Pennfield sells poultry mill to Wenger Feeds to focus on dairy

Wenger's Feed Mill Inc. is to purchase the poultry feed mill of Pennfield Corp. in West Hempfield Township in Philadelphia state, USA.

Pennfield said it defined its strategy to focus on dairy and companion animal segments of the animal feed industry.

"This sale will provide the local poultry industry with continued excellent resources and, at the same time, allows us to focus on new areas of growth in its core business." chief executive officer Arnie Sumner of Pennfield said.

Pennfield, with locations in Mount Joy, Martinsburg and South Montrose, Pa., is a 93-year old manufacturer of feed for poultry, dairy and companion animals over a multi-state region of the eastern US.

Wenger Feeds is a manufacturer and supplier of poultry and swine feed, feed ingredients and allied services in the Mid-Atlantic region. "We feel this acquisition is a natural fit as we look strategically towards our future," said Barry Shaw, owner and chairman of the board of Wenger Feeds.

The final date for transfer has not been set; however, a smooth, orderly transition is expected for the employees, customers and suppliers involved, the announcement said.
