The Andersons, Inc. is an American agribusiness established in 1947, that began as Andersons Truck Terminal in the 1940s for the grain industry, headquartered in Maumee, Ohio. In various phases it provided merchandising, production, and distribution of products and services to the agribusiness community, organized into multiple business groups: grain, ethanol, plant nutrients, retail, turf & specialty, and rail. The grain arm still provides grain storage and management facilities, crop insurance, commodity risk management and grain delivery services through its rail business, with a particular focus on the Eastern Corn Belt of Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Nebraska and Illinois, through grain terminals located in those states.
It had revenues of $4,576,331,000 for the 2011 fiscal year ending December 31, 2011.
On August 19, 2003, The Andersons announced to restate income for 2002 and the first quarter of 2003, after they determined that the earnings reported under a five-year grain marketing agreement did not follow a new accounting pronouncement. In total, the company's income remained unchanged.
On November 18, 2005, The Andersons restated the Statement of Cash Flows for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2005, due to an error in the procedures of preparation.
On January 15, 2017, The Andersons announced that they will cease their retail operations, closing stores in Maumee, Toledo and Columbus, Ohio, during the second quarter of 2017, and focus on their grain, rail car, ethanol, and plant nutrients units.
