RCI Announces Acquisition of Ag-Bag

RCI has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the Ag-Bag product line from CNH Industrial America. Ag-Bag, based in St. Nazianz, Wisconsin, is the global leader in ag-bagging of forages and other agricultural commodities.

“We are excited about continuing the tradition of quality, durability and best-in-class performance of the Ag-Bag product line at RCI.  We are committed to supporting the dealer network, growing the product line to serve future forage needs, and providing premier product support for all Ag-Bag products,” says Randy Clark, Founder of RCI.

Effective November 25, 2019, RCI will handle all dealings of the business going forward.  The products will be marketed under the Ag-Bag by RCI brand name.

Founded in 1978 by a group of 5 investors in the agricultural market, Ag-Bag began selling Silo Press products made in Germany.  Over time, they adapted the products to meet the conditions of US markets.  In 1989, Ag-Bag purchased the Silo Press business and patents.

Growing for many years, Ag-Bag was purchased by Miller St. Nazianz in 2004.  In 2014, CNH Industrial America acquired Miller and the Ag-Bag Product Line.

RCI was founded in 2005 with a focus on hay and forage equipment for commercial operations.  In 2007, RCI expanded into forage plot research equipment for Fortune 500 seed and chemical companies, many land grant universities, and the United States Department of Agriculture.  RCI also offers engineering and manufacturing services to OEMs of agricultural equipment.

RCI has a history of working closely with Ag-Bag products since 2011 by performing engineering and prototype manufacturing services for the product line.

With this acquisition, RCI will grow the tradition of building industry-leading bagging machinery and will bring all Ag-Bag dedicated employees from CNH to RCI. All operations for the product line will be relocated to RCI’s facilities in Mayville, Wisconsin.

RCI looks forward to growing the product line and global footprint of Ag-Bag in the years to come.
