With two locations in Wellsburg, Iowa, and Conrad, Iowa, Snittjer is a family-owned and -operated grain merchandising and elevator company with 11 employees.

"Snittjer is a well-run company with deep roots in the communities they serve," said Matt Carstens, president and CEO of Landus. "Landus has worked closely with the Snittjer team over the past two years through our Optimization model, and through our ongoing collaboration we have developed deep respect for their team and the communities they serve.

"Snittjer’s assets are in ideal locations for our sustainable growth plans at Landus as we continue to expand," continued Carstens. "We welcome Snittjer employees to the Landus team and are eager to work alongside them to continue to put local farmers at the center of everything we do."

"On behalf of both Pat Kennedy and me, as leaders we’re proud to say this opportunity is possible because Snittjer is financially sound and because of our strong team who will blend well with Landus," said J.R. "We are excited to join the Landus family and continue to serve our customers at the level they’ve come to expect, now with the full scope of Landus’ wide breadth of products and services."
