Tecomate Wildlife Systems, LLC ("Tecomate"), the leader of modern food plot management and owner of Tecomate Seed, announces that it has entered into a strategic alliance with Pinnacle Agriculture Holdings, LLC ("Pinnacle"), a best-in-class agricultural retail distribution business that specializes in the production and distribution of seed, fertilizer and crop protection chemicals.
The strategic alliance will provide Tecomate with key wildlife products, processing facilities, distribution centers and sales through Pinnacle's ever-growing network of nearly 150 retail stores across the United States.
Pinnacle's extensive retail presence in the whitetail market geography positions Tecomate to further strengthen its standing in the wildlife seed market.
The partnership will provide Pinnacle with nationwide market access for seed and related agricultural products and services through the respected Tecomate brand, which is driven in large part by two of the most-watched field sports television series in the outdoor industry.
"This is a game changer for Tecomate and the wildlife food plot industry," said Tecomate President, David Morris.
Morris continued, "Pinnacle, best known for its flagship southern brand, Sanders, brings vast production, logistics and distribution resources to the table. No other company can match their vertical integration, in seed, fertilizer and chemicals.
"Our continued longstanding partnership with Barenbrug, USA for premium and proprietary forage seed, together with the unsurpassed strength of Pinnacle in the cereal and commodity seed market, will allow Tecomate to offer targeted, competitively priced wildlife seed products of every type to meet every need - from that of the casual food plotter to the most serious game manager planting hundreds of acres of year-round plots.
"Our relationship with Pinnacle also facilitates the possibility for Tecomate-branded fertilizer and herbicides aimed at meeting the specific requirements of the wildlife food plot market."
"We are extremely excited to join forces with Tecomate and combine our individual strengths for mutual success in the agricultural input and wildlife markets," said Tommy Jumper, Pinnacle's Vice President of Seed Strategy and Procurement.
"By name and reputation in our respective industries, Pinnacle and Tecomate have long known a great deal about one another and recently determined that the time was right to work as a team to further enhance the product and service offerings we bring to our valued customers.
"Together, we hope to build a business that is exponentially more significant than either of us has previously enjoyed, and one that further benefits our loyal customer base," said Jumper.
