Dixie Grinders Inc. was founded in Guntersville, Alabama in August of 1984 by industry veterans Gene Grant, Roger Wiley, and Bill Sellnow.  They began their business by selling cutting parts and rebuilding the feedscrews, heads, rings, hoppers, and gearboxes of industrial meat grinders.  As time progressed, they began building their own versions of these major components and began offering their own complete line of grinders.


Today, Dixie Grinders Inc. is owned by father and son Bill Sellnow and Matt Sellnow.  The third generation, Caroline Sellnow Pearce and Johnson Sellnow are active in the business as well.  We have expanded multiple times and now have around 50 employees and we are always growing.
