Mid-States Distributing Company, Inc., one of the nation’s largest retailers in the farm store channel, is coming to Fort Worth, relocating its corporate headquarters from Minneapolis to the Mercantile Center. The 65-year-old company purchased a two-story building, nearly doubling its previous headquarters space, and will be the only occupant with its 100+ employees. The building, formerly the location of the American Paint Horse Association (APHA), which itself is relocating to the Stock Yards, spans 40,000 square feet and is located at 2800 Meacham Boulevard. Colt Power, partner – NAI Robert Lynn Fort Worth Office Division, arranged the sale, representing both Mid-States Distributing and APHA.

This transaction marks the conclusion of APHA’s property disposition; Power also helped secure the new national headquarters relocation for APHA at the Fort Worth Stockyards Horse and Mule Barns.

“We’re thrilled to call Fort Worth our new home,” said Jeff Rash, chief operating officer of Mid-States.” “This move marks a milestone for the company. The building’s amenities, its western design and collaborative work space are attractive features and align with our brand’s identity, and we’re happy to bring more opportunities to our suppliers and members.”

The new campus offers a variety of amenities including an abundant number of parking spaces, a large loading dock for shipping and receiving, big meeting spaces, an on-site cafeteria and an outdoor courtyard. Additionally, a third wing is available for construction, which can add as much as 20,000 square feet.

“As an organization dedicated to connecting people, the Fort Worth Chamber was instrumental in bringing Mid-States to this region,” said Power. “We were excited to work with the organization to find the perfect new space for Mid-States, offering their staff a positive business climate and a great quality of life.”

Founded in 1954, Mid-States Distributing currently has 39 members, employing over 30,000 associates, with approximately 700 store locations in 33 states and five Canadian provinces with annual sales in excess of $6.5 billion, according to the company’s website.
