Grain company investments continue

G3 Canada plans to officially open the doors to another high efficiency elevator next week.

G3’s new facility at Glenlea, Man., will host a grand opening on Oct. 5.

The facility features 34,000 tonnes of storage, cleaning facilities and a 134-car loop track.

The elevator is located about a kilometre south of Glenlea off Highway 75 and is serviced by Canadian National Railway and BNSF Railway.

Another grain company is also expanding its footprint on the Prairies.

Parrish & Heimbecker is building a new fertilizer facility at Moosomin, Sask.

According to a P & H newsletter, the company will build a new 16,000 tonne dry fertilizer shed in the first phase of construction followed by a 1,800 tonne liquid blend plant in phase two.

“It’s going to be a first-class facility, attached to rail, with very high-speed load out capabilities,” said Justin Watson, national director of crop nutrients.

P & H said the decision to build at Moosomin is in response to strong regional customer demand.

“Eastern Saskatchewan is a very strong liquid fertilizer market,” said Watson.

In the past two years, P & H has expanded its presence in the fertilizer business, adding new sheds at Hamlin, Sask., Quill Lake, Sask., Biggar, Sask., and Gladstone, Man.

The company also built a new facility at Wilson Siding near Lethbridge and is tripling its capacity at Moose Jaw.

    In other news, Richardson Pioneer has demolished two elevators in Carrot River, SK during the summer of 2016, cutting their storage capacity by 2/3rds with no plans to replace it. Farmers are being forced to haul 55 km further when the remaining facility reaches capacity, assuming they still want to sell to Richardson Pioneer.
