Hutchinson, KS — AgTrax, a global agribusiness software solutions company, headquartered in downtown Hutchinson, Kan., has been selected as the recipient of the 2021 Agri-Business of the Year award by the Hutchinson/Reno County Chamber of Commerce Agri-Business Committee.
The business was recognized for its 25- years of serving the global, state, and local agriculture communities, at a Farm City Week breakfast hosted by the Chamber and sponsored by AgTrax, on Wednesday, November 17.
Formed in 1996, AgTrax is the agribusiness industry’s leading grain accounting software solutions provider, designed specifically for grain elevators, fertilizer companies, full-service cooperatives, ethanol production plants, feed stores, agronomy product and service providers, petroleum outlets, c-stores, and other types of businesses in agriculture.
In 2014, AgTrax leaders refocused the company on what it does best – developing accounting software – and began creating strategic partnerships with ‘ag-centric’ software innovation organizations, to offer clients a variety of integrated applications to help meet their needs.
A practice AgTrax continues today, along with introducing new advanced software solutions.
In May 2021, the company moved to its new upper-story office conversion in downtown Hutchinson and celebrated its 25 years in business with a reception and ribbon cutting, attended by Kansas Secretary of Agriculture Mike Beam; Katie Sawyer, state director for U.S. Sen. Roger Marshall; city of Hutchinson Mayor Steve Garza; the Hutchinson Chamber of Commerce; and many of AgTrax’s customers, business partners, and colleagues.
The company’s milestones were further recognized, nationally, on June 22, when AgTrax President Gayle Lewis was interviewed LIVE by Janet Adkison on RFD-TV’s Market Day Report.
"Successful businesses are built-on relationships,” said Michael Hinton, AgTrax director of sales and marketing.
“Creating solid, long-lasting relationships with new and existing customers is, and always has been, our recipe for growth.
"With this, we also have a genuine responsibility to our agribusiness customers, to provide cutting-edge software solutions and unmatched service and support.
"Our people (employees & strategic partners alike) remain our greatest asset; it is because of their dedication and loyalty, that AgTrax can serve its customers and our local ag community with honesty, trust, fairness, and respect.
"We appreciate the Hutchinson/Reno County Chamber of Commerce Agri-Business Committee recognizing AgTrax for our continued, sustainable growth.”
“For 25-years and counting, AgTrax has been the ‘game-changing leader’ in the agribusiness software market, having contributed significantly to the global agriculture industry, the state of Kansas, and the Hutchinson/Reno County ag community," said Debra Teufel, President/CEO, Hutchinson/Reno County Chamber of Commerce.
"We congratulate them on their accomplishments and are proud to honor them with the Agri- Business of the Year award!”
