About Pruess Elevator

Pruess Elevator, Inc. (PEI) was formed in the early 1980’s to do nothing more than buy damaged corn and soybeans from farmers.

Harlan Pruess, founder of the company, drove by a grain bin one day and noticed an endloader loading black soybeans onto manure spreaders. The farmer was in the process of spreading them onto the ground. He talked to the farmer who owned the beans and struck a deal. The spreaders stopped and the rest is history.

Since then, PEI and parent company Lowden Salvage, Inc., have grown into a nationwide merchandiser and salvor of damaged grain. Although PEI services more and more grain elevators, export terminals, insurance companies, and barges, our goal is to still help the American farmer recoup money out of his crop should it fall victim to damage. Our services are conducted with the utmost discretion regardless of who our customer is, as it should be.

Should you or your customers have damaged grain, please feel free to give me a call and we can work through your problem grain.
