Our History

Nova-Tech was established in 1992 as a 2-person company in Willmar, Minnesota. What began as one person’s passion to leverage emerging technology to benefit agriculture is now a global reality. After rapid growth over the last 29 years, we now hold several US patents and employ nearly 300 professionals, including global team members from 12 different countries. Our equipment can be found in over 500 hatcheries in more than 65 countries and 6 continents around the world. Learn more about our innovations.


Our Future

At Nova-Tech, innovation is more than word; it is the core of our business. We understand that the need to feed an expanding global population with static or decreased resources will require that agricultural practices become more efficient, more effective and more enterprising than ever before. Our research and development team is committed to discovering novel applications of technology to assist with that need. We anticipate continued growth in all areas of our business and encourage inventive, innovative people to consider joining our engineering, machining, technical and customer support teams.

Our Location

In 2005, Nova-Tech partnered with Life-Science Innovations to buy a 37-building, 110-acre historic hospital facility in Willmar from the State of Minnesota. Since that time, we have developed the resulting MinnWest Technology Campus into the largest privately owned technology park in the country.

The beautiful MinnWest Technology Campus provides bioscience, agribusiness, technology and bioenergy companies with resources, amenities and a collaborative business culture.

Nova-Tech houses every aspect of its business on the MinnWest Technology Campus, including a manufacturing facility located just steps away from our engineering and drafting teams. Walking from building to building, you can observe our whole process, from concept to final product.
