Hold’em Fence Company plans to move from its current location north of Alta Vista to the Morris County Industrial Park in Council Grove in order to better manufacture and serve the company’s growing list of clients.
The Hold’em Fence Company manufactures turnkey-constructed cattle feedlots and other large-animal holding pens, as well as its new line of permanent and mobile livestock handling equipment.
Hold’em Fence employee Yachal Benedick said that the company plans to have a 15,000 square foot manufacturing and headquarters constructed as soon as possible on the newly-acquired 13-acre site in the industrial park.
This new structure will allow consolidation of the manufacturing of livestock penning and handling equipment as well as house the company’s headquarters and marketing facilities.
Benedick said that future plans call for eventually doubling the size of that building and increasing the number of employees. Just 15 years ago, Yachal Benedick and his friends were laboring as a barbed-wire and steel-post, pasture-fencing operation.
Today, the Hold’em Fence Company employs 10 full-time workers, manufactures various steel panels and accouterments that go into the construction of large cattle feed yards and other livestock confinement facilities. The company also manufactures and markets a line of permanent and portable livestock-handling equipment. Hold’em Fence serves clients in much of the central and western portion of the United States.
