Federated Co-operatives Limited (FCL) invested $42.8 million in a new state-of-the-art terminal near Grassy Lake, Alberta. The terminal warehouses, blends and distributes a full suite of crop nutrition products including liquid micronutrients and nitrogen stabilisers.
The new fertilizer terminal in Grassy Lake has a storage capacity of 34,400 metric tonnes. The three Co-op Fertilizer Terminals – facilities in Hanley, Sask., and Brandon, Man., were opened in 2017 – have a combined storage capacity of 106,900 metric tonnes.
Ron Healey, FCL’s vice president of Ag and Consumer Business, said: “We made this investment understanding the important role the fertilizer terminal will play in serving local co-ops and helping them meet the needs of their members and customers.”
He added: “Having a fertilizer terminal in Alberta improves Co-op’s ability to efficiently and effectively deliver crop nutrition products to local farmers in a timely matter, which is critical during the growing season.”
