The Rundown

Northern Farmers Co-Op needed fertilizer storage that worked for them right now but also a building that could expand to meet future needs. We designed a building that did both. And with the changing nature of agriculture “You have to be at capacity to be able to handle that in today’s ag world,” said Brent Benike, Northern’s Manager. “Product has got to be on hand so you can get it out the door quickly.”

Customer Success

“Anybody that’s looking for a fertilizer system or storage system that

doesn’t break the budget, they are going to want to look pretty hard at this,”
