Our Company

The Ray-Man Story

Ray-Man, Inc. is a family-owned business located in Southeastern Iowa. The company was formed in 1975 by Ray and JoEllen Eakins.  It’s now owned and operated by their
children, Brian Eakins (President), Bob Eakins (Vice-President), Melinda Eakins (Secretary/Treasurer) and Lori Eakins Beckermann (shareholder).

Ray and JoEllen started the company to fill a void that existed in the agricultural industry at the time.  The first piece of equipment produced by the company in 1975 was a conveyor to load agricultural lime from a dump truck to a spreader truck.  Ray’s innovative design still exists today as the Floater Loader Conveyor.

Through years of commitment to their vision, Ray-Man, Inc. has grown from a small welding shop to an international supplier of agricultural equipment.   The company continues to invest in advanced technology and computer controlled fabricating machines to produce the highest quality conveyors and tenders available in the marketplace.

We are proud of the products we build, and we’re committed to a high level of customer service.  Our success stems from lasting relationships with our employees, dealers, customers, and suppliers.  We hope that you will be part of our family.
