Stanfill Enterprises was established in 1961 in an agriculture community by Max Stanfill. Max was the first individual to bring new technology to the state of Tennessee. Solutions Magazine, the journal of The National Fertilizer Solutions Associations, noted in their January 1982 addition that Max Stanfill's theory on seeding through suspensions was a "significant breakthrough in the industry".
On August 2015, Trish hired Brent Mayfield to come on board as the Logistics Manager and to help coordinate the efforts to take Stanfill Enterprises to the next level in the transportation industry. In 2017 Brent was promoted to VP of Operations. After learning the company's dedicated history to providing top notch service and innovated solutions to help further the industry as well as the community, Brent purchased the operations in July 2018. Brent will continue to hold to the mission established in 1961 to make Stanfill Enterprises Co., Inc. a successful business not losing focus on family values and to be instrumental in the growth in the community
