Established in 1986 by John M. “Jack” Schultz, Agracel, Inc. humbly began as a farmland investment company. When looking to name the firm, two words kept surfacing: Agriculture and Excel. Thus our name was born (Agriculture + Excel = Agracel). As the years passed Agracel’s core focus turned from farm ground to industrial development in rural America.
Though our days of farmland investments are over, we have chosen to retain the Agracel name. We believe firmly in the principals set forth by our agricultural heritage. The name Agracel ties us to the land and the good things that farmers stand for. Excellence not only in agriculture, but in everything they do.
These principals have allowed Agracel to grow by leaps and bounds over the past 30 years. Today, Team Agracel has developed over 12 million sf of industrial space in 17 states.
To be the premier provider of development services to Agurb® communities, facilitating and retaining manufacturing and hi-tech jobs, resulting in a strong portfolio of buildings, thus creating long-term value for our stakeholders.
