Monroe Tufline has designed and manufactured a complete line of tillage and dirt working equipment since the company’s founding in 1958. Monroe Tufline Manufacturing Company Inc., was founded by brothers, Joseph S. Perkins and J.C. Perkins in Columbus, MS with the purpose of building quality farm equipment. Joe and J.C. had both worked in another farm implement business before becoming the first two employees of Monroe Manufacturing which was located in a small garage on “river hill” in Columbus near the Tombigbee River.
The name Monroe Manufacturing was chosen due to their first customer being located in neighboring Monroe County Mississippi. The business was incorporated on November 23, 1964. There was another company named Monroe Manufacturing, hence the name Tufline was created by Joe Perkins and added to Monroe. He said “Tufline” meant a tough line of equipment. The Tufline brand name was born and has become a well known brand and synonymous with quality in the industry. Monroe Tufline operated on Highway 82 west of town for a few years until moving in 1964 to the present location on 2219 Tufline Lane, just off Highway 45 North in Columbus. Many building additions and product additions occurred over the years as the business grew. The Monroe Mister sprayer was among one of the first products produced as were three point disc harrows, which was the primary product for many years until many new product offerings were introduced in the early 80’s and beyond. A big addition to the product offering was box blades and grader blades which were the first products in Tufline’s expanding line of Landscape equipment.
Many other specialty implements were introduced over the years which became Tufline’s Specialty Equipment Line which include sub-soilers, v-plows, disc plows, row disc, pasture renovators, and cultipackers. In the 90’s, Tufline’s Sportsman line of products was introduced which included disc harrows, box blades, landscape rakes, and pull type spreaders all designed to be pulled with all-terrain vehicles. These implements were designed with the same principles of quality that were put into the tractor implements which made them the toughest line of ATV implements on the market. Tufline continued to grow and expand the disc harrow product line which continues to be the foundation and staple of their product offering. Lift disc harrows range from 4’ to 10’6” widths. Pull-Type disc harrows in tandem and offset designs are offered from 6’ to 17’ widths. The latest additions to Tufline’s product offering include wheeled box scrapers, vertical tillage implements, rotary tillers, and hay rakes.
Joe Perkins continued to work at the company he started with his brother until his passing in 1999. J.C. Perkins retired in 2002. Joe’s son, Tim Perkins, now serves as President and J.C.’s son, Sid Perkins, serves as Vice-President. They strive to continue to manage the company with the honesty and integrity that their fathers exemplified.
