Viterra is expanding its grain origination capabilities in North Dakota.
Viterra said last week that it had bought an elevator in Grand Forks, N.D., from Gavilon Grain.
The transaction was completed May 1. The price was not disclosed.
“We’re pleased to add this facility to our asset network and to continue building our presence in the U.S.,” said Kyle Jeworski, Viterra’s president and chief executive officer for North America, in a news release.
The Grand Forks elevator has a storage capacity of 140,000 tonnes. It is served by BNSF Railway and has the ability to load up to 110 rail cars at a time.
It is also equipped with two truck receiving pits and a grain dryer.
Viterra plans to make immediate capital upgrades at the site.
Viterra also owns facilities in Ray, N.D., and Minot, N.D., and has an interest in a joint venture terminal at Northgate, N.D.
