Shur-Gro Farm Services Ltd and Munro Farm Supplies Ltd President Ron Helwer has announced the second phase of a three-stage expansion of the fertilizer storage and handling capabilities at Brandon Terminal Ltd.
Ron Helwer says the second phase will be commissioned next week.
In 2015, Brandon Terminal Ltd. completed phase one of the expansion, building a 20,000 tonne warehouse, expanding the rail siding and other improvements to the existing facility.
The second phase expansion includes another 20,000 tonne storage and handling warehouse.
This brings the total storage to 40,000 tonnes and 80,000 - 100,000 tonnes of throughput annually.
“Shur-Gro and Munro has made a $15 million investment in the Brandon Terminal Distribution facility and we are very proud to support the local economy and support the Ag Community by providing local access for their fertilizer requirements, while taking advantage of Brandon’s location as a transportation hub,” said Helwer.
Brandon Terminal has been operating as a trans load facility for a variety of commodities since 1986 serving international manufacturers and distributors, as well as distributing to retails in Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
