2024 Homegrown & Headquartered Family Businesses

  • Rexing Companies

E-REP’s Homegrown & Headquartered initiative is the critical intersection between local legacy family-owned businesses, regional headquartered firms, and E-REP’s business retention and expansion programming. These strategic efforts are intentionally focused on driving business growth and economic prosperity by highlighting the impact and importance of our regional homegrown & headquartered businesses and connecting them to relevant and timely resources.

Congratulations to Rexing Companies on 5 generations and more than 100 years of business. Thank you for your contribution to the Evansville Region!

Rexing Companies has been a cherished fixture in the Evansville Community for over a century, proudly rooted in family ownership and operation. From our humble beginnings in farming, we’ve branched out into various ventures throughout the years, with a strong focus on serving our community through farming, agricultural business entities, and supply chain and logistics solutions.

In 2013, we opened the doors to Evansville Cold Storage, marking a significant milestone in our journey. In 2015, Rexing Companies took another leap by launching PFL Logistics, stepping into the supply chain and logistics world. In 2017, we expanded even further by acquiring JR’s Expedited Freight, deepening our commitment to efficient supply chain and logistics services.

Our efforts haven’t gone unnoticed, with PFL Logistics earning a spot on the Inc 5000 list for four consecutive years (2020 – 2023). This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team, who continue to uphold our values while adapting to the evolving needs of our customers and community. 

Additionally, Rexing Companies can proudly say that we as a whole, play a large hand in helping one of the largest pasta sauce manufacturers in the U.S. distribute their products to consumers.

Looking ahead, we’re committed to continued growth and innovation in the Tri-State area for generations to come.
