Current A&E Ag employees will remain in place, working alongside Timac Agro USA’s Brett Johnson, Great Lakes Business Unit Director, including Michigan and Wisconsin. Current A&E Ag customers will benefit from Timac Agro USA’s products and sales model, to create customized crop programs directly with growers for more efficient use of nutrients and better economic returns.
