“Wayne and Wyn Clews started this family business in 1993 after a lifetime of grain farming and ranching. With 40 permit books, Wayne’s years of experience and knowledge contribute significantly to the grain storage and drying industry.”
A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY
A Canadian Company, Clews Management, Ltd. was created by Wayne and Wyn Clews in 1993 after a lifetime of grain farming and experience in managing stored grain “down on the farm”.
In 1997, son Kevin and his wife Jacky joined the operation forming Clews Storage Management/K, Ltd. Kevin joined as President and Operations Manager and Jacky joined to manage the warehouse and oversee shipping.
Most recently, our interest in matters respecting safe storage of grains has driven our passions towards wireless temperature and moisture monitoring with readings available on any smart device that has an internet connection – worldwide!
Built on core family values and real family farming character, the Clews Management, Ltd. family business continues to grow deep roots in the farming community!
Kevin & Jacky took over the Family Business in 1997. Since then many changes and expansions have taken place. Both Kevin and Jacky are active with all aspects of the operation. They run an install crew, travelling throughout Western Canada working side by side most days. Jacky prepares all the meals for the crews, to ensure all are well fed while away. They love the opportunity to go to the farm and commercial sites and ensure that Producers Systems and Equipment is performing to top standards.
