Merger Announcement

01-Sep-2017

September 1st marks the effective merger date between Agland Co-op and Heritage Cooperative. Since stockholders approved the Merger Agreement last February, the organizations have been working diligently to unify policies, procedures, systems and people. The focus throughout the process has been on ensuring as seamless a transition as possible for customers, members and employees.

The energy division of the combined cooperative will operate as 1st Choice Energy Services, which is 100% owned and operated by Heritage Cooperative. The grain, agronomy, and feed divisions will operate as Heritage Cooperative. However, the retail stores will undergo a name change to Heritage Country Store.

The merger between Heritage Cooperative and Agland Co-op will create a dynamic cooperative that will be financially stronger and more sustainable that either could achieve standing along. This will allow Heritage Cooperative to bring greater value and additional benefits to customers, members, employees, and our communities. 

The combined organization will serve customers throughout Ohio, as well as Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Illinois, Kentucky and Oklahoma. The cooperative includes 53 locations with over 5,000 farmer members.
