Chromatin Acquires Kirkland Seed


Late last week, Chromatin acquired Kirkland Seed Inc., a forage sorghum seed supplier based in Vega, Texas.

“Our business is based on quality seed production, combined with outstanding customer service and relationships,” says Lester Kirkland who manages the company. “I am pleased to be joining the Chromatin team, and I look forward to introducing Chromatin’s full lineup of high performance grain and forage sorghum products to our customers.”

The Kirkland Seed grower network and production facilities add operating capacity to Chromatin’s sorghum infrastructure.

“The addition of this site optimizes our inventory processing capabilities,” says Ken Thompson, Chromatin’s director of plant operations. “With this addition, Chromatin will immediately achieve important efficiencies throughout our network.”

According to Daphne Preuss, Chromatin CEO, this is the fifth recent sorghum transaction completed by the company’s mergers and acquisitions team.
