Wilbur-Ellis Acquires Two Montana Companies
Wilbur-Ellis Company LLC, a recognized leader in precision agriculture technology and the distribution and marketing of plant protection, seed and nutritional products, recently announced the acquisitions of the assets of two Montana-based companies, Frontier Aviation based in Chester and Ag Air based in Rudyard. With these acquisitions, the Company strengthens its presence and expands its capabilities in seed, plant nutrition and aerial application in the market.
“These acquisitions expand our presence along the northern tier of the Golden Triangle in north central Montana,” said Wilbur-Ellis Area Manager Keith Knutson. “This expansion allows us to have a larger footprint in this high production cropping area and to continue to provide high-quality Wilbur-Ellis products to the growers in that area.”
These acquisitions are the continuation of a long-standing partnership. Both Frontier Aviation and Ag Air have been Wilbur-Ellis’ alliance partners since 2003. As alliance partners, Wilbur-Ellis is already very familiar with these well-run businesses, allowing for a smooth transition for both Frontier Aviation’s and Ag Air’s loyal customers. Jim and Julie Briden, as well as Kristie Pulst, will join the Wilbur-Ellis team, further ensuring an efficient changeover of ownership.
