About Top Air Manufacturing
Top Air Manufacturing, Inc. (Top Air or the Company) was incorporated under the laws of the State of Iowa in 1981. Top Air is engaged in the business of manufacturing several products used primarily in agricultural operations, including several types of agricultural sprayers, liquid manure handling equipment, grain carts, grain wagons and wagon running gears, weigh wagons, milking parlors, seed conveyors, feeding and forage equipment and a line of attachments and replacement parts for all of the products that the Company manufactures. The Company currently manufactures its products in two facilities, one in Cedar Falls, Iowa and the other in Jefferson, Iowa.
In 2000, the Company acquired the Great Bend Manufacturing running gear line (the Great Bend Running Gear) from Allied Products Corporation. The assets acquired consisted primarily of inventory, but also included production fixtures and engineering documentation. In 1999, the Company acquired Parker Industries, (Parker Industries).
Principal Products and Markets
Sprayers. The Company currently manufactures several types of agricultural sprayers including skid mount, two-wheel models, saddle tank models, home lawn models, trailer sprayers, tandem wheel sprayers, T-Tank sprayers, Master Link sprayers, and models which can be mounted in the bed of a pickup truck. The sprayers are sold in sizes ranging in capacity from 14 to 1,100 gallons. The Company also offers various accessories for the sprayers including several models of folding and self-leveling booms in various lengths and designs.
The sprayers are used primarily for farming activities. They can be pulled directly by a tractor or they can be hooked to a disc so that their combined functions allow the farmer to eliminate one trip over the ground. The sprayers are used for spraying jobs of all types, including the spraying of chemicals, fertilizers, insecticides and weed killers. They are used by farmers and commercial sprayers primarily for row crops, but can also be used on other crops, golf courses, cemeteries, etc. The wheels may be adjusted to compensate for difficult row crop widths. Trees and shrubs may be sprayed by a hand gun attachment to the sprayers.
Manure Handling Equipment. This product group consists of a line of tanks ranging in size from 2,600 gallons to 6,000 gallons, which are either trailer mounted or truck mounted and are used to transport animal manure from a storage pit or a storage lagoon to a farm field. The manure is then spread on top of the ground or injected several inches under the surface as a fertilizer. In addition to the tanks, this product group includes several types of pumps to agitate the storage pit or storage lagoon and subsequently load the tank.
Grain Carts, Grain Wagons and Wagon Running Gears. The Company manufactures a wide variety of agricultural grain handling equipment, including side and center unloading (gravity) wagons, ranging in size from 190 to 720 bushel capacity, and grain carts equipped with integral, folding augers, which range in size from 400 to 1,000 bushel capacity. The grain wagons consist of two basic units, the grain box and the wagon running gear, which can be sold together or separately. Grain carts are most commonly sold as complete units with large floatation tires.
Grain carts are used in the farm fields during the harvest season to transport grain from the combine to nearby roads where the grain is transferred from the cart to trucks or grain wagons for transport to storage facilities. Carts are favored for use in the field because they help speed up the harvest process and can be pulled across wet fields in which trucks often get stuck. Grain wagons can also be used during spring planting as seed tenders for grain drills and planters.
Weigh Wagons. Calibrated weigh wagons are used in the seed industry to measure grain weight at various estimated grain moisture levels. Weigh wagons are invaluable harvest tools that provide growers with a number of benefits when checking yields during fall harvest. Weigh wagons help growers confirm seed purchase decisions. Growers use weigh wagons to weigh and measure produ

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
