From Agri-Way Partners Regarding Yarmouth Grain Bin Collapse

Agri-Way Partners regrets to announce that one of our team members was fatally injured in an accident at our Yarmouth facility on June 21st 2022. All of us are deeply saddened by the loss of our friend and co-worker. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends during this most difficult time. The safety and well-being of our employees is our number one priority at Agri-Way Partners. We’re providing law enforcement with information and are fully cooperating in their investigation. Additionally, we’re conducting our own internal investigation as to how this incident happened. We will share more information when appropriate.

I would like to thank our current and past employees who worked through the night to assist in the rescue efforts.

I would also like to thank all of the Fire, Rescue and Law Enforcement agencies from S.E. Iowa who assisted in this rescue efforts. They are too numerous to attempt to recognize in this statement. They all worked through the night in efforts to rescue our team member.

I would also like to thank all the area business and contractors who called and came to help support the efforts in any way they could. The support was overwhelming.

I would especially like to thank the Yarmouth community of Farmers, Families and Business who supported the efforts.  They provided food drinks and support to the rescue efforts like I have never seen before in my life.
