Taylor Products History

Founder Murland "Mike" Taylor started Taylor Seed Company in Parsons, Kansas, in the 1960's. However, he soon began designing mechanical beam scale baggers. Taylor Products extensive line of bagging equipment is the result of his ability to translate customer thoughts and ideas into practical, economical and durable machine designs. Providing packaging equipment for the industry soon overtook the seed cleaning business and Taylor Products was born. The line of patented equipment has expanded to over 25 different models for valve bags, open mouth, and bulk bags.

Although product development started in the agricultural market, industrial markets soon adopted Taylor Products' equipment designs. Today, Taylor Products brand of Magnum Systems provides standard designs and custom equipment for every sector of the commercial marketplace. Our willingness to listen to our customers' ideas and to manufacture products that meet their specific needs has made the Taylor Products brand an industry leader in both the agricultural and industrial sectors.
