Company History

Copyright © Floyd Gate Company

Wayne, Bryan, & Scott


In 1977 Wayne Floyd loaded up a 1947 model Peterbilt with farm gates, and headed west.  The first semi-load of farm gates ever shipped from Liberty, Ky was on the road! 









Wayne Floyd built what is now known as "Floyd Gate Company", from the ground up.  Through the years, he evolved the manufacturing process and the product line to meet customer needs.  Always looking out for those that use the products on farms across the America.  Customer service and satisfaction is the foundation "Floyd Gate Company" is founded on.


Wayne's two sons Bryan and Scott learned the business while working beside their dad when they were young boys.  As adults, both men followed their fathers lead and continued his mission of providing what we consider to be the best value in farm equipment for your hard earned money.


Orange was the first color used to paint farm gates being sold in Central Kentucky, we were the first to use it.  The vertical Z-Brace was first manufactured and used by Floyd Gate Company.  The same style Z-Brace is common practice in virtually every farm gate on the market today. 


Although we've had a lot of "firsts" - from the first semi-load of gates ever shipped, to the invention of today's Z-Brace, to making the color "orange" common practice in the gate industry, our greatest achievement is Customer Retention.  Repeat customers mean we're doing our job by providing high quality, competitive priced farm and agricultural products to America's hard working farmers and ranchers.  We pride ourselves on 98% customer retention over 35 years of service!


We'd love the opportunity to show you how a family owned and operated business can  provide you with top quality products at a fraction of the price.  We're not the largest manufacturer in town, but we are the best.  Money saving top of the line products from small town people that put your satisfaction first.  


You can't get where your going, unless you know where you've been!  That old 1947 Peterbilt is still used today, hauling product between our manufacturing plants.   Stop by anytime for a tour.  We'd love to have you!
