Weskan Grain to Acquire Stockholm Grain

(Sharon Springs, KS) — Last week, it was announced that Weskan Grain will be acquiring the assets and operations of Stockholm Grain’s locations throughout Kansas. The move by Weskan Grain will add over seven million bushels or storage capacity from Stockholm Grain to bring it’s total capacity to over 20 million bushels.

Weskan Grain, which is owned by the Soloviev Group and its Chairman Stefan Soloviev, is closely tied in with the Colorado Pacific Railroad which has been rebuilt in recent years and is also owned by Soloviev. The company says the new acquisition will add to its farmer focused mission to support farmers throughout Western Kansas and Eastern Colorado.

In a press release last week, Ab Smith, CEO of Stockholm Grain stated, “With Weskan Grain, we found a buyer who shares our core values of being customer and community focused, and being successful when the customer is successful. Gabe Cox and I are grateful to our customers, employees, and communities for their loyalty over the years.”

Stefan Soloviev, Chairman of Weskan, said in that same press release, “Creating a producer friendly, transparent grain company is the most important business goal I have in my life.  I know what it’s like to be a producer for 20 years.  I make a promise to you that if you trust me with your grain and let me fight to let both of us be treated fairly in this industry, I will not let you down.  Thats what Weskan is about…. that’s all it is.  It is an honor to be chosen by Ab Smith to continue his legacy and the local legacy he created.  Ab and I have gotten to know each other the last month and we share the same vision.  I am honored that Ab will help guide me going forward.  This acquisition and merger gets me one step closer to my overall goal.”

More details on the acquisition are forthcoming at a later date. You can learn more about Weskan Grain online at Learn more about the Colorado Pacific Railroad online at And learn more about Stockholm Grain online by visiting
