Ray Hays


Ray Hays has spent the past 50 years working in the Agriculture Industry. In 1970 he began his own business manufacturing fertilizer-hauling equipment. The heart and success of his business is family, friendship, relationship and generosity. He goes above and beyond and always gives with no expectations. He believes we can never out give God and that people are more important than any other thing. What he began as one man’s dream to have his own business has turned into a family run business that supports 50 families. He is loved and cherished by his family, friends and employees. Ray and Kay had four children. Two of the four, Donna and Ronald, followed his footsteps in the family business and the other two, Lynn and Shari, are in education. When Kay passed away he re-married and did his version of “retirement”, which means he comes to work every day and with the help of his wife, Janice, travels nationwide, works all trade shows, visits customer after customer. He sincerely enjoys expressing appreciation to his customers and friends, giving out kindness, a fun story, handshakes and pecan pies.
