Pinnacle Acquires Another Retailer
Merely 24 hours after announcing the acquisition of an ag retail operation in Kentucky, Pinnacle Agriculture Holdings, LLC., through its subsidiary Jimmy Sanders Inc., has acquired Acuff Farm Supply. Located in Lubbock County, TX, Acuff was founded in 1960 as a full-service farm supply operation, providing seed, fertilizer, crop protection chemicals, as well as various hardware and implement supplies to local growers.
The new Sanders location will be managed by former Acuff owner, Don Jones, and will remain located at 11523 E FM 40, Lubbock, TX, 79403. The current employees of Acuff will retain their positions under the new Sanders ownership. “Sanders is very pleased with the recent purchase of this long-established, respected business and welcomes its staff to our family,” said Dane Higgins, Area Manager. “We are confident that the farmers Acuff has served so well will experience a seamless transition and continue to receive efficient, competitive and timely service.”
Don Jones, location manager and former Acuff owner said, “This has been a difficult decision for me due to the long-standing relationship with my customers, but I was careful to select only a company who shares similar commitments to their customers and employees. Sanders patterns their business on four core principles that put the customer first, and that was very important to us. I am pleased not only about the transition of ownership, but also the ability to continue to manage the operations and interact daily with my customers.”
Coupled with the existing Sanders location at 15003 FM 400 in Slaton, TX, this will be Sanders’ second retail location in the Lubbock/Slaton area offering custom fertilizer blends, as well as seed and crop protection products. Both locations also provide award-winning precision ag services through Sanders’ proprietary OptiGro system.
