Turf Ventures Becomes Full Line Distributor of The Andersons Turf & Specialty Group Products

 

ADDISON, ILLINOIS (August 1, 2011) – Turf Ventures, LLC (“TV”) is pleased to announce their new distribution agreement with the Turf & Specialty Group at The Andersons, Inc. (“The Andersons”) as of July 25th. This new agreement allows each of TV’s five Joint Venture locations to become full line distributors of The Andersons products. TV has selected The Andersons as their primary fertilizer manufacturer as a continuation of their strategy to enhance vendor relationships through mutual risk and reward ventures. “We believe that our vendors are a part of the TV team, it’s not an us versus them scenario,” said Brian Baker, President and CEO of TV. “We need to choose our vendor team as carefully as we do our own employees.”

Mr. Baker also stated that, “the decision to work primarily with The Andersons stems from the belief that The Andersons products and tools created to help the end user plan their applications far surpass anything in the industry. The Andersons continue to drive innovation.  We are very excited to be able to offer their product set and solutions to our customers.”
