SurePoint Ag Systems was founded in 2007 to help producers become more efficient by applying the right product, in the right place, at the right rate.
SurePoint Ag Systems was founded in August 2007 by Blaine Ginther, Josh Wolters, and Matt Wolters. At that time, GPS technology was being rapidly adopted by many farmers. With this new GPS technology came an opportunity to help producers more precisely apply fertilizer, chemical, seed, and other crop inputs. SurePoint was created to help producers become more efficient by applying the right product, in the right place, at the right rate.
In January 2008, SurePoint had seven full and part-time employees. At that time, our warehouse was a steel building erected around 1950 and our office was the 1930’s farmhouse on the same farmstead. The only investors in the business were the founding owners. To succeed, we had to generate cash by making sales immediately. More importantly, we began building relationships with our customers that set the stage for five years of impressive growth. After a very busy spring in 2011, we were bursting out of our initial facilities. We worked with our landlord to plan for new facilities on the same site that would allow SurePoint to continue to grow. We moved into the new warehouse in December 2011 and the offices in March 2012. In June 2013, we expanded the warehouse again. This allowed the old steel building to be completely remodeled into an engineering building. In December 2013, the engineering team moved into their new offices. They now have 2500 square feet of office space with 2500 square feet of lab and test engineering space in one building.
2014 saw the launch of QuickDraw Fully Automated Spray Tender System. QuickDraw is a 100% SurePoint-designed product utilizing all engineering disciplines. The QuickDraw system has become a core SurePoint product, and it set the stage for an even broader line of advanced spray tender products. Also in 2014, we added LiquiShift, which has proven to be another foundational SurePoint product. It provided growers with a much broader application range for on-the-go liquid application. In 2016, we launched Marksman, a fully automated fertigation and chemigation system. Marksman gives growers the ability to remotely monitor and control crop inputs that are applied during the irrigation cycle. The next year, Sentinel ISOBUS Liquid Row Monitoring was released, laying the foundation for Sentinel to become a core product with broad capabilities. In 2020, Sentinel Rate Control was introduced, and Sentinel Row Control enjoyed a highly successful limited release in 2021.
As of December 2022, SurePoint Ag Systems employs more than 73 full-time employees and numerous seasonal workers. Our sister company, SurePoint Electronics, also employees an additional 29 full time employees. We have shipped SurePoint Ag products all across the United States and Canada, as well as internationally. SurePoint is a company that practices open-book management. We have learned the Great Game of Business from the SRC companies in Springfield, MO. This philosophy has been instrumental to our growth as a company and to the growth of each individual in the company.
