Richardson adds two crop input centres in Alberta
By Global Newswire
Richardson Pioneer Limited has announced the acquisition of two new crop inputs facilities in northeastern Alberta.
Richardson Pioneer is acquiring Webb’s Crop Services Ltd. in Vermilion, AB and Agro Guys Inc. near Forestburg, AB. Both businesses are independent, full-service retail crop inputs centres that provide local customers with seed, fertilizer and crop protection products. The acquisitions will close on August 31 and employees will join the Richardson Pioneer team on September 1.
While these two new locations will provide customers with crop inputs products and services in their local area, producers will also have access to grain handling and merchandising support through Richardson Pioneer’s Ag Business Centres in Lamont, Lavoy and Legacy Junction in Alberta and Marshall in Saskatchewan.
These Alberta locations are the latest additions to Richardson Pioneer’s growing network of retail crop inputs centres across the Prairies. Richardson acquired Crop First Agro in Grenfell, SK in January and it is also expanding its network through new builds. Richardson Pioneer recently opened a brand new crop inputs location in Elrose, SK and construction will be completed on a facility in Pasqua, SK later this fall. Next spring, Richardson Pioneer will open another new crop inputs centre near Wakaw, SK.
