Volm Celebrating 60th Anniversary
ANTIGO, WI - Volm Companies is celebrating 60 years of innovation this year. In 1954 Gerald Volm, founder of the company, opened a small farm supply store carrying burlap potato bags in the rural community of Bryant, Wisconsin. Volm then formed distributor relationships with other bag companies and moved its growing business to Antigo, Wisconsin where it began manufacturing its own bags to meet changing market needs.
In addition, Volm has invested in a packaging equipment manufacturing business and partnered with several equipment suppliers to be able to provide complete solutions for growers, packers and processors. Volm has since expanded to include multiple manufacturing, sales, and distribution locations across the nation with sales support in Canada as well.
Matt Alexander, VP of Sales & Marketing tells us, “As Volm continues to make strategic investments in North America to strengthen its core fresh produce business; the future is bright and full of opportunities. Customers can expect to see a constant stream of innovative packaging and equipment solutions from their trusted long term partner who understands the fresh produce supply chain from packing facility to market shelf.”
The company continues to follow Gerald Volm’s example by serving customers the high value solutions they need, along with the personalized customer service they deserve. Volm will continue to celebrate their anniversary throughout the year at various events including October’s PMA Fresh Summit where they invite their customers and attendees to join them at their booth.
