BrettYoung approves the largest single investment in company history. The investment plan will significantly expand seed storage, cleaning, blending and bagging capacity at its Winnipeg facility and improve blending and bagging throughput at the companyâ€™s Calmar, Alberta location.
â€śTo best serve the growing and evolving needs of our customers we need to ensure we are resourced to do so,â€ť says Cory Baseraba, chief operating officer at BrettYoung.
â€śThese investments coupled with the recent opening of our state-of-the-art seed coating and treating facility will position us to deliver the seed products and services our customers are requesting. Importantly, the expansion also enhances our ability to serve our seed grower partners by allowing us to more efficiently receive the high-quality seed they produce. The expansion demonstrates our continued commitment to our long standing seed grower partnerships.â€ť
Design work, construction planning and permitting are underway and the new capacity is anticipated to come online in several phases over the next 12 months.
