The company unveiled a new grain facility, including an elevator and loading/unloading assets, in Huntley, MT this month.

Agricultural supply chain firm Gavilon Grain LLC recently held an event to mark the grand opening of a new grain facility in Huntley, MT, an October 14 company release announced. The site includes a slip form concrete elevator with a 750,000 bu storage capacity and external storage totaling 1,500,000 bu.

“Moving our operations out of Billings and into Huntley will improve our efficiencies and handling capabilities, while allowing us to better serve the area,” Terry Bartelt, location manager for the Huntley location, said in a statement. “We have been welcomed by the Huntley community and we are excited to be open and serving the area producers.”

Gavilon also built two trick receiving pits that can each unload 38,000 bu/hr. The site can also load a 120-car shuttle in six hours.
