Cargill closes Saskatchewan crop input facility

Cargill Limited announced the closure of its Langbank, Saskatchewan crop input facility, effective Feb. 15, 2012.

The company will cease production at the aging facility, which no longer serves to most effectively meet the needs of the company and its customers.

“Cargill is committed to operating safe, efficient and cost-effective networks of farm service centres across Canada,” said Sheldon Spearman, Cargill Farm Service Group Manager.

“While the Langbank facility no longer meets our current needs, we will continue to offer our valued customers the exceptional direct-to-farm service approach that they have come to expect from Cargill. Our customers will not be impacted by this change,” he said.

Cargill will continue to work with customers through its neighbouring facilities, such as Balcarres and Yorkton, Saskatchewan, and Elva and Oakner, Manitoba, as well as utilitizing alternate direct-to-farm service solutions.

In addition, Cargill will continue to serve customers through its grain marketing and farm management services.
