Cargill expanding rail service at Kindersley
Dec 21, 2012, Winnipeg, MB – Cargill is expanding its rail car handling capacity in Kindersley to better service Western Canada.
The Kindersley expansion project began in December 2012 and should be completed in the spring of 2013. The rail loop will have a 100 rail car capacity once it is complete. Since acquiring the facility from Viterra in 2007, Cargill has doubled the volume of grain handled at the Kindersley facility.
Cargill anticipates there should be minimal disruption to services and that the facility will continue to operate in a safe and efficient manner throughout the construction period.
Cargill has been making a number of investments in Canadian agriculture the last several years, including a significant expansion to its canola crush plant in Clavet, Saskatchewan and a new farm service centre in McLennan, Alberta.
