Respect ∙ Relationships ∙ Results
President Mike Kopfmann created the three R’s: Respect, Relationships, Results. These principles represent Stan’s culture and how as a team we can use these three R’s to build a stronger team. The three R’s represent the three legs of a stool that support the Stan’s reputation and is a foundation for growth both personally and company-wide.
Respect. You give it, you get it. Respect is earned by being trustful, truthful, and responsible.
Relationships. Building relationships takes time and we build them with trust, honesty, and integrity. By doing what we say we are going to do, we can build strong relationships.
Results. We like to measure results by sales, productions, and profitability. Results are what our customers expect and what we expect, through hard work and dedication.
The formula is easy…Respect multiplies into Relationships which equals Results. Anytime we encounter a challenge or an opportunity we think of the three-R’s – We Respect one another, continue building Relationships at home and at work, which creates Results that support our customers, vendors, Stan’s, and most importantly our families.
Stan’s was established in 1964 by Stan Kopfmann who started the business by going farm to farm with a tractor and grinder to service his customer’s feed needs. Today, Stan’s continues that same customer service by getting the customer what they want, when they want it. Our team consists of dedicated employees that have a wealth of knowledge in the feed and trucking industry.
Transportation. Stan’s is a leader in the feed and trucking industries and continues to grow. Growing to a line of 60 trucks and 150 employees, our trucking services include hauling refrigerated goods, dry goods, grains, and feed ingredients. We are continually updating our trucking fleet with more fuel efficient and aerodynamic trucks and trailers. Learn more »
