Viterra customers, employees and local government officials gathered for the event.
"We take great care to evaluate our footprint and make the targeted investments necessary to support our industry today and well into the future," said Kyle Jeworski, Viterra's president and chief executive officer for North America. "Our new location at Grimshaw is an excellent fit for Viterra, one that will provide local customers with the high level of service and quality products they expect from us, and reinforces our commitment to driving excellence in Canada's supply chain."
The facility has 30,000 tonnes of grain storage and 104-railcar loading capacity. It is the company's second new build in the region in recent years, having opened a state-of-the-art terminal at Sexsmith in 2010.
"We recognize that our success as a company is directly attributed to our customers - those who choose to trust us, to support us, and to provide us with the quality products we need to meet our end users' expectations worldwide," said Jeworski. "It's an exciting time for agriculture, and as we continue achieving success outside our borders in global markets, we realize that it's communities like this one that allows us to do so."
