About The Andersons

For more than 60 years, The Andersons, Inc. has been a mainstay in northwest Ohio and a leader in the agricultural sector throughout the Eastern Corn Belt. Harold and Margaret Anderson first began serving the local farming community in 1947 with truck and grain terminals, as well as rail transfer capability for ship loading on the Maumee River.

During its rich history, The Andersons has always been recognized as an innovator, beginning with opening the first U.S. deep-water grain loading facility in the Great Lakes and installing the largest steel tank grain storage facility in North America. What began as a single grain elevator and one man’s dream has grown into a publicly traded company with diverse interests that include agribusinesses such as grain and plant nutrients as well as railcar leasing and repair, industrial products formulation, turf products, retailing and most recently, ethanol operations.

Today, throughout all of The Andersons’ business endeavors, the company and its nearly 3,000 employees are committed to providing extraordinary service with the utmost integrity.
