Our history ...

Kelley Engineering was started in 1972 by Walt Kelley in Brookston, Indiana. Brookston is located about 10 miles north of Lafayette, Indiana at the intersection of SR 18 and SR 43. In 2000, Walt and Kevin (Walt's son) partnered to form Kelley Engineering, LLC.

Walt Kelley, the founder, is a graduate of Purdue University in Agricultural Engineering. He started Kelley Engineering in 1971 and the first product line he represented was Chem-Farm® tanks, sprayers, and incorporation kits.

Harry Javens, our Parts Manager, has been with us for over 30 years. Harry is an integral part of our operation; he manages most of the day-to-day operations including service calls, spray and NH3 system builds, pump repairs, billing, and parts ordering.

Kevin Kelley, also a graduate of Purdue University in Agricultural Engineering, entered the business in 1999 after working for 3 years at two agricultural-related companies. He is responsible overseeing the precision ag component of the business and developing the direction of the business.

Eric Post is our Precision Ag Technician. He is available for on-site installs and service at any time. Eric's hands-on knowledge of using this equipment on our farm gives him an additional insight that benefits our customers.

Jeff Altman has experience in the seed industry, the equipment industry, and has farming in his blood. He helps with sales and installs, but he also has the practical knowledge of using what we sell on our farm.

Ethan, Miles, and Stan help support the rest of us when we need it.

We look forward to working with you!
