“With the completion of this acquisition, we have significantly bolstered our position in the domestic agricultural marketplace,” said Pat Bowe, president and CEO of The Andersons in a recent press release.

Most of Lansing’s business operations will merge with The Andersons Grain Group to form a division to be known as The Andersons Trade Group. This combined business will be jointly led by Corey Jorgenson, president of assets and originations and Bill Krueger, president of commodities and merchandising.

The deal closed Jan. 1, 2019.
