The Prairie Automation Ltd. shop is located in rural Kasota of Minnesota. Located South West from the Minneapolis/St. Paul Metro area, it is just a 1 hour scenic drive from the Minneapolis Airport.

We are small enough to work directly with the customer from concept to installation, yet large enough to handle the designing, machining, assembly, testing, installation and support to our customers. We can also work with you to modify your existing equipment to increase the throughput, automate repetitive tasks or even alter its product line that it produces.

We have designed equipment for a variety of industries and have dealt with companies both large and small.
