MUSCATINE, Iowa — The Kent brand recognized its 90th anniversary on December 15 in a year that saw the groundbreaking on a new state-of-the-art feed facility in Northwest Iowa, and a legacy gift to Iowa State University.
The celebration of the company’s 90th anniversary, marked by an employee celebration at corporate headquarters in Muscatine, was the kickoff to a year-long campaign demonstrating how reputation matters — from quality to innovation to service — and how the Kent brand continues to honor its legacy.
“It’s a proud moment to reflect back on our 90 years of leadership in the livestock industry, to oversee the current initiatives Kent has launched, and to envision achievements yet to come,” said Gage A. Kent, President and Chief Operating Officer, Kent Corporation.
Kent continues to find ways to be a transformative force, embracing technology and working to fulfill the promise of quality animal nutrition that you can that trust — guaranteed.
From Kent’s beginnings in 1927 when Gage A. Kent developed Baby Beef™ — the feed without a filler – a reputation was established for high-quality animal nutrition products that continues today. The success of that first product helped grow the brand, and became the basis for a reputation of quality, service and trust that still endures.
“Reputation is so important to our company,” Gage A. Kent said. “At Kent, we strive to deliver on our reputation with superior quality products and innovative solutions that people expect when they hear the Kent name.”
Along with the celebration of historical achievements, Kent recognized its recent efforts to continue to honor its heritage.
