The year was 1973 and Emil Peters, a Linn, Kansas farmer who also raised livestock, was looking for a faster way to put up a strong fence. Emil had always had an inventive mind and after a little while he developed a continuous connection for fence that was better than anything else available and was eventually granted a patent. Over the years with help from his wife, sons, and daughter, Emil built his newly formed company, Linn Post & Pipe Supply, into an industry leader. Emil didn't stop at his patented continuous fencing either, he began building other livestock handling equipment with the same idea that it needed to be stronger and work better than what was already being used.
In 1979 the Nebraska division of Linn Post & Pipe Supply opened for business. Emil Peters had wanted to expand his growing business to accommodate farmers and ranchers in the northern United States and Creighton, NE became the home of a complete sales and manufacturing facility.
Manufacturing of the fencing and other livestock handling equipment started in a single building with three employees in 1979. It’s been over 35 years and the Creighton plant manufactures and distributes all the products that the original facility in Kansas does. Many expansions have been made over the years that have made the facility not only a manufacturing center but also a distribution center for all Linn Post & Pipe Supply products. Demand for the equipment has steadily increased and continues to grow each year.
