A Leader in Material Handling For More Than 70 Years

The roots of the WALKING FLOOR® unloader began in 1950, when founder Keith Foster—the “Keith” in KEITH—developed material handling equipment for the agriculture industry. KEITH Manufacturing was launched in the early 1970s in Madras, Oregon when Foster set off to make the most reliable, durable and effective unloading system. The KEITH WALKING FLOOR® system soon set the industry standard in moving floor technology.

Today, the company is led by the second and third generation of the Foster family, which is committed to customer success.
