Parrish & Heimbecker (P&H) has announced an expansion of its Hamilton grain terminal and flour mill to nearly double the current capacity. The shovels are already in the ground and the Hamilton site will include a second flour mill, which will make P&H the single largest user of Ontario wheat.
“Canadian producers are known for growing top quality crops and we are dedicated to not only helping them continue to maintain excellence in crop quality through our crop inputs division but also providing producers with access to worldwide markets through our grain handling, processing and marketing capabilities,” says John Heimbecker, president of grain division and executive vice president, of P&H.
According to a news release, the new flour mill will significantly increase the company’s capability to receive and process locally-grown Ontario wheat. The current mill came online back in 2017 and the new one is expected to be active in 2020.
Along with the news about the Hamilton facility, the company also announced it will be building a new fertilizer tower at Kerwood, Ont. The addition to the existing site will triple fertilizer blending capacity and adds micronutrient, N stabilizer, and liquid additive blending capabilities.
