KENTLAND, INDIANA (August 13, 2015) — “We have more square footage, improved facilities, and most importantly, the ability to better take care of our customers.” That’s according to Tom Woodworth, owner of AgVenture of Eastern Kansas. Based at Iola, Kansas, the independently owned and operated regional seed company has continued to grow and now has moved into new facilities to accommodate their customers and their growth.
Woodworth describes the new warehouse and office facilities are now located at 700 West Miller St. Iola, just three blocks west of his former location. “The 50’x 225’ warehouse is situated on 4.5 acres of land. Woodworth explained, “The building is ideally suited for our seed business including climate control facilities, room for seed treatment, a 12’x 12’ conference and meeting room, offices and an open area. We have ample space to handle our SoilMaxx equipment as well as room to expand in the future.”
“It was time for us to expand,” said Woodworth. He says AgVenture of Eastern Kansas has steadily continued to reach more customers, and to have more acres committed to their products. “We are committed to providing our customers with three key things they need to improve profitability. Our seed products consistently show solid performance. Our staff provides professional seed support with tools and techniques to improve yield, APH and maximize profit. Our year-round, on-farm support, including our SoilMaxx testing services, brings the cropping plan full circle.”
Woodworth says he is pleased to have the infrastructure ready to manage their growth. “This is also important to have the facilities necessary for our personnel to get their jobs done right and on time for our customers. Our team has grown in number and in expertise. We continue to participate in national and local education and training programs to assure we are at our peak in providing our customers with cutting-edge agronomy and production practices. Nothing makes me happier than seeing a customer realize he’s exceeded his yield goals. The new facilities will help us proficiently deliver on our promises.”
