GRANT, NEBRASKA, US — The Scoular Company is expanding its loading and receiving at its North Grant facility.
Scoular is constructing a 2-million-bushel storage building at the facility, along with two 300,000-bushel grain bins and two truck dump pits. The project is expected to be complete by the start of the corn harvest.
On-site storage space will grow by 60% and total truck unloading capacity will improve to more than 70,000 bushels per hour.
“This investment will greatly improve the truck lines for producers at Scoular’s North Grant facility,” said Rick Matousek, trade unit manager of Western Nebraska for Scoular. “More storage space means fewer transfer trucks. Traffic will flow the same way, but it will flow more smoothly and wait times will improve.”
The facility also will begin to accept soybeans in addition to corn and wheat.
The North Grant facility started with one storage building in 2007, with a second built in 2012.
Founded in Nebraska, Scoular is a 127-year-old company with 102 offices and facilities worldwide and more than $4 billion in sales. The company provides global and diverse supply chain solutions for end-users and suppliers of grain, feed ingredients, and food ingredients.
According to Sosland Publishing Company’s 2020 Grain & Milling Annual, Scoular is the 11th largest company in North America in terms of grain storage capacity at 131 million tonnes.
