AgTrax was selected as the recipient of the 2021 Agri-Business of the Year award by the Hutchinson/Reno County Chamber of Commerce Agri-Business Committee.
The business was recognized for its 25 years of serving the global, state, and local agriculture communities, at a Farm City Week breakfast hosted by the Chamber and sponsored by AgTrax, on November17.
Formed in 1996, AgTrax is a leading grain accounting software solutions provider, designed specifically for grain elevators, fertilizer companies, full-service cooperatives, ethanol production plants, feed stores, agronomy product and service providers, petroleum outlets, c-stores, and other types of businesses in agriculture.
In 2014, AgTrax leaders refocused the company on developing accounting software and began creating strategic partnerships with ‘ag-centric’ software innovation organizations, to offer clients a variety of integrated applications to help meet their needs.
This May, the company moved to its new upper-story office conversion in downtown Hutchinson, Kan., and celebrated its 25th anniversary in business with a reception and ribbon cutting, attended by Kansas Secretary of Agriculture Mike Beam; Katie Sawyer, State Director for U.S. Senator Roger Marshall; City of Hutchinson Mayor Steve Garza; the Hutchinson Chamber of Commerce, and many of AgTrax’s customers, business partners and colleagues.
The company’s milestones were further recognized nationally on June 22, when AgTrax President Gayle Lewis was interviewed LIVE by Janet Adkison on RFD-TV’s Market Day Report.
"Successful businesses are built-on relationships,” says Michael Hinton, director of sales & marketing. “Creating solid, long-lasting relationships with new and existing customers is, and always has been, our recipe for growth.
"With this, we also have a genuine responsibility to our agribusiness customers, to provide cutting-edge software solutions and unmatched service and support. Our people (employees & strategic partners alike) remain our greatest asset; it is because of their dedication and loyalty, that AgTrax can serve its customers and our local ag community with honesty, trust, fairness, and respect.”
