In 2014, additional warehouse space was needed to keep pace with company growth and so again more space was rented. In 2015, Northwest Builders of Rice Lake, WI was chosen to design and build the current 32,500 sq. foot expansion. Ground was broken at the end of March 2016 with a September 1st anticipated completion date.
Crystal Creek® serves the needs of farmers across the United States and Canada. Their business model is about helping family farms improve profitability and offering viable options for the next generation of farmers. At Crystal Creek®, they take an individualized approach to all of their clients and work with them to achieve a sustainable, profitable model with their farming business.
The Crystal Creek® model of doing business is reflected in the sign that hangs in their entry way that reads “We are not a team because we work together, we are a team because we respect, trust and care for each other”. This successful model builds on the importance of creating a team approach when working with their clients to meet goals and solve problems.
In addition to working with farmers doing rations and helping with animal health issues, Crystal Creek® is an industry leader in innovative positive pressure ventilation systems for livestock facilities. Dr. Ryan Leiterman, the oldest son of Jan and Dan and company co-owner, is the inventor of multiple patent pending ventilation technologies marketed under the trade names Flap Duct and Flip Duct.
Crystal Creek® is excited about the products and services that it provides to their clients. Their growth and commitment to the industry is shown in the investment they are making to their growing facilities and staff. Dan Leiterman, co-owner of the company said it best…..”My clients’ success is my success”!
