Art's Way Manufacturing

Iowa farmer Arthur Luscombe founded Art’s Way Manufacturing in 1956, to produce and sell a PTO powered grinder mixer he developed on his farm near Dolliver, Iowa. His first product was a great success that marked the beginning of his amazing career as an inventor and entrepreneur. In 1959, Luscombe moved the company from his original plant in downtown Armstrong to its present location, and the grinder mixer line was expanded to include OEM work for companies such as Massey Ferguson, Owatonna and Case or as it was known then, International Harvester. Today, Art’s Way has approximately 200 employees and operates its 4 business units in 7 facilities. Arthur Luscombe’s dedication to innovation, quality and durability remains the central focus of our products and business practices. We take pride in the quality of our grinder mixers, sugar beet harvesters, graders, plows and other farm machinery, and continue to expand our product lines to meet the needs of our customers.
