"Our return to Kindersley is a great example of Viterra's commitment to creating and maintaining an industry leading asset network that is modern and efficient," said Kyle Jeworski, Viterra's president and chief executive officer for North America. "In Saskatchewan alone, we've invested millions of dollars at several locations in recent years to support our unwavering focus on operational excellence and superior customer service."
The new facility has 28,000 tonnes of grain storage and 108-railcar loading capacity. It is the sixth elevator the company has operated in Kindersley since building its first elevator there in 1934.
"We have been fortunate to experience significant growth throughout the history of our company," said Jeworski. “Although we now have a global presence, we still recognize the importance of our Prairie roots, and the values and lessons we have learned from our farmers. As trusted advisors, we take great pride in working hard to connect them to markets in over 50 countries. We've put together a great team at Kindersley that I'm confident will continue Viterra's tradition of excellence in west central Saskatchewan."
