As an agricultural company headquartered in the small town of Mt. Angel, OR, we understand how close a tight-knit community is.

Our hearts are truly saddened by the West, Texas fertilizer explosion. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families for the loss of loved ones and for those injured as they work through this tragedy.

There is nothing more important to Wilco than the safety of our employees, customers, and the communities we serve. We ascribe to safety first in all aspects of our business.

While the cause of this tragic event is yet to be determined, we will continue to meet customers’ needs without the need to sell, store or supply anhydrous ammonia or ammonium nitrate fertilizer. Again, our deepest sympathies to anyone affected by such a tragedy.
