DECATUR, ILL. — ADM Agri-Industries, a wholly owned subsidiary of Archer Daniels Midland Co., is doubling canola seed receiving capabilities and storage capacity at its processing facility in Lloydminster, Alta. As part of the expansion, the company will build five new storage bins and a second receiving system, which is expected to reduce unloading times for area farmers.
“As area farmers continue to produce higher canola yields, they expect fast, efficient and predictable receiving facilities,” said J.P. Montalvo, commercial manager at ADM Agri-Industries’ Lloydminster facility. “We are committed to area farmers, and expanding our Lloydminster receiving and storage operations will help ensure we are the destination of choice for their canola crop.”
The Lloydminster expansion project will begin this spring pending permit approvals and should be completed in the fourth quarter of this year.
