Thursday, November 13, 2014 -

Ft. Lupton, CO, November 13, 2014 – Pinnacle Agriculture Holdings, LLC (“Pinnacle”) has successfully acquired Reck Aviation, Inc. (“Reck Aviation”).  Reck Aviation will operate as part of Pinnacle's AgOne Application Services™ brand ("AgOne").   Located in Ft. Lupton, Colorado, Reck Aviation is a family-owned, full-service chemical application company providing aerial crop applications of fertilizers, pesticides, and fungicides.

The new AgOne location will be managed by former owner and pilot, Matt Reck, and will remain located at 13986 Weld County Road 26, Ft. Lupton, Colorado 80621.  All employees of Reck Aviation will retain their current positions under the new ownership.

Prior to owning his own aviation business, Matt Reck spent thirteen years as an agriculture pilot for South Weld Ag, Inc., Aerial Sprayers, Inc., and Low Level Dusting Company, Inc.  Matt is strongly committed to his customers and their success.  “I really enjoy being an integral part of my customers’ farming success,” Reck said.  “My decision to unify with Pinnacle as part of their AgOne brand was largely due to their similar commitment to the success of their customers and employees.  They are all about putting the customer first, and that is extremely important in this industry.  We are excited about expanding our product and service offerings to bring added value to our growers.”

 “Pinnacle and AgOne are very pleased with the recent acquisition of Reck Aviation, and thrilled with the opportunity to service Colorado growers,” said Jason White, Brand President.  “We believe that area growers will be very happy with the complement of products and services that will be offered.  Matt and his team have a great track record for service and stewardship, and we are confident that the farmers they have served so well will experience a smooth transition and continue to receive efficient, competitive and timely service.” 

The new AgOne location will continue to provide aerial application services, supplemented by industry leading agronomy and a complete slate of seed, custom fertilizer blends, crop protection products, and award-winning precision agriculture services through its proprietary OptiGro® system.
