Richardson announces new elevator in northwest Alberta

Richardson has announced plans to build a new high throughput grain elevator at Huallen, Alta, with construction to be completed by fall of 2021.

The Richardson Pioneer elevator — located 35 kilometres west of Grande Prairie — will have 45,000 metric tonnes storage capacity, with a loop track design capable of loading 150 cars.

Following completion of the elevator, a retail crop inputs facility will be added to the site and is set to be operational in late 2022. The inputs facility will host a high-speed fertilizer blender, and a 10,000-square foot AWSA certified warehouse.

Tom Hamilton, senior vice-president of agribusiness operations with Richardson Pioneer, says they look forward to building strong partnerships with producers in the area, providing grain marketing expertise, and efficient delivery options.

“The county of Grande Prairie is one of the most productive regions in Western Canada,” says Hamilton. “The addition of the crop inputs site will enable us to provide a full-service option for both grain and agronomics. This will include offering our customers leading seed, fertilizer, and crop protection technology in addition to year-round support with CropWatch agronomic services and CropMatrix digital services.”

This announcement follows closely on the heels of the recent completion of a high throughput elevator at High Level.
