Pinnacle Agriculture Holdings, LLC will soon begin construction of a new retail location in Franklin, Ky. Operating as part of Pinnacle’s Providence Agriculture brand, the Franklin location will be the new home of the current retail location in Bowling Green, Ky., specializing in the sale of seed, crop protection chemicals, fertilizer, precision agriculture services and custom application services.
When construction is complete, the Providence Agriculture operation currently located at 1753 Richpond Road in Bowling Green, Kentucky, will relocate to 6007 Bowling Green Road, Franklin, Kentucky 42134. The 32,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility in Franklin will include a 16,000-square-foot warehouse, a 2,400-square-foot office, and a 1,500-ton fertilizer facility. The location is set to open for business in early spring 2016. Shea Bray will continue as location manager, and all current Bowling Green employees will relocate to the new Franklin building upon completion. “My entire staff and I are excited about the move and look forward to supplying best-in-class agricultural products and services to area farmers from our brand new facility,” said Bray.
“We are very pleased to have Pinnacle become a part of our agri-business community in Simpson County,” said Simpson County Judge Executive, Jim Henderson. “I am really pleased with the job that our Magistrate, Marty Chandler, and the Franklin Simpson Industrial Authority did to help bring this outstanding company to our county.”
“The jobs that Pinnacle will bring to Franklin and to Simpson County are welcomed and greatly appreciated,” said Ronnie Clark, Mayor of Franklin. “Agriculture is extremely important to our area, and we welcome this outstanding company to our community. We greatly appreciate their investment in Franklin.”
“We are very enthusiastic about the upcoming launch and relocation to Franklin,” said Roger Toon, Providence Agriculture’s area operations manager. “Our new state-of-the-art facility on Bowling Green Road will allow us to better serve our current customers, as well as provide quality agricultural input products and award winning OptiGro program and services to new customers.”
