Hensall District Co-operative, Inc. (HDC) Purchases Fleming Feed Mill (FFM)
October 23, 2015 – (Hensall, Ontario) HDC is pleased to announce the purchase of the Fleming Feed Mill and Elevator operations in Clinton, Ontario.
Fleming Feed Mill has been a strong family owned business started by Bill and Margaret Fleming. For over 40 years they built a successful feed and elevator business. Bill earned the trust and loyalty of many customers while servicing Huron and Perth County areas. The Fleming Family wanted the new owners to continue the Fleming Legacy and continue to focus on excellent service and strong customer relationships. As a farmer-owned and customer focused company HDC was chosen to be the buyer of their family company. Since the passing of Bill in 2010 Rick McGlynn was chosen as the Fleming Feed Mill Manager. Rick has done an excellent job carrying on the Fleming legacy.
Bill built the original FFM facilities in 1967 to meet customer demand for pelleted feed and grain elevator services. Since then, the facilities have been updated and expanded numerous times to improve feed quality, volume and efficiencies. The feed mill can now produce in excess of 30mt per hour. The elevator is very efficient and can receive wheat, corn and crusher soys at 10,000 bu. per hour, dry 4000 bu. per hour and has storage for 1.5 million bushels of grain.
Marg, Ian, Jim and Rick and staff sincerely thank their loyal feed and grain customers, many of whom have dealt with them for over 48 years. Friendships and business relationships were created and nurtured to the benefit of you all. They thank you again for your patronage and hope you’ll support HDC going forward as much as you have the Fleming family.
HDC Board of Directors and management are pleased that the Fleming Family and Rick McGlynn chose HDC to purchase their business to carry on their legacy and tradition. We look forward to earning your business and the opportunity of increasing our feed market share for Ontario’s poultry producers.
