Frontier Coop & Midwest Farmers Cooperative Announce Name, Headquarters

Jul 12, 2019


Unification of the two Cooperatives Effective this September

July 12, 2019 (Elmwood & Brainard, NE) –
After careful consideration, the boards of directors at two of Nebraska’s leading farmer-owned cooperatives have decided the name of the unified company and located a headquarters for the staff. The unification, which was announced in April, will take effect on September 1, 2019.

Following a long search for a new name and a lot of input from employees and patrons, the Frontier Cooperative name has been chosen for the new entity. The Frontier name is a nod to the company’s heritage but also an expression of its brand and purpose—to always be visionaries, tirelessly looking for new ways to support its farmer-centric communities.

While the Frontier name will remain, the company leadership felt it was important to rebrand the new company. Beginning September 1, 2019, patrons and communities will find the new logo on trucks, offices and uniforms. Patrons will notice the brand sends a bold statement. They will also likely be drawn to the underlined O and asking why? The underlined O emphasizes a visual limitless horizon line. It also gives the word Frontier a distinctive visual treatment and helps set the brand apart from others, similar to its philosophy of giving customers a unique experience that is better than anyone else. 

The board of directors has also located a new headquarters for the combined company. The new headquarters is located at 3333 Landmark Circle in north Lincoln, Nebr. The staff plans to be operating in the new headquarters office by September 1. The unified company will operate approximately 50 grain, agronomy, energy and feed locations across 14 counties in east-central Nebraska.

How have you experienced Frontier this last year? That’s a question I use when starting employee and producer meetings. When we stop and think about it, we realize that there are numerous ways we have experienced Frontier in the past year. Common examples I hear are ‘I saw a semi on the highway’ or ‘I saw a sprayer in a field.’ Maybe you saw an employee in the community, helping at a county fair, or participating in a town celebration. Perhaps an employee was judging the 4H/FFA contest your child was competing in.
