Agile Manufacturing to be Featured on Upcoming Episode of American Farmer
Granite, IA, March 05, 2012 --( Agile Manufacturing, producer of the Miller Loader and GrabTec, announced today that they will be participating in an upcoming episode of American Farmer.

Agile Manufacturing is responsible for bringing farmers the Miller Loader, one of the most rugged, yet maintenance free pieces of farm machinery available today. GrabTec continues to advance production capabilities for government, construction and agriculture.

On this episode of American Farmer, viewers will be taken behind the scenes, and learn how these high-tech pieces of machinery are making significant changes in the industry. Discovery Channel and Rural Television audiences will see first-hand how computer-aided modeling and advanced CNC and robotic manufacturing equipment help bring the Miller Loader and GrabTec to life.

“The demand to produce more with less (or the same) is what has driven the technological advances we see in today’s agriculture and construction operations. That demand will only increase,” says Michael Feilmeier of Agile Manufacturing. “Our products have to perform and they do. It is the success of our customers that has driven our success. We use advanced technology to create the technology that we put in the field.”

“Agile Manufacturing is a company with a long history, and a remarkable story to tell,” said Shirley White, senior producer for American Farmer. “Some of the processes behind the development of the Miller Loader and GrabTec are really going to amaze our viewers.”

About Agile Manufacturing:

Agile Manufacturing produces the Miller Loader and GrabTec product lines in its facility in rural Iowa. Combining world-class, state-of-the-art tools with highly skilled employees, Agile provides its customers with innovative designs, manufactured into high quality products.

Miller Loader traces its history back to the founder Elmer Miller, who first started patenting Loader technology in the 1940’s. In 1971 Elmer founded Miller Loaders Inc. based on the philosophy of strength and simplicity. Three generations and over forty years in business are testament that those concepts continue to be relevant today.

GrabTec products grew from the success of the Miller Loader produced wheel loader grapple, combined with the cleanup needs caused by hurricane Katrina. Tim Miller used today’s latest advanced design tools and applied his grandfather’s philosophy of strength and simplicity to create the first GrabTec grapple. That success has triggered additional models and the patent pending technology available in the product line today.
