Twinkle Co was started in 1983, with an office located in a garage in West Liberty, Iowa. Twinkle Co founder Willard Salemink started out with the goal of bringing a wide range of innovation to the sand and gravel dredge mining industry. Previous experience led Salemink to start a company that was innovative in name, business model and product line.
Instruments and control systems have been a large part of the Twinkle Co success story. From the beginning we knew that instruments and controls are vital to successful dredging. We have the in-house capability to develop, design, build and test our instrument and control products. This allows us to seamlessly combine our knowledge of dredging and control technology.
A growing list of satisfied customers testifies to our success and growing reputation as the leading innovator and source for complete dredges, components, instruments, controls, automation systems and practical information. Looking back over the last 21 years we are proud of what we have accomplished and excited about what is yet to come. We have left the garage office behind, but we remain true to the goals of the original business model. As we enter the 21st century we will continue to use our knowledge and imagination to bring technology and innovation to the sand and gravel dredge mining industry. We look forward to working with customers, both old and new, to help them increase productivity.
