The Joint Venture will combine Norwood’s significant market experience, technologies, engineering, supply chain and manufacturing resources with Clean Seed’s award-winning SMART technologies.
Norwood was founded by Bob Norwood with a main goal of distributing high quality, reliable agricultural products to local farmers. Dan Norwood joined his father, Bob, in 1992 and succeeded him as sole owner in 2003.
Dan has successfully navigated the progression of his business from that of a distributor of agricultural equipment to becoming a manufacturer of Norwood product lines of tillage, seed tenders, grain handling and livestock related products, including substantial OEM production with major mainline agriculture equipment manufacturers.
150 Production Employees State of the art equipment:
Norwood’s 180,000 square foot facilities house the latest in lasers, milling, robotic welding and powder coat paint line equipment, along with a growing workforce of over 150 employees. Norwood is well positioned for further growth, on its 35-acre footprint of land just south of Fargo along I-29.
The Joint Venture will provide Clean Seed a clear path to commercializing its SMART technologies without the financial requirements of a manufacturing plant thus dramatically reducing its capital requirements going forward.
