Hopkinsville Elevator
Hopkinsville Elevator Co. In Hopkinsville Ky
In 1968, a small group of farmers developed plans for the forming of Hopkinsville Elevator as a cooperative. Approximately 180 investors proceeded to buy an existing grain facility to serve their needs. This facility had served the area for a number of years and had a capacity of 634,000 bushels. From this recent beginning the elevator had grown in membership to over 2300 patrons in 34 surrounding counties. The elevator system has a combined storage capacity of over 13,000,000 bushels with additional locations at South Union, Russellville, Casky and Guthrie in Kentucky and a barge loading facility at Clarksville, Tennessee. The elevator has now merged its farm supply business consisting of a fertilizer, chemical and seed department into a joint venture with Agri-Chem Inc., a similar locally owned company. Our largest addition came on line in 2004 with the addition of Commonwealth Agri-Energy, our 30,000,000 gallon/year ethanol plant. Furthermore, the cooperative recently formed HEC Crop Insurance which also adds to the full service nature of the cooperative. From the elevator's inception, we have strived to provide the services that the members require for the efficient operation of their business. To that end the elevator has provided patronage for over 42 years to the stockholders.
