Blue Ox and Automatic designs and manufactures innovative agricultural, recreational, commercial, and defense towing products. Founded in 1925, Automatic Manufacturing Co. has been leading the way in agricultural manufacturing for over 90 years. Evolving from the first producer of dependable and affordable cattle oilers in 1925 to a world-class manufacturer providing product solutions in the feeding of livestock, tractor accessories, and trailer towing equipment. Entering into the recreational towing business in the early 1980s, Automatic Equipment began building the KarTote trailer for recreational and commercial towing. With the acquisition of Blue Ox® in 1991 and Duncan Towing in 1994, the company began its journey in building a solid reputation as the premier manufacturer in the aftermarket towing industry, expanding our product offerings from tow bars to weight-distribution and gooseneck hitches, to carriers for pickups and motorhomes.
As a family company, we believe that loyal customers are created through building superior products and delivering outstanding customer service.
