Our Mission

TO PROFITABLY EXCEED EXPECTATIONS USING THREE PRINCIPLES:
BE HONEST, WORK HARD, AND LIVE BY THE GOLDEN RULE
 

Founded in 1899, we are a low overhead manufacturer & distributor located in a wheat field in Minneapolis, KS. Just a few miles from the geographical center of the U.S.
Incorporated in 1906, we have a long history of hardworking, friendly folks with a “Can Do” attitude. To date, we are one of the oldest continuously operating businesses in North America.
We inspire a culture of excellence within our employees to ensure that you get what you need, when you need it. We strongly believe “It’s not what you buy, it’s why you buy.”
We invest in our communities to make them better places to raise families. Our employees are encouraged to help make our communities a better place to live and work.
