BOONE, IOWA, U.S. — Rolfes@Boone is celebrating its 20th anniversary in business this year.
Boone Cable Works and Electronics, Inc., Boone, Iowa, U.S., started operations on April 1, 1994. In 2005, Boone Cable Works purchased The Rolfes Co. of Danville, Iowa, U.S., and changed its name to Rolfes@Boone.
The company is employee-owned and is a full-line manufacturer of grain temperature detection and hazard detection equipment. All design, engineering, manufacturing and sales functions are done in-house.
“The main reason for our success is that we stick with proven techniques that have worked for 100 years,” said Kevin Miles, president. “We also are unique in the fact that we have service and installation crews for all of our product lines.”
Miles said the company’s fans are AMCA rated, and its cables don’t need replacement as frequently. Dust systems are designed to a customer’s individual needs. The company’s cable and wire extrusion personnel are some of the most experienced in the industry, and have manufactured more than 160 million feet of thermocouple cable and leadwire.
Rolfes@Boone has shipped equipment throughout the U.S. and to more than 70 countries.
“Our objective as a company is to provide top quality products at a competitive price, and back them up with timely courteous service to ensure total customer satisfaction,” Miles said. “We stick with what works and make it work better!”
