FROM OUR PRESIDENT
When my father started this business in 1969, he believed that great service was the key to success. His motto was simply “we are only as good as our last delivery”. Now; nearly 40 years later, we still believe that superior service is a difference that results in real value to our customers. Our motto has not changed, and our commitment to our customer remains the same. We will do everything we can, on every delivery, to demonstrate what Affton superior service is all about. — Christopher Wright, President
Facility. Affton offers the largest bulk transfer facility in the central Midwest region. Complete 24/7 services and a federally certified scale on site, and our paved product transfer area. Packaging is also available.
Technology. Our customized computer system was developed with you in mind, allowing for complete customization to meet special needs. We are fully EDI capable as well, for real-time information when and how you need it!
Location. Affton is located in St. Louis, MO. By being so near the very center of the country we offer not only rapid transit times for delivery, but we also offer an ideal central U.S. point for staging railcars of product set for future sales. Perhaps most importantly, our unique location provides for on-site access to every class 1 railroad.
Specialized Equipment. Our fleet of identical polished aluminum trailers has a 1636 cu. ft. capacity and was built to Affton specifications. In addition to many other enhancements, each of our trailers are equipped with Dry Cool air-to-air coolers designed to help prevent product degradation. We also offer switching flexibility by operating our own 3050TM Trackmobile.
From the moment your shipment is loaded onto the rail until it is delivered to your silo, Affton provides the very best in service and professionalism. Every part of the process is designed with your specific needs in mind. Let us show you how full-circle service can make a difference in your operation.
