The DeGeest Connection

DeGeest Steel Works is a metal fabrication company located in Tea, South Dakota. With a focus on large steel production weldments for Original Equipment Manufacturers across multiple industries, the company sought to bring automation to its finishing process for greater efficiency and to eliminate a growing bottleneck in production.

After a lengthy search, the company discovered Lesta near Milan, Italy. Knowing other North American manufacturers shared the same frustration, the two companies formed a new entity – LestaUSA.

Today, LestaUSA is a product manufactured and distributed by DeGeest Automation, which, along with DeGeest Steel Works, is a division of DeGeest Corporation. The company’s facility in Tea, South Dakota is home to LestaUSA, where robots are designed, built, and integrated for distribution across North America. Research and development are also done at this location.
