Springland Manufacturing was founded in 1985 by brothers Henry, John, and Herman Lepp on the family farm north of Rivers, Manitoba, Canada. They aimed to build a mechanical grain bin cleaner that had greater efficiency, was safer, and simpler to use than what was on the market at the time.

The first systems sold were round-tube unloaders for bins up to 48 feet in diameter. Then, the Springland U-Trough design was developed in 1998 in response to the need for faster emptying of larger grain bins with less product damage. The durability and advantages of the U-Trough Unloader proved themselves and, now marketed worldwide, has all but replaced the round-tube style.

Springland Manufacturing expanded into the commercial grain handling market in 1989 with commercial sweeps, and again in 2005 with the introduction of the Springland Elevator Wheel. These products have vaulted Springland well ahead of the competition.

Springland Manufacturing celebrated its 35th year of business in 2020. Today, Springland has grown a staff of dedicated local employees, and through its extensive dealer network, has sales spanning North America, Europe, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.
