General Manager Richard Reynolds said the expansion should be welcome news for local producers as it will improve capacity in the surrounding area and will provide more long-term solutions to rail access. “This expansion will allow us to remain competitive in the region and help us better meet our customers’ needs by allowing us to ship more grain,” he said.
“Improved access to rail and increased storage capabilities remains a top priority,” said Jeff Vassart, president, Cargill Limited. “We recognize the need for more storage and additional car spots for the entire value chain to maximize opportunity. By investing in our Morris location, we have an opportunity to efficiently manage how our grain will move and improve access to rail shipment.”
Farmers currently being serviced at Cargill’s Morris location will benefit by having improved opportunities to deliver grain throughout the year.
