Excel Industries is a leading manufacturer of turf care products. Excel Industries produces the Hustler Turf Equipment and BigDog Mower Company product lines in their single production facility in Hesston, Kansas. As the producers of the first zero-turn mower in 1964, Excel Industries has a long history of turf equipment experience. In late 2012 Excel Industries entered into the mass market arena with the introduction of the Raptor product line.
This new product line has led to immense growth for Excel and a need to change the layout of the factory. With this growth and change comes a need for greater attention to safety and efficiency. These photos are of new storage locations (not fully stocked yet) that will house the parts for the highest volume products. The rack backing material in these photos was purchased from SJF’s online store to protect work areas, walkways and mechanical components from falling parts.
