The Andersons buys over Capstone Commodities



 The Andersons, Inc. announced on October 1 that it has purchased Capstone Commodities, which specialises in providing feed ingredients to dairies and feed mills, feed yards and exporters predominantly within the southwestern United States.


"We are excited to expand our feed ingredient portfolio and geographic footprint in the southwest," said Eric Watts, vice president at The Andersons Trade and Processing. "As a trusted partner in the feed ingredient industry for many years, we are eager to offer greater options to our feed customers."


This acquisition further supports The Andersons' strategy to expand in its core grain and fertiliser businesses, including commodity merchandising and the company's vision to become the most nimble and innovative North American agriculture supply chain company.


"Having worked with The Andersons for many years, I look forward to being part of the larger organisation," said Mike Rickert, president of Capstone Commodities. "This team of employees, which is among the most skilled and experienced in the industry, has been critical to our success. The market knowledge of the expanded team provides tremendous value to our customers and opens up opportunity across the trade region. I look forward to a bright future with The Andersons."


Capstone Commodities will continue to work under its name as a wholly owned subsidiary of The Andersons, Inc.
