Beaver Machine Inc. History


Beaver Machine was started by Phil and Ann Sadowski in 1946 in Beaver, Wisconsin as a general machine and repair shop. Phil did the fixing and Ann did the bookkeeping.

Phil acquired the Case farm equipment franchise in 1949.
In 1966, their son, Richard (Dick) became involved in the business and brought in the New Holland franchise in 1968.

In 1971, Beaver Machine purchased 20 acres 7 miles south of Beaver in Coleman and built a new, larger facility.

In 1985 Case and International Harvester became one. That same year, Beaver Machine added the Ford tractor line to their arsenal.

In 1986, New Holland acquired Ford and in 1999 merged with Case IH becoming what we now know as CNH.

Throughout these years Dick and his wife, Sue built a family along with the business. All four of their children currently work at Beaver Machine. Dick, Jr., known as J.R. came back after college in 1991. Keith followed in 1997, Adam in 2003 and finally Kristie in 2014.

The Beaver Machine work family has taken the challenges of the growing and changing business head on and continues to provide top tier care to its customers. With the support of a caring community, Beaver Machine, Inc. hopes to be here for three more generations serving the wonderful people who keep us fed, fueled and fortunate.
