“Radius Steel’s innovative, flexible manufacturing processes and integrated technologies enable even the most challenging and complicated requirements to be met.”

Sioux City, Iowa – May 16th, 2012: Radius Steel Fabrication, a division of SOO Tractor, is pleased to announce today that it has entered into an agreement with Wil-Rich, a manufacturer of agriculture tillage equipment to manufacture air drill frames that will be used in 30 - 60 foot air seeding equipment. Headquartered in Wahpeton, North Dakota, Wil-Rich provides a wide variety of innovative and durable tillage equipment to help producers worldwide cut costs and increase yields.

Air drills are ideal for use in both no-till and reduced-till small-grain, cereal and soybean operations to ensure precise, consistent seed placement in varying field and soil conditions. Large-scale air drills allow producers to seed more acres in less time.

Radius Steel has the capabilities to manufacture this type of large product. Radius has one of the largest powder paint systems in the Midwest and has welding positioning fixtures capable of handling the size and weight of these types of drill frames. Radius Steel has overhead crane capabilities throughout the plant, optimized to move large, heavy products from fabrication, to welding, to paint, and to assembly.

“Like Radius Steel/SOO Tractor, Wil-Rich has a rich heritage of excellence, earned by listening to and directly meeting the needs of its customers for decades. We are very pleased to have been selected to work with this Company, who has a worldwide reputation for innovative and durable equipment,” says Ida Covi, CEO of Radius Steel.
