Wilken Grain has become the largest private storage facility in Australia and has the ability to house over 100, 000 tonnes of Barley, Wheat, Canola and a vareity of pulses. Wilken Bulk Haulage transports a majority of grain from the site to many parts of Victoria, with some being transported to South Australia and southern New South Wales. Wilken Bulk Haulage has a growing fleet, currently consisting of SuperLiners and Trident Mack Trucks.
Also primary producers, the Wilken Family have the advantage of a growers perspective, giving local farmers the confidence to gain valuable advice regarding appropriate market assessments and decisions.
In 2002, the Wilken Family bought the local hardware store and have been providing the surrounding community and district with a wide range of stock. Warrack Home Timber and Hardware are proud of the extensive array of stock available, along with quality support and product knowledge that are provided. Continuing in the Retail sector, Werrigar Roadhouse was purchased in 2006 and has rapidly expanded to now distribute Bulk Fuel to local farms and businesses in the Wimmera & Mallee regions. In 2009, the Werrigar has put plans into action due to supply and demand, to enlarge the premises for easier accessibility for local and visiting trucks and roadhouse customers.
