Who We Are


IAT is run by Ben Cauthen, Ben Cranfill, Alex Greeson, Will Marsh, and Matthew Parker.  We are NC State University engineering graduates who are dedicated to streamlining the pine straw harvesting process.

What We Do


At IAT, we work to engineer solutions to your problems.  Our newest development is the Pine Bine, a machine that removes pine cones and sticks from pine straw before baling without backbreaking manual labor.
