Yetter Manufacturing Company announces that on July 11, 2011, the company acquired the assets of AMCO Manufacturing, Inc., located in Yazoo City, Mississippi.

AMCO, founded in 1947, produces a wide range of primary tillage implements and farm equipment for the agricultural, wildlife, forest and construction industries. AMCO products are sold and serviced by 300 dealers across North America.

"The acquisition provides an opportunity for both companies to enter new markets to expand the reach of their product lines," says Pat Whalen, Yetter Manufacturing shareholder.

As a wholly owned subsidiary of Yetter, AMCO Manufacturing, Inc., will continue to be based in Yazoo City and will operate as a separate company under its current management team.

"Yetter is planning additional investments in AMCO, including improvements in manufacturing capabilities for current and future product lines," said Whalen. "Our focus is on preserving the long-standing AMCO tradition of delivering quality products to the marketplace."

Established in 1930 and based in Colchester, Illinois, Yetter Manufacturing Company is an industry leader in providing profitable solutions for production agriculture. Family owned for four generations, Yetter ships products all across North America.
