet. This installation also features a Silver-Sweet® Titan Bucket Elevator and two 30” FC Belt Conveyors, which work together to load and unload the storage facilities.
A special thank you to United Farmers Cooperative and Bruce Supplies for choosing Sweet Manufacturing for this expansion!
Bruce Supplies & Construction is a family-owned business incorporated in 1968 by Kenneth J. Bruce. Today, his son, Scott, accompanied by his wife Jen, continue to carry on the traditions of this agricultural construction company. Scott and Jen's son, Collin, is the third generation to join the family business.

Bruce Supplies has been offering Sweet® equipment since 1987. Over the years, the company has continually experienced great success, providing over 50 facilities with our equipment.

Cheers to 35 years and to many more!

Coming from Lima, Peru, is our Top Dealer, SISTEPRO, who was awarded the Silver-Sweet® Award for its 2021 equipment sales. One of the most notable projects from 2021 was its expansion project with RINTI S.A., located in Lima, Peru!

This facility features two 102’ sections of 14” Round Bottom Flite-Veyor® Conveyors at a capacity of 98 MTPH. These conveyors are paired with our Silver-Span® Conveyor Support Walk-way System for ease of maintenance.
Our equipment is responsible for loading and unloading a combined 2,000 Tons for ten different silos at this facility!
A special thank you to RINTI S.A. and SISTEPRO S.A. for utilizing Sweet® equipment in this impressive expansion!
SISTEPRO S.A. (SISTEMAS Y EQUIPOS PROFESIONALES S.A.) was founded by Antonio Rucoba in 2001 in Lima, Peru. SISTEPRO quickly developed into a fully functional engineering firm in the ag industry, offering millwright services capable of tackling large projects. From feed mills to port storage projects with over 100K tons of capacity in the port of Callao, Peru for the largest importer of crops in the region.
Antonio has been offering Sweet® equipment since 2002. Over the last 20 years, the company has continually experienced great success in Peru and has helped the brewery and wheat milling industries grow their capacity so that most of them are exporting food products to all of Latin America.
Cheers to 20 years, Antonio, and to continued success!
