Your integrated source for bulk material automation.

Old School Craftsmanship Meets Contemporary Automation and Processes

Magnum Systems, Inc. is one of North America’s leading designers and manufacturers of material handling and packaging systems for dry bulk materials. We earned that spot with our collective engineering knowledge and application experience. We’re not all that flashy, but customers who process bulk materials such as grain, seeds, cereals, sugar, flour, plastic pellets, plastic powder, sand, cement, fly ash, fertilizers, and granulate chemicals value our ability to solve their bulk material handling challenges.

Our Mission

Design, manufacture, and integrate automated material handling systems.

Our Vision

To be the recognized industry leader in systems integration, manufacturing, and automation.

Forging Ahead With Better Technology

Since 2001, Magnum Systems has moved a steady stream of new products and technologies to market, and we’ve kept the U.S. Patent Office busy.

Magnum holds numerous patents for our pneumatic conveying systems and introduced the Eco Phase™ material handling solution, an innovative system that delivers very high levels of throughput with low energy consumption. Magnum’s packaging systems are also recognized for their technical excellence. By partnering with leading providers of industrial robotics and electronics, Magnum ensures ongoing and efficient access to best-of-breed technology.

There’s Value in Longevity

Our customers depend on us to keep their lines moving, efficiently and without fail from rail or truck to pallet. We’ve been doing it for a very long time. We’ll keep doing it for as long as our customers need us. After all, our systems are designed to last, fabricated in the U.S. with American quality and ingenuity. There is no better value than a system you can rely on day in and day out to keep your line moving.

Trusted Brand Names Under Magnum Systems

The Smoot line of pneumatic conveying systems and the Taylor line of dry bulk packaging equipment strengthen the Magnum brand.

With nearly a century of experience in application knowledge, material handling, pneumatic conveying, and packaging, we understand you want a process system with a strong return on investment. Selling you solutions that don’t meet your need for efficiencies won’t cut it. Instead, we customize a solution for all your material handling needs in diverse end markets like food, agriculture, chemical, industrial minerals and plastics, just as we have for more than 10,000 other customers.

Our History

Wipe that dust off the label and you may just find a Taylor Products or Smoot label on that air packer, palletizer or pressure blower. Since 1960, we’ve kept your line and process moving efficiently, and without much fanfare. After all, your best day is when you leave the plant/facility on time, not a care in the world. And, our best day is when your machines work so well you don’t think about us.

Taylor Products’ History in Packaging

Founder Murland “Mike” Taylor started Taylor Seed Company in Parsons, Kansas in the 1960s. However, he soon began designing mechanical beam scale baggers. Taylor Products’ extensive line of patented equipment for valve bags, open mouth and bulk bags is his legacy of translating customer thoughts and ideas into practical, economical and durable machine designs.

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. Continuing Mike’s legacy, we listen to your ideas and manufacture products that meet your specific needs rather than you changing your line to meet our products.
