About

NUWAY COOPERATIVE: A TIMELINE OF GROWTH

NuWay Cooperative is a local, farmer-owned, customer-focused company supplying agronomy products and services, as well as bulk energy, in southern Minnesota and northern Iowa. With the main office based in Trimont, Minnesota and Operations in Welcome, MN; NuWay employs over 80 people full time and seasonally who serve in excess of 2,500 farm and non-farm customers.

As opposed to a private business, which focuses on generating profits for shareholders, a cooperative is owned and controlled by the customers it serves and operates for their benefit. The “co-op” provides goods and services needed and requested by its customers who, at the end of the day, divide any profits.

OUR HISTORY >

Our Leaders: Visionary and Grounded in Reality

NuWay Cooperative is controlled by a board of 10 member-elected directors that makes policy decisions, approves major expenditures of capital and hires a CEO/general manager to guide the company’s day-to-day operations. Chosen for their vision, these directors realize the harsh realities of the agricultural industry.

Giving Back: A Value Central to NuWay’s Culture

NuWay Cooperative provides for and gives back to the communities in which our members and our employees live and work. As a major employer offering good-paying jobs and career opportunities, we’re a force for good—attracting local talent to stay and raise their families and new talent to settle here.
 
NuWay Cooperative is also an engaged corporate citizen, sponsoring and participating in local government, education, service organizations and events with the aim of preserving and enriching lives. 
 
Each year, NuWay participates in and donates to many community events such as parades, 4-H achievement days and county fairs. We purchase thousands of dollars in premiums at livestock auctions held during these events, supporting the important role 4-H plays in the developing future ag leaders.
 
“We’re not just good corporate citizens. Our members and employees donate hundreds of volunteer hours as local firefighters and EMTs, scout leaders, team coaches, town council members and church deacons—to name a few roles. We’re proud of the way our people give back to their communities.”
 
Whether corporately or individually, we do everything with generosity, integrity and an unswerving commitment to the towns and cities in which we live and work. This dedication stems from the core values of NuWay Cooperative’s Brand Vision: “We want to be a diverse partner to you and your community, delivering exceptional value through knowledge and innovation.”
