Sandhills Publishing Company is a privately held American multinational technology company that produces trade and consumer magazines, computer software, and online services. The company primarily serves the transportation, agriculture, aircraft, heavy machinery, and technology industries. Its trade publications include TractorHouse, Machinery Trader, Machinery Trader Auction Results, Truck Paper, RentalYard, and AuctionTime, in addition to Controller, Executive Controller, and Charter Hub. Each print publication also has a companion website. The company's technology publications include Computer Power User ('CPU') and CyberTrend (formerly known as PC Today), which are both published monthly.

The company was first established by Tom and Rhonda Peed as Peed Corp. in 1978 in Webster City, Iowa. In 1985, the headquarters were relocated to a 68-acre (280,000 m2) campus in the Highlands neighborhood of Lincoln, Nebraska, where they remain. In June 2000, Sandhills added a data redundancy center in Scottsdale, Arizona. In 2011, the company completed its Data Center building,[1] a LEED gold-rated building that houses the company's server farm. During 2012, Sandhills opened new offices in Manchester, Luxembourg, Brisbane, and Madrid.

The Lincoln campus continued to expand in 2015 with the addition of the Binary Building.[2] In the same year, Sandhills partnered again with Goss International,[3] a company that supplies presses and finishing systems, to install a new press and saddlesticher.
