A group of independent ag retailers from the Prairies have banded together under the banner of AgLink Canada.
The 14 businesses include three from Alberta — Agro Plus of Lethbridge; Agro Plus Solutions of Dunmore; and McEwens Fuels and Fertilizers of Fort Saskatchewan.
AgLink Canada will be allied with AgLink Australia, which is a collective of independent retailers with annual sales of $1.2 billion.
The deal gives the Canadian retailers access to all intellectual property, management systems, and governance models of the Australian group. AgLink Australia CEO Bill Dowdle will move to Canada to establish the new organization.
