With two employees and a 1,200 square foot facility, Estes Design and Manufacturing was incorporated on November 1, 1976.

While a chief engineer for Hesston Corporation, Larry Estes learned of their impending sale to The Toro Company, so he left the organization to begin his own design and manufacturing company. The first products made were service parts for the Hesston/Toro line.

Originally, Estes Design and Manufacturing was intended to be a product design and development firm with some manufacturing capabilities. However, demand from Toro and other companies for top-quality manufactured products increased, and Estes responded by adding capacity with a move to a new facility in the fall of 1977.
