Consumer Supply

Growing from a Solid Tradition

signSince Consumers was founded in 1956, the company has been committed to exceeding our customers’ product and service expectations. Our business has grown dramatically in the last four years and steadily for 50 straight years.

The original location was 112 Pearl in Sioux City. It was an old three story building that was built prior to 1900. It was home for 20 years.

In 1976 the company acquired the assets of Peavey Company’s distribution business in Sioux City and moved into their facility at 2018 East Third Street. It was home for the next 25 years.

Growth and Expansion

interiorIn 2000, our company began construction of our new facility at 5101 Harbor Drive in Sioux City. On a 16 acre Industrial site, our company built a state of the art 100,000 sq. ft. facility. Our operations were moved in December of 2001. The new facility incorporated space for the entire trucking fleet currently in use and a bulk receiving facility with 800 tons of overhead bulk storage..

In 2002, our company decided to enter the companion animal business as a manufacturer of pet foods, pet treats and extruded horse feeds. The production facility, contained within the new distribution facility was completed in November of 2002 and production of Country Vet Pet Foods, our company’s proprietary label, began.

In 2005, growth of both the distribution business and the extrusion business required the addition of another 60,000 sq. ft. of warehouse storage. In 2006, the extrusion capacity was full and construction of a second production line was begun. Today, total extrusion capacity stands at 65,000 to 70,000 ton per year.

In 2006, our corporate offices and financial operations were moved to our new corporate facility in the Dakota Dunes business park in Dakota Dunes, South Dakota.

In 2010, we acquired the assets and business interests of Wholesale Feeds Inc. of Marion, Iowa. We took over operations September 3, 2010 and will continue operations as usual in Marion. The addition added another 125,000 sq. ft. of warehouse storage and a bulk packaging facility. It also expands our sales and distribution into new markets for which we are excited to compete.

In 2012, We formed an equal ownership LLC with CHS Inc. CHS will remain separate from the newly formed entity. The new entity will be called Consumers Supply Distributing, LLC, and is based in Sioux City. The new company combines two strong, high quality feed organizations to meet the livestock and companion animal nutrition needs of our current customers, as well as position our business for growth

In 2013, We entered into a joint venture to build a new state-of-the-art production facility to produce low-moisture block supplements. The new facility is located at our Harbor Drive building in Sioux City, Iowa.

In 2014, we broke ground on our state of the art facility that will produce bagged pelleted or texturized feeds in half of the facility and vitamin premixes in the other half. This will also be the new location of our corporate offices and financial operations. The new facility will be located in North Sioux City, South Dakota.

In 2018, we broke ground on an expansion of our pet food facility. This expansion will double our storage and bring in state of the art automation from beginning to end. It will also include an additional packaging line for small bags.

In 2019, We broke ground on an expansion of our low-moisture block supplement facility in Sioux City, Iowa. This expansion will double our production and give us wider ranges of production sizes.

In 2019, We opened a new distribution business in Rogers, Arkansas and began shipping customers in February. This expands our sales and distribution into new markets for which we are excited to compete.
