About Us

Quick History

Sudenga Industries’ reputation for service, innovation and durability has humble roots. Founded in 1888 by a German immigrant, Folkert Sudenga, we originally opened our doors as George, Iowa’s first blacksmith shop. Throughout the generations, Sudenga turned from blacksmithing to manufacturing, which was born from local farmers’ desires for “labor saving devices.”

Today, Sudenga Industries engineers and builds products that embody the durability of our blacksmithing roots and demonstrate the innovation that comes from decades of experience in manufacturing industry-leading agricultural equipment. We also provide Dur-A-Lift mounted aerial lifts and three- and four-wheel electric scooters through our Ranger All Season Corporation. Those two product lines, combined with Sudenga Industries, all fall under the Diversified Technologies, Inc. corporate umbrella.
