Viterra expands Saskatchewan elevator capacity
Viterra is expanding its grain elevator in Fairlight, Saskatchewan, Canada, to boost storage capacity and give it the ability to handle more rail cars.
The company said it will increase the size of the grain elevator so it can handle 100 rail car deliveries and store more grain for market.
Viterra did not say how much it is spending to grow the operation in the small community in the southeastern Saskatchewan farm belt.
Canadian National Railway, the company's key shipper, was involved in the expansion.
"Viterra's investment in this facility will ensure more efficient movement of grains and oilseeds for our customers," said Bob Miller, Viterra's senior vice-president of North American grain services.
The company recently struck a deal selling 12 feed mills in Canada and the USA management-led investment group.
Viterra's said its decision to sell its North American feed business was strategic and did not affect its New Zealand feed assets, and that it wants to focus on its grain handling and processing.
