Innovative products. Cutting-edge equipment. Raw materials. High-powered, smooth-running production facilities and highly skilled workers are what enable Kinze to build some of the best planters and grain carts in the world.


As a vertically integrated manufacturer, Kinze brings in raw steel, fabricates it, paints it and assembles the final product right here in Williamsburg. We even build our own cylinders to ensure they meet the highest quality standards.


Kinze ownership reinvests in production facilities (over one million square feet of space under roof) and cutting-edge technologies that meet the highest performance and safety standards. As part of the production team, you will work one of two operating shifts, playing an integral role in welding, fabrication, assembly or painting.
