Dorman Brothers, an agricultural supply company with locations in Goodland, Kan., and in Colorado at Burlington and Cheyenne Wells, will join Simplot’s AgriBusiness Group as part of the Simplot Grower Solutions network.

“Our goal at Simplot Grower Solutions is to continue to grow our business by expanding our reach in strategic areas as we focus on meeting customer needs,” said Dave Dufault, vice president of Simplot Retail. “Dorman Brothers fits in perfectly.”

Mike Dorman, who started Dorman Brothers in 1998 with his brother, Tim, said the business arrangement with Simplot will be good for customers and employees.

“We felt that Simplot Grower Solutions was the best fit for our employees and our customers, and their commitment to agriculture is well known throughout the industry,” he said.  “Each location will remain focused on providing customers with a full line of crop nutrients, crop protection, seed, specialty products, and agricultural technology.”

According to AgriBusiness Group president Garrett Lofto, the Dorman Brothers acquisition represents a good fit with existing Simplot operations.

“For more than 80 years, the J. R. Simplot Company has played a significant role in various sectors of the global food and agriculture system and this long term commitment continues,” said Lofto. “Dorman Brothers fits in very well with our existing retail operations and we are excited about how it will complement our recent announcement around the expansion of our Rock Springs phosphate operation."
