Blog # 3 - Parrish & Heimbecker - Global Reach With Local Roots
The numbers are impressive and the global reach is extensive, but the heartbeat of Parrish & Heimbecker hasn’t changed in 110 years. We are still a family-owned business that proudly positions Canada as a global leader in agri-food.
Parrish & Heimbecker is headquartered in Winnipeg. We are a growth-oriented, technologically advanced, global leader in grain merchandising, crop inputs, flour milling and feed mills.
P&H’s National Grain Asset and Crop Input Network extends from coast to coast in Canada. Our facilities are strategically located to match producer grain with the quality, quantity and logistical requirements of domestic and export end users. We have 1,500 employees across Canada, 45 grain and crop input sites, 6 export terminals, and customers in 24 countries.
Our size allows us to compete in global markets, and yet we are still a family business. Started in 1909 by W.L. Parrish in Brandon, M.B., and Norman Heimbecker in Hanover, O.N., members of the two families still own and manage the company.
As the third largest grain company in Canada, P&H offers growers superior market insights, competitive local cash bids and local expertise. We are the largest Canadian-owned milling company, with eight mills across Canada. New-Life Mills, a division of P&H, manufactures livestock nutrition with five production facilities.
P&H has more than 70 locations across Canada. We are a critical link between Canadian producers and the world. Our equipment and expertise helps producers grow healthy crops, keeps livestock thriving, moves mountains of grain around the world, mills wheat into flour and ultimately keeps families around the world fed every day.
At the heart of the company is a commitment to see customers and communities thrive. You’ll find our facilities and expertise at critical points along the agriculture and food value chain. No matter in which location you see the P&H crest hanging on the wall, we are proud to be a critical linchpin in the chain of people helping feed the world.
A global enterprise run by people with deep roots in the areas they serve. That’s a powerful combination.
Local roots. Global reach. P&H is a family-owned company making Canada proud.
