SHEFFIELD, Iowa – Sukup Manufacturing Co. is pleased to announce that it has formed a partnership with OPIsystems, an industry leader in grain management and monitoring technology. Sukup now exclusively offers OPI’s Advanced Grain Management technology to its dealers, and recently introduced their platform at a dealer event in Sheffield.
“Sukup is a company that is embracing the use of technology in agriculture, and in fact, we create some of our own control systems in house. However, we feel that grain bin sensors are highly specialized and an important investment for our customers, and that OPI creates the best grain monitoring system on the market,” explained Matt Koch, an electrical engineer at Sukup.
“Our mission is to store and protect the world’s grain supply,” said Charles Sukup, president of Sukup Manufacturing. “We are pleased to have partnered with OPI systems, and we feel their technology will help provide peace of mind, increased storage optimization and aid in loss prevention to Sukup customers.”
OPI’s platform allows farm and commercial producers the ability to remotely monitor and manage real time conditions of stored commodities within their bins.
“We are excited to announce our recent partnership with Sukup Manufacturing. This partnership supports Sukup’s continued advancement of value added and innovative solutions to the industry by promoting and offering OPI’s Advanced Grain Management technology through its extensive dealer network”, stated Marco Hunstad, Chief Revenue Officer at OPIsystems Inc.. “Working with the Sukup team will continue to strengthen OPI’s position as the leader in the global market for advanced grain management and optimization.”
