Hesco, Inc. was started in 1985 as a small family business by Bruce and Colleen Hestad. Their mission was to identify markets that needed attention to quality. The Hestads knew that quality people would make the difference in the long term growth and success of Hesco. Their focus was not just with Hesco employees, but also in the development of a network of suppliers that would add value to the sales process, and in the end, to Hesco's customers.
Developing an unwavering commitment to superior quality and customer service were the attributes that led to the growth of the company. We have accomplished many milestones. Our customers require high quality grain products that have been processed using strict safety procedures and with traceability maintained. And we deliver products that meet or exceed their expectations every day.
In September 2008, the Hestads sold the company to the Hanson and Hennrich families. This group has represented the core executive management team since 2005. The transition to new ownership was seamless as the key elements were in place. Hesco continues to be committed to superior quality products, customer service, and long-term relationships with all people and companies we serve.
