HydroAg opens storefront in Maxwell

hydroagFor more than a year, HydroAg has provided contracting services for irrigation design and other projects out of Maxwell. On the irrigation side, that includes irrigation design, installations, pump replacement and repairs, and designing and installing complete filter systems and irrigation power units. Other project work types include berm building, land leveling, and rock removal. While those services will remain the company’s bread-and-butter, its recently opened wholesale and retail spaces and storefront promise to offer a little bit of everything to residents of Maxwell surrounding areas.

“The main business is irrigation design and construction, along with some other construction aspects,” said Brian Neal of HydroAg. “The store, it’s really more for the community.”

The expansion at HydroAg is going to create jobs in Maxwell: Neal anticipates that between retail and wholesale, the business will create 40 to 60 new positions, and that it could expand from there.

“We currently have two full-time employees in the storefront. There will be four to five full-time in the retail store, as we get going here a little faster,” Neal said, adding that additional positions would be created for delivery services, loading products and equipment, and more.

In addition to creating jobs with its new operations, HydroAg will have a wide array of products in stock for its customers. The 6,000 square foot retail and 25,000 square foot wholesale areas already have irrigation and hardware supplies on the shelves or in stock, and the inventory is expanding. Neal said when all is said and done, the store would increase its retail inventory by an additional 40 percent. The back of the building will expand to include limited lumber, bag cement, and more. Other products that will make their way into the store in the coming months include fencing and feed,

“Anything you would need to do an at-home project, to do something at home or on your ranch, we are going to have it. It’s going to be like a miniature Home Depot,” Neal said. “We’re trying to be as fair as possible with our prices, because if you need something, we want your first thought to be to come here, before you have to go out of town to buy it. And if we don’t have everything you need currently, we will definitely hear what you have to say.”

Neal said that a grand opening is in the works, but wouldn’t name a date. In the meantime, the folks at HyrdroAg are hoping you will stop by to check out what they have at the store.

“I think over the next few months, we’ll surprise you with how much we actually do have. Come on in and tell us what we’re missing. We’d be happy to consider stocking it,” Neal said. “We’re not trying to be the biggest, just the best.”
