Quality Plus - They Can Handle It!

Fayette County Business Spotlight!

As a farmer, Dan Forsyth was unhappy with the way his conventional conveyor was handling grain. As an innovator, he decided to do something about it! In 1994, Dan developed the 800 Series Conveyor with a unique design that quite literally turned things around in terms of conveyors. In trying to devolop a better conveyance system, Dan found that by reversing the direction of the conveyor belt, maximum inclines could be increased to 45 degrees without grain rollback or pinning the grain and damaging it.

In 1995, Dan founded Quality Plus Mfg., Inc. Quality Plus continued to improve its Reverse Rotation Technology (RRT) conveyor designs and developed several additional product lines of seed and grain handling equipment.  Dan holds four patents for agricultural equipment improvements. In 2011, Quality Plus moved from the farm to the industrial park and is now located in Oelwein's Industrial Park. From the new manufacturing site, Quality Plus serves its agricultural clients with a staff of 6 to 8, providing personalized service direct to farmers and seed dealers.

In addition to a number of conveyor products, Quality Plus manufactures on-farm seed treatment systems, seed treatment dryers, and an anhydrous flow assist product that allows for consistent application of NH3 no matter the temperature. Dan is excited about his products and loves doing business from Oelwein. He has plenty of room to ramp up production in his 60,000 SF facility, which will be much needed as the innovations keep coming! Visit Quality Plus online at: www.qualityplusmfg.com.
