Artex has been a leader in agricultural supply for over forty years. Purchased by John de Jonge in 1995, it evolved away from silage and manure equipment to focused in on cattle handling equipment, ventilation and cow cooling.
Artex Barn Solutions rose to new heights over the next ten years, and positioned itself for the global market by opening its first North-American style manufacturing plant in China in 2007. Artex hosts regular trips to China for both customers and dealers to tour their facilities, showcasing their manufacturing capabilities and commitment to quality.
This global expansion has led Artex to a vast and rapid growth. With a network of dealers around the world and projects in more than 40 countries worldwide, Artex takes pride in the level of excellence and commitment it continues to bring to the dairy industry.
The more a cow lays down, the more milk she produces.
The more milk she produces, the more money farmers make.
Our team, along with business and university partners, began the study of cow comfort in pasture environments. This study was designed to help us better understand animal stress and what constitutes ‘natural behaviours’.
Our goal has been to create a barn environment that is as close to the pasture as possible to increase productivity and management efficiency, but also to promote animal health and well being.
Our belief is that it is crucial to a farm’s success to reduce animal stress. This means designing a barn that simulates the pasture environment and promotes natural behaviours like lying down.
Our success is built on a foundation of customer service. As a company, we believe our success is found in the success of the farmers who use our products every day to enhance their business.
Artex works with a number of amazing organizations and companies. We thrive on aligning with like-minded companies and working together to improve the quality of service we offer our customers and learning from each other.
As pioneers in cow comfort, we are looking for innovators and straight shooters to join our rapidly-growing team. We won’t beat around the bush. Our team works hard in a fast-paced environment that interacts with people across the globe.
