CMC Industrial Electronics was founded in 1997 with the mission to protect people, property, and operations through the designing, manufacturing, and marketing of hazard monitoring systems to the grain, feed, and milling industries.  Starting with the end user in mind, CMC develops systems built around advanced technology that can be utilized easily and cost effectively. These values protect human life and property while also improving process efficiency and safety.

Doug Forst, the founder of CMC, has over 40 years of experience in bulk materials handling with a specialty in grain and feed industries. Doug had a strong desire to advance the state of monitoring technologies used in these industries, so he founded CMC to fulfill his mission. 

In January 2018, CMC was acquired by AGI, a leading manufacturer of seed, fertilizer, grain, feed and food handling, blending, storage and conditioning equipment. Our brands are amongst the most recognized in global agriculture in both Commercial and Farm sectors.  We have manufacturing facilities in Canada, the United States, Brazil, South Africa and Italy, and distribute our products globally.  Our product catalog includes augers, belt conveyors, grain storage bins, grain handling accessories, grain aeration equipment, grain drying systems, as well as feed, food and fertilizer handling and storage systems. 

In addition to CMC, AGI’s family of brands in the Commercial sector includes Hi Roller, Union Iron, TRAMCO, AIRLANCO, Westeel, PTM, FRAME, VIS, NuVision, MMS, Yargus, MFS, and Sentinel.
