At CEEC Inc. we focus our knowledge and expertise as contractors towards the construction of new grain facilities, repair and maintenance of existing grain elevator facilities, and also offer a crane service.

We provide construction of grain storage such as steel bins, concrete, temporary or flat. We also maintain and repair facilities that have breakdowns or just need a bearing replaced.

Great relationships with our suppliers means we can provide the best equipment for our customers for grain handling systems, such as conveyors, grain legs, bulk weighing systems, grain dryers and more.

We have the ability to design and engineer your grain elevator, feed mill, and storage facilities with AutoCAD capabilities, creating and sharing drawings.

We use our own cranes at our job sites to reach the towers and other equipment that we install so we also provide a crane service to our other customers.

One of our biggest strengths is the ability to plan and coordinate not only our crews, but other contractors so as to aid in the orderly completion of a project. CEEC Inc. has always been willing to service what we sell and make sure that every project is completed to our customers’ satisfaction.

Chuck Ricketts, owner and CEO, has been in this business for 33 years. He became interested in the agricultural business when he was a small boy growing up on a farm in southern MN. He graduated from SMSU with a degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology.

After graduation, Chuck later partnered with a subcontractor he had hired while branch service manager for A.O. Smith Harvestore Co. and began a previous grain elevator repair and maintenance company which he co-owned until 1998. In May of 1998, CEEC Inc. began its operation.

We have built many grain facilities from the ground up and hundreds of grain expansions to existing facilities which include storage bins, steel or temporary, and installing equipment from our many suppliers.

We have multiple millwright crews and crane operators/riggers. Our services span into South Dakota and Iowa, but the majority of our work is here in Minnesota.

CEEC Inc. has a notable safety record and embraces OSHA standards and consultations for our projects.
