Our Story

Since 1885


Providing Sanitary Processing Solutions since 1885

The company was founded by Myron G. Newell, who came to Greensboro from Elmira, New York and opened a store in 1885 selling everything from hand churns to buggies.  At the suggestion of Newell’s son, Burton M. Newell, Sr., the company began specializing in the dairy business in the early 1920s.  Over the years, the company has expanded into the food, beverage, pharmaceutical, and personal care industries, having evolved from being a full line distributor to a full service systems integration company.

Our specialty is sanitary processing.  Our Controls staff – industry experts with over 20 years experience in electrical engineering, system controls and automation design – build sanitary design into every system.  Automation hardware and software controls are combined to create turnkey solutions for pasteurization, CIP, batching, blending and other processes.

Currently, M.G. Newell has three locations: Greensboro, NC, Louisville, KY, and Nashville, TN with the Greensboro location housing our corporate headquarters and our Greensboro division.
