Salford Group is a global leader in the manufacturing of tillage, seeding, and fertilizer application equipment. They will soon be expanding these product lines through the acquisition of AerWay, manufactured by SAF-HOLLAND Canada Ltd.
“We are very pleased to bring AerWay products under the Salford tillage umbrella,” said Geof Gray, Chief Executive Officer of Salford Group. “The acquisition of AerWay expands our niche tillage product lineup to offer more vertical tillage and pastureland management tools that appeal to our livestock and mixed farming customers.”
“Both companies focus on innovative designs to meet customer needs, create tools with multi-use capabilities and emphasize soil productivity and management, with vertical tillage/minimal disturbance tools and topdressing or cover cropping being an important part of that,” he said.
Gray also noted that Salford and AerWay have worked well together in the past as AerWay tools already use Salford harrow packages and AerWay is capable of carrying Salford Valmar attachments. “Our plan is to continue collaborating for quality engineering in the future.”
Today AerWay’s ability to solve tillage and pasture needs continue and are broadly recognized. The product distinguishes itself as a well-engineered tool and users and proponents alike started referring to the tillage and aeration results as “Aerwaying” the ground. In many circles the AerWay became known as the only tool that solved their compaction, aeration and water incorporation problems.
AerWay offers many innovative products, including the CCT (Close Couple Tandem, ATS (Aerations Top-dress Seeder) and the Titan CTS (Complete Tillage System. They also have a line of horticulture equipment designed for orchards and vineyards, as well as turf equipment.
