Newton Crouch Inc Celebrates 81 Years

Newton Crouch Inc (NCI), founded by Will Newton Crouch Sr, opened its doors in Griffin, Georgia in 1940 as a cotton gin and fertilizer warehouse.  Newton Sr soon designed an equipment line to help growers spread fertilizer accurately. His equipment design started Newton Crouch Inc down the path of innovation that has led NCI to become the premiere manufacturer of applicators. 

Today, Newton Crouch Inc is owned and operated as a family business by Steve Crouch, son of Newton Sr. With his leadership and agricultural engineering degree, Steve brought Newton Crouch Spreaders into the modern era.  NCI Griffin remains the corporate hub while also being the primary location of equipment manufacturing.  NCI Albany is located in the heart of Georgia’s Ag Industry and is a vital tool for growers needing parts, service, and tanks.  NCI Sebring manufactures customized equipment for the Florida market along with tanks, service, and parts.  NCI has grown in its eighty years to become a dominant force in the agriculture market.

Newton Crouch Inc looks forward to growing its manufacturing footprint in Griffin in the upcoming years.  To learn more about Newton Crouch Inc’s history and employment opportunities, visit
