Wayne and his wife, Wyn, come from the farming town of Pangman, SK. Wayne’s history includes grain farming, as well as the distinction of being one of the first people to import exotic cattle breeds to Saskatchewan from Europe in the 1970’s. He ran a purebred Charolais ranch in the 60’s and 70’s, and worked with the American Breeder Services.
Wayne had interest and saw the value in the grain temperature monitoring business in the early 80’s when he was approached by OPI Systems. Due to Wayne’s keen sense of what was ‘next’ for the ag sector, and his extensive network of contacts with agri-producers across Western Canada, he was able to help grow his business.
From there, Wayne moved to Red Deer in 1994, and later he, along with Kevin & Jacky, created Clews Storage Management in 1997. Together, they have created Western Canada’s preferred supplier of grain temperature and moisture monitoring cables and wireless systems.
