Edward E. Smith & Company was formed in 1904 by Edward E. Smith. His intent was to broker grains and feed ingredients and then deliver them by wagon and rail to the Terminal Station in Atlanta. Smith took product samples to the two flour mills and three feed mills in Atlanta and received a brokerage fee for sales to these companies. He took in a partner, Theo Martin, in the 1920's and the business became Smith & Martin for over ten years.
The partnership dissolved in the 1930's and Smith operated with the help of his two daughters into the 1940's. Following World War II Smith's son, Blanton Smith, and son in-law, James B. Crew, joined the company and eventually became partners.
George William (Bill) Smith, Jr., son-in-law of James B Crew, joined Edward E. Smith & Co., in October 1966. He became President in 1980 upon conversion from a partnership to a corporation. He now manages a separate, independent company, E. E. Smith Trading Company.
William C. (Bo) Smith, Jr., grandson of Edward E. Smith, joined the company in December 1980, and is now the owner. Recently the company moved to a new location: 3179 Maple Drive, Atlanta, GA 30305. As a family-owned and operated business, the brokerage has prospered through the years, celebrated its centennial in 2004, and continues to provide outstanding service to its customers.
