A son of Feed Products & Service Company’s founder, Greg Fallin learned about customer focus as a youngster working in the phosphate plant in Granite City, Illinois, a short distance from the Mississippi River. He joined the company full time in 1980 with a degree in agricultural economics and opportunities to position FP&S as a one-stop supplier of essential animal feed ingredients.
The phosphate-based product line has expanded to include other macro minerals and amino acids. Along with broadening the product line, Feed Products has built expertise in worldwide sourcing as well as material handling, shipping and storing. The result is today’s comprehensive product availability and superior distribution network across roads, rails and rivers.
“We take a proactive approach at Feed Products. Our strategy always starts with understanding what drives our customers’ business needs. That is how we have stayed on a first-name basis with them while we grew the company into a major supplier and distributor. As a result, we have become an even better partner for customers because now we can deliver convenient, single-provider access to worldwide sourcing. That old adage of big enough to serve you, small enough to know you – we live it every day.”
Mark Allgeier’s background includes software development and experience in trading and selling commodity co-products to the feed industry. At Feed Products, he applies that combination of skills to help current and prospective customers stay in touch with market developments. Mark keeps the sales force on top of agriculture- and food-related trends and developments worldwide so that Feed Products customers can rely on getting products they need at the most competitive prices.
“Having been around the feed industry all my life, I appreciate what it takes to keep American agriculture innovative and productive. It has to be able to keep supplying healthy, inexpensive food to our tables and to tables around the world. Feed Products and our customers play key roles in that process, so we are constantly working on ways to make the system work better.”
Gregory Fallin is the grandson of company founder, Earl A. Fallin. Starting at an early age Gregory has worked for the family business. Gregory learned the material handling side of the business by working various labor positions including barge cleaning, forklift operator, wheel loader operator and warehouse laborer. Gregory graduated from the University of Kansas with a degree in Economics and joined the company full time in February 2010 as Logistics Coordinator.
Gregory uses Feed Product’s strategic geographical advantage to arrange the most ideal routes to ensure that products are shipped to arrive on time to our customers. Working with the Feed Product’s team, Gregory strives to keep quality and service as the main priority.
“Being given the opportunity to join such a close-knit team of hard-working individuals at Feed Products drives me to become an effective contributor. Feed Products as a team works diligently every day to deliver quality products and competitive prices via river, road and rail.”
