Heritage Co-op has acquired Westman Aerial Spraying Ltd. The announcement was made earlier today on the company’s website. Heritage Co-Op had previously purchased a crop input business from Westman Aerial Spraying in 2015.
From today’s release ““We are pleased with the support from our members since we acquired the ag input business in 2015,” said Zacharias. “We are privileged to continue working with Jon Bagley and the team at Westman Aerial Spraying, and we look forward to a smooth transition.”
The release also stated that all previous staff, pilots and aircraft will remain the same during the transition. Jon Bagley, who initially started Westman Aerial Spraying Ltd 30-years ago, will continue to manage the aerial application business.
“With this acquisition, Heritage Co-op is the first co-op within the Co-operative Retailing System (CRS) to offer aerial spraying services to its farm customers.”
