Richardson Pioneer is continuing to increase it’s presence in Saskatchewan.
After announcing the building of crop inputs facilities in Pasqua, Elrose and Wakaw last year, Richardson Pioneer has completed a successful take over of Crop First Agro in Grenfell.
Tracey Shelton with Richardson Pioneer said they want to continue the excellent service provided to customers by Crop First Agro and grow the business as well.
“Crop First has been selling seed and crop protection products, and also providing agronomic advice. Which is something we will defiantly continue, but we also plan to add a high speed fertilizer blender in the Grenfell area, so really enhancing a well established business in the area,” Shelton said.
With the high speed blender customers will be able to buy fertilizer in Grenfell.
Shelton said all of the Crop First Agro employees have remained on staff since the sale.
She also said they are continuously looking for areas where they do not currently conduct business to expand to.
“We’re always looking for areas that we do not have a presence to expand our abilities to serve customers in those areas, Grenfell was certainly one of those areas,” said Shelton.
Co-Owner of Crop First Agro Dave Edgar also expressed their excitement to join the Richardson team, saying Richardson has an excellent long-standing reputation in the crop inputs business, that will enhance their current operations.
