In the mid 1940’s Robert Moore founded Moore equipment, a small machine and fabrication shop based out of Moore’s garage. A decade later, Moore integrated the Heli-Arc welding process into bowl fabrication and perfected the vibratory feeder bowl from the design originally patented by Mario Sgriccia in the 1950’s, to the common design still in use today.
During the 1950’s Moore Equipment became Moorfeed Corporation, and over the decades grew to become the premier manufacturer of parts feeding and handling equipment. In the 1960’s Moorfeed expanded its operations to California creating Moorfeed West.
In 1975 Robert Moore passed away, leaving the company under new ownership. The 1980’s and 1990’s saw continual growth with the addition of Moorfeed South in Florida. Even in the face of new industry competition, Moorfeed continued to grow and became the largest feeder bowl company in the world, employing over 140 people.
Starting in the early 2000’s the company fell under hard times and began to lose much of its prominence as the premier vibratory feeder company, with ownership changing hands again in 2003. By the 2010’s the company was struggling, and new management and ownership was needed.
In 2010, Executive Management Services, Inc., a national facility management and janitorial company, expanded their interests and formed Executive Automation Systems. This would become the Manufacturing Branch for the company and in September 2011, Moorfeed Corporation was purchased by Executive Automation Systems. In 2018 EAS further expanded its vibratory feeder footprint with the acquisition of Feeder Dynamics, Inc. out of Clearwater, FL.
Today, Moorfeed Corp. has re-established itself as a leader in the parts feeding and handling market. With a long term mindset on sustainable growth and intelligent integration, Moorfeed is setting a unyielding foundation for the future both domestically and abroad.
