Wilbur-Ellis Acquires Nebraska Seed Retailer
Wilbur-Ellis’ Agribusiness, a recognized leader in precision agriculture technology and the distribution and marketing of plant protection, seed and nutritional products, has acquired the assets of Olson Ag Enterprise, a seed retailer located in Grand Island, NE.
“We are always on the lookout for great companies and people to add to our business,” said Wilbur-Ellis Area Manager Loran Kaiser. “Olson Ag’s seed portfolio and close distance to our Prosser location will help us better serve our customers in the region. We look forward to working with Luke and continuing to grow his successful business.”
Luke Olson opened Olson Ag Enterprise as the owner and operator in 2012. In four short years of working in corn and soybean sales, Olson grew his business into a highly successful seed business.
“Wilbur-Ellis is a unique ag retail business, and you can see the difference compared to the industry,” said Luke Olson. “Everyone through the process has been extremely satisfying to work with and I only see that continuing with our business relationship. I am very ecstatic to offer my customers a broad selection of products and service that Wilbur-Ellis and I can provide.”
As of January 6, 2016, Olson Ag Enterprise officially became part of Wilbur-Ellis’ Agribusiness. The soon-to-be full-service agribusiness retailer is located at 3323 W. Airport Road, Grand Island, NE, 68803. Branch Manager Luke Olson can be reached via email at [email protected].
