Pinnacle acquires East Bernard Milling Company and Max Birney

Company expands with more locations in Texas and Kansas.

Pinnacle Agriculture Holdings LLC recently announced it has successfully acquired Max Birney Aerial Spraying Inc. and East Bernard Milling Company.  East Bernard Milling will operate as part of Pinnacle's Sanders brand and Max Birney will operate as part of Pinnacle's AgOne Application Services brand.  The new Sanders location will be managed by former East Bernard Milling co-owners, Brady and Britt Whitley, and will remain at the same location in Texas. Located at the same location in Copeland, Kansas, the new AgOne location will be managed by former owner, Max Birney. The current employees of both companies will retain their positions under the new ownership.

The father and son team of Henry and Johnny Viktorin started East Bernard Milling Company in 1954 to provide quality feeds and friendly service to farmers and ranchers throughout Wharton County and beyond.  The Whitley Family purchased East Bernard Milling and took over operations on July 1, 2000.

Coupled with the existing Sanders locations in Combes, Hearne, Knippa, Marlin, and Taft, this will be Sanders’ sixth retail location in the southeast Texas area offering custom fertilizer blends, seed and crop protection products, and precision agriculture services through Sanders’ proprietary OptiGro system.

Max Birney was founded in 1980 as a full-service chemical application company, providing satellite-guided ground and aerial crop applications of fertilizers, pesticides, and fungicides. It will continue to provide ground and aerial application services, supplemented by industry leading agronomy and a complete slate of seed, custom fertilizer blends, crop protection products, and precision agriculture services through its proprietary OptiGro system.
