"To be the leading manufacturer of high quality grain storage systems
domestically and internationally"
Behlen Grain Systems, a business unit of Behlen Mfg. Co., is a leading international manufacturer of grain storage systems and is currently in more than 70 countries worldwide!
Behlen was the first to introduce a 1.5-million-bushel (42,000-tonne) grain silo with a clear span roof and is a world leader in the storage of feed and cereal grains, edible beans, oilseeds and other bulk commodities.
During the 1940’s Behlen designed and built corn cribs which included galvanized steel rods after assembly welding which produced a superior product.
For many years, Behlen cribs became the primary form of corn storage in the United States.
In 2008, Behlen became the first company in the industry to design a one-million bushel corrugated steel bin with a clear span roof.
