My Dad, Robert Hollweg, founded Armada Grain Company in 1948. He bought a small grind and mix operation on Armada's northside where he focused largely on grinding corn cob and mixing feed for local farmers.
In 1962, Dad acquired another facility on the southside of Armada with access to rail and began a grain merchandising and ingredient distribution business, in addition to the grind and mix operation. In 1966 he added a small pellet mill for pet food and specialty feeds.
Dad built a mill on the grain handling site in 1976 and subsequently closed the grind and mix facility, consolidating operations into one location.
