Grain, feed, and food supply chain solutions provider Scoular recently purchased two locations in Florida from Columbia Grain & Ingredients to increase its ability to serve grain and livestock producers in the southeastern US. The acquired assets in Lake City and Live Oak include a feed mill, feed ingredient and grain handling facilities, and storage space.

“This transaction is critical to better serving our feed and grain customers in the region,” Eric Perry, vice president and general manager of the firm’s Feed division, said in a release. “This investment expands our network, product portfolio, and transportation presence in the region, demonstrating our commitment to providing high-quality ingredients and services to our customers. We are excited to leverage our operational expertise and experience in blending ingredients into this new and expanding business.”

The two sites provide the company with upright storage space totaling about 600,000 bu and flat storage space amounting to over 10,000 tn, which will be used to handle corn, bulk ingredients, and micro ingredients. Both facilities have railcar and truck loading and unloading capabilities.

Scoular said the deal enables it to expand micro ingredient blending services in the region. The transaction also includes Columbia’s transportation fleet and team.
