ST. LOUIS – Bunge North America has sold a grain elevator in Cincinnati to Vogt Warehouse, said Deb Seidel, a spokesperson for Bunge. While the grain elevator is located at 2885 Sharon Road in Cincinnati, Vogt Warehouse has a facility at 2795 Sharon Road.

“We had already determined the Cincinnati location did not fit our long-term strategy and intended to sell the facility,” Ms. Seidel said.

Bunge closed the elevator in August after an explosion, according to a Reuters news report. It was determined grain dust caused the explosion.

The elevator had capacity of 3,383,000 bus upright and 1,000,000 bus flat, according to the 2014 Grain & Milling Annual published by Sosland Publishing Co.
