ADM Agri-Industries, a subsidiary of Archer Daniels Midland, is doubling canola seed receiving and storage capacity at its processing plant in Lloydminster, Alberta, Canada. The company will build five new storage bins and an additional receiving system. It is expected to reduce unloading times for farmers that supply the plant.
"As area farmers continue to produce higher canola yields, they expect fast, efficient, and predictable receiving facilities," said J.P. Montalvo, commercial manager at ADM Agri-Industries' Lloydminster facility. "We are committed to area farmers, and expanding our Lloydminster receiving and storage operations will help ensure we are the destination of choice for their canola crop."
The company expects to begin the project in the spring and complete work by the end of the year.
