The Agway Story
In 1970 Mr. Aguillard resigned his partnership and founded Agway Systems, Inc. of Baton Rouge Louisiana.
Mr. Aguillard rented a small partitioned warehouse where he provided storage of raw materials used in the manufacture of finished consumer paper items.
As business continued to grow, Mr. Aguillard entered into a long term lease agreement with the Port of Baton Rouge and constructed his first company owned building located at the Barge Terminal Road Property.
The Barge Terminal Warehouse offered Boxcar Receiving and Shipping of Warehoused Goods; Contract Packaging, Transloading, Local Drayage and Bulk Truck Transportation. This facility now provides 250,000 square feet of warehousing.
Our expansion continued with the purchase of property on Leisure Road and the construction of a 180,000 square foot facility providing Out-Plant Packaging and Transloading Services. This included installation of a Form, Fill and Seal (FFS), Bulk Box, Super-Sack Packaging Lines and rail tracks to accommodate sixty-five railcars was the first of its kind in the area.
In 2016 we opened the Agway Ronaldson East facility consisting of 200,000 square feet with 100,000 SF of Temperature Controlled Space. In 2019, we expanded with an additional 200,000 square feet.
We have a fleet of Company Owned Tractors and Leased Trailers ready to provide Local Drayage service between the Warehouse and Manufacturing Plants. Our fleet of Long Term Contract Owner Operators provide Over the Road Transportation between Baton Rouge and the Intermodal Container Terminals in New Orleans.
