Aus­tralian farm­ers em­brace the re­li­a­bil­ity and ef­fi­ciency of Grain Logic’s Merid­ian and Con­vey-All grain han­dling equip­ment

For 20 years, Aus­tralian fam­ily-owned com­pany Grain

Logic has been serv­ing the needs of Aus­tralian farm­ers by pro­vid­ing world-class grain-han­dling equip­ment.

Founded by Phil and Jo Haeusler, Grain Logic was built on a long fam­ily his­tory in agri­cul­tural ma­chin­ery trad­ing. Born and bred in the Mallee, Vic­to­ria, Phil worked for many years in the farm ma­chin­ery busi­ness, build­ing an ex­ten­sive knowl­edge and net­work, while learn­ing the im­por­tance of be­ing adapt­able to changes in the in­dus­try.

The first prod­uct im­ported by Grain Logic was the Saukun­diak grain auger, a prod­uct de­vel­oped by a fam­ily-owned busi­ness in the heart of Canada’s grain-grow­ing prov­ince of Saskatchewan. A re­la­tion­ship be­tween the Sakun­diak and Grain Logic team was formed, and the grain auger tech­nol­ogy was de­vel­oped with this broader cus­tomer base in mind.

Fol­low­ing a num­ber of merg­ers and ac­qui­si­tions, the Sakun­diak grain auger was ac­quired and re­branded Merid­ian. Merid­ian is a world leader in devel­op­ing stor­age and han­dling so­lu­tions; with 65 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence the com­pany has ex­panded to six man­u­fac­tur­ing lo­ca­tions across North Amer­ica and Canada. Merid­ian main­tains an un­wa­ver­ing com­mit­ment to qual­ity and works closely with the team at Grain Logic to en­sure the prod­uct line ac­com­mo­dates the needs of Aus­tralian farm­ers.

Such is the com­pany’s com­mit­ment to the Aus­tralian mar­ket, ear­lier this year Merid­ian’s di­rec­tor of in­ter­na­tional sales joined Phil Haeusler to per­son­ally meet with farm­ers and distrib­u­tors across Queens­land, NSW, Vic­to­ria and Western Australia to un­der­stand the di­ver­sity and on-farm chal­lenges across the coun­try.

With ac­cess to Merid­ian’s stor­age and han­dling equip­ment, Grain Logic has en­joyed rapid ex­pan­sion and has es­tab­lished an ex­ten­sive dealer net­work across Australia. Key to this ex­pan­sion strat­egy is the com­mit­ment to its com­pany val­ues of cus­tomer ser­vice, pro­vid­ing qual­ity prod­ucts and en­sur­ing flex­i­bil­ity in re­spond­ing to trends in the in­dus­try. In short, Grain Logic strives to de­liver Aus­tralian farm­ers qual­ity and in­no­va­tion at a com­pet­i­tive price, whilst en­sur­ing re­li­a­bil­ity of sup­ply and af­ter­sales ser­vice.

Prod­ucts avail­able from Grain Logic in­clude the Merid­ian grain augers, Con­vey-All belt con­vey­ors, Merid­ian si­los, stor­age bins and sheds. The auger prod­uct range in­cludes con­ven­tional augers through to swing-away augers.

Phil Haeusler says: “Farm­ers love th­ese augers as they are safe, sta­ble, easy to main­tain and ex­tremely ef­fi­cient.” The grain silo range in­cludes a ver­ti­cal nat­u­ral grain dry­ing aer­a­tion sys­tem, along with a hor­i­zon­tal aer­a­tion sys­tem.

Grain stor­age rings are also avail­able to pro­vide a low-cost al­ter­na­tive and are ideal for tem­po­rary so­lu­tion to stor­ing ex­cess grain. The grain sheds of­fer a bulk stor­age so­lu­tion with unique de­sign fea­tures that en­sure cool, dry stor­age con­di­tions.

The in­tro­duc­tion of Con­vey-All to the prod­uct line, also re­cently ac­quired by Merid­ian, has sig­nif­i­cantly ex­panded the ver­sa­til­ity of the grain-han­dling range. Con­vey-All In­dus­tries bring 30 years of re­search and de­vel­op­ment, and pro­vide in­fi­nite flex­i­bil­ity to com­mod­ity han­dling. The range in­cludes self-pro­pelled transload­ing con­vey­ors, high-ca­pac­ity tube con­vey­ors and trans­fer con­vey­ors along with com­mer­cial seed ten­ders.

Grain Logic has also tar­geted other Cana­dian farm equip­ment sup­pli­ers, in­clud­ing Ag Shield land rollers, Re­con hay con­di­tion­ers and com­ple­men­tary ac­ces­sories such as stor­age level sen­sors and grain mois­ture mon­i­tors.

Phil Haeusler says he takes “great sat­is­fac­tion in as­sist­ing his dealer net­work to pro­vide a com­plete stor­age and han­dling so­lu­tion for all cus­tomers. No cus­tomer is too big or too small for our prod­ucts. We can pro­vide a com­pet­i­tive and qual­ity han­dling so­lu­tion for all scale farm­ers and a range of com­modi­ties.”
