Our History

In 1947, Earl Nelson, his father Ted, Herb Jameson and Bob Dougherty founded Nelson-Jameson as a dairy equipment and supply business in Toluca, Illinois. Their goal was to serve as a comprehensive resource for dairy plants, but they soon discovered that their Illinois location wasn’t appropriate. So Ted and Herb studied dairy production maps and relocated the business to Marshfield, Wisconsin — the heart of dairy production. Shortly after, Jameson left Nelson-Jameson to pursue other business options, leaving the company in the hands of Earl and Ted Nelson.

Nelson-Jameson is now run by the third and fourth generation of the Nelson family, and has added facilities in California, Idaho, Pennsylvania, and Texas to meet the needs of its markets. Over the years, Nelson-Jameson has expanded its product offerings to meet the needs of food, dairy and beverage plants — becoming the supplier of choice in all 50 states, as well as many foreign countries.
