Intraco, Inc. was founded December 22, 1971, as an import/export company for agricultural equipment. During the early years, Intraco, Inc. began distributing many lines of equipment both in the USA and many foreign markets.
The intense desire to satisfy the needs of the agriculture industry gave Intraco, Inc. a chance to improve a sector of the industry that was lacking efficiency, the feeding system. Intraco, Inc. decided to manufacture and market its own line of feed conveying equipment with the trade name CABLEVEY.
The first CABLEVEY system was installed in Ontario, Canada in 1974. Extensive research and marketing of the CABLEVEY feeding system began later that year, involving shipments to Canada, Australia, and England. Since that time, thousands of CABLEVEY systems have been manufactured and installed in 47 states and 35 foreign countries. The component parts of the CABLEVEY system, totaling over 470, are manufactured and fabricated by 50 suppliers located throughout the Midwest USA
Over 300 people are involved in CABLEVEY systems fabricating and marketing chain, including manufacture, assembly, packing, crating, shipping, sales, service, office and administrative personnel.
Intraco's percentage of exports to total sales has grown from 25% in 1974 to 50% at the present time.
The President of Intraco, Inc. was presented the President's "E" Award, a certificate signed in the name of the President of the United States by the Secretary of Commerce, at a special ceremony held in conjunction with a World Livestock & Poultry Seminar in August of 1979.
In 1985, Intraco applied it's knowledge obtained from agriculture conveying and began to develop products for the industrial markets. 1990 was the first installation of the 4" diameter tubular conveyor now being used for a wide variety of materials and installed in various applications.
Representatives of Intraco, Inc. have been involved with trade delegations going to underdeveloped and emerging countries coordinated by the United States Department of Commerce.
Intraco, Inc. will continue to be a leader in the industrial and agricultural markets with an aggressive approach to the manufacturing and marketing of CABLEVEY and distribution of it along with many other products serving the entire World.
