AgTech Industries (ATI) was born when we could not find appropriate tech solutions to meet our production grower’s requirements. Aaron Magenheim, Founder & CEO, grew up immersed in the family agricultural irrigation company on the California Central Coast. He pioneered one of the first stand-alone AgTechnology integration companies, Signature AgTech, in 2013, with a mission to continuously bring new solutions to farmers while providing unprecedented support. Through his search for new technologies to help growers, Aaron has also become a leader in the AgTech movement, speaking as a panelist around the country and acting as advisor to incubators, investors, startups, manufacturers and local governments.
Aaron & his long-time associate, Jesse Martin, recognized that the technologies available to the agricultural industry were sadly outdated, inefficient, and inadequate. After extensive research, they decided to create ATI, a software and hardware development company, to build the right products that customers are looking for and stay ahead of customers’ needs for years to come.
ATI has assembled a world-class team to provide innovative and effective solutions. Many factors combine with our deep understanding of agricultural operations to give us the advantages others lack, including AgTech knowledge, decades of grower relationships, unsurpassed customer service, and effective distribution channels. Our advisor circle incorporates M and A, business management, investment, marketing, hardware prototyping, and more.
We are building a dealer network comprised of companies that local growers already know and trust, providing training and assistance on the ATI suite of solutions so growers can have one point of contact and the best “boots on the ground” support possible.
Whether growers would like to simply monitor and record water consumption or remotely control all irrigation sets from a soil, weather and map-based perspective, the AgTech Industries solution is exactly what they have been looking for. ATI offers the first growing operations platform that actually allows utilization by all of the growers’ employees. This allows them to continue being farmers, but with a better understanding of their entire operation than they ever thought was possible.
