SafeGrain Inc. is consolidating its Wapakoneta, Ohio, location and its Maxi-Tronic Loveland, Ohio, location under one name and one roof in Washington Township, Ohio.
According to reports, consolidating both SafeGrain and Maxi-Tronic under one roof will help streamline the company’s operations and reduce overhead costs, allowing the company to move toward more research and development efforts.
The new facility is 13,500 square feet, with 2,500 square feet of office space and a dedicated engineering space and warehouse space for production.
New branding launched in March
SafeGrain, which has been in business since 1954, was purchased in August 2022 by Zachary and Stacey Carr.
SafeGrain sensor technology is focused on providing assurance to those charged with grain handling and storage operations to alert them to safety concerns, such as interruptions to aeration or fluctuations in temperature.
“While SafeGrain has decades of experience and many relationships that go back that far, we want to build on that history to continuously improve our industry-leading technology,” said Zachary Carr, who also assumed the role of president for the company when he took ownership.
“This rebrand is a way of letting people know that we are committed to excellence and innovation now and into the future.”
With this rebrand, SafeGrain will offer all of its agricultural hazard monitoring solutions, formally under the brand Maxi-Tronic, under the SafeGrain brand. Customers will still experience the same quality and service they’ve come to expect, with a continued focus on elevating customer service and product modernization, with a fresh new look.
The rebranding introduces a new look and feel and provides brand consistency across their offering of grain handling, aeration, temperature systems, storage and hazard monitoring products. The rebranding also included expanding the brand identity to include a brandmark, color palette, tagline and messaging.
“The new tagline, ‘It’s in the name’ doubles down to remind our customers that our company and products have one goal focused on keeping your commodities and operators safe,” said Carr. “Our products and people are proven and trusted, and we’re only going to continue to make the industry safer and more efficient.”
Customers will immediately notice the new image reflected in the company’s social media, trade show presence and business correspondence. SafeGrain plans to laucnh its newly branded website soon.
