PRO Group, the Englewood, Colo-based buying group of distribution companies with more than 60 members, added J & J Bagging, located in Yazoo City, Miss., to its membership rolls.
J & J Bagging is a relative newcomer to the distribution business, starting up in 2015 as a facility for packing and fertilizer storage. Since then, J & J has expanded into a manufacturing and distribution center specializing in farm supply and serving customers in the southeast United States.
As a manufacturer of feed, seed and fertilizer, the J & J facility is comprised of a 150,000 square foot manufacturing plant and 200,000 square feet of storage space. Combined, the facility allows for fertilizer storage, seed conditioning and treating, automated packaging lines and more. To service a wide range of customers including independent farm supply stores, farm cooperatives, agricultural retail chains, sporting goods stores, and lawn and garden centers, J & J continues to expand their distribution and product services, including a line of wildlife attractants.
“We are thrilled to add J & J Bagging to the PRO Group distributor network,” said Steve Synnott, president and CEO at PRO Group. “Their focus on products and services that help farm stores thrive has delivered amazing growth year after year. PRO distributors and manufacturer partners will all enjoy working with J & J.”
PRO Group described a couple of benefits of membership: J & J Bagging will have the opportunity to collaborate with other distributor members, including those members who also specialize in the farm, agricultural and lawn and garden categories. Additionally, PRO’s services and programs will allow J & J to continue to expand their own programs.
“We are pleased to join the PRO Group organization and look forward to networking with member distributors and suppliers at future PRO events,” said Joseph Mohamed, president at J & J Bagging.
