Helena Chemical Buys Centennial Ag Supply
Dec. 22, 2017
Jake Adler of Holyoke, who has served as president of Centennial Ag, will continue as branch manager with Helena for all the stores which they acquired in the purchase this week.
He and his team will be running the branch for the Helena brand.
With Centennial Ag company headquarters in Greeley, there are also locations in Kersey, Yuma, Holyoke and Julesburg in Colorado; Imperial, Nebraska; and Pine Bluffs, Wyoming.
Centennial Ag Supply was started in Kersey in 1976 by Jim Klein. The company sells retail crop nutrients and crop protection products to area farmers, as well as application and technical services that go along with those products.
“It’s sad to see one of the last independent family-owned businesses go through consolidation,” said Adler. “But at the same time, the same group of good people will be servicing customers,” he added.
There are certainly advantages for a larger company like Helena, Adler pointed out. While they still have a good local feel, they’ll be able to offer more resources, and customers and employees alike will benefit.
Adler said that invoices will continue to be generated locally as the staff works to provide solid service as Helena Chemical Company.
