Manufacturing Quality Beekeeping Supplies in the USA Since 1863
Our stainless-steel Dadant Smokers and Extractors are made in the USA, where we keep a close eye on production and quality control.
In our 156th year, we’ve launched a newly-remodeled line of stainless-steel extractors. Our honey extractors are made in America at our stainless steel plant in Dallas City, IL, a short trip up the road from our corporate office. The updated line features new legs on each unit and redesigned inner reels, helping make your honey extracting a breeze.
The best beeswax foundation in the industry — made in the same factory for 156 years.
Dadant 100% beeswax foundation has been produced at our corporate office location in Hamilton, IL, since our founding in 1863.
Our foundation is milled to three distinct cell sizes: 5.4 or Standard Cell Size, 5.1 or Transitional Size, and 4.9 or Small Cell. We offer wired, medium brood, cut comb and thin surplus styles of foundation to meet the varying needs of our customers.
Looking for a special size? We have the ability to run custom sizes of foundation for our customers!
Compared to cheaper imports, Dadant woodenware is clearly a higher-quality product. Our bee boxes are known to outlast the competition’s, year after year.
Dadant’s American-made woodenware products are produced in Polson, MT, at our woodenware manufacturing facility. Each board is carefully hand chosen and tested before cutting to prevent warping. The Ponderosa Pine used in building our woodenware products is known for its strength and durability, even in the harshest elements.
From a single hive to a full truck load of our American-made woodenware, we provide beekeepers with exactly what they need. Find a branch near you!
“It pays to furnish good goods.”
At Dadant, we believe it pays to manufacture our goods in the US with high-quality parts and old-world craftsmanship. For 156 years, Dadant brand products have stood the test of time and the scrutiny of discerning beekeepers. We look forwarding to serving the beekeeping industry in 2019 and beyond!
