Stricks Ag owns elevators and a processing facility in Chester, Montana, as well as various operations throughout Montana and central Canada. The Chester facility cleans and sorts pulse and specialty grain products in bulk, totes, and bags and ships via railcar and truck for delivery throughout North America and overseas, the company said. Stricks said it adheres to a strict quality assurance and identity preserved program.
“The combination of Stricks and Redwood will allow us to accelerate the growth of our processing operations and expand our customer base,” said Tyler Streit, chief executive officer. “We’ve had a great relationship with Redwood as a customer and are excited to team with them. Our focus on supplying consistently high-quality product allows us to connect our local farmers directly to our end-users.”
Mike Kincaid, president of The Redwood Group, added, “Stricks runs a first-class operation. Their origination strength and focus on the farmer, along with Montana’s proven record of reliably growing premium quality pulses has built a strong foundation. We look forward to investing further and integrating our cultures, experience, and personnel.”Redwood was formed in 2010 with a focus on trading whole grains, specialty crops and energy products throughout the United States and Canada. The company also exports products around the world. Earlier this month the company acquired two Missouri, U.S.-based facilities from Lathrop Feed & Grain, Inc.
