Grain, oilseeds, and pulse crop marketer and handler Viterra Inc. held an event Wednesday to mark the opening of its new grain terminal in Wadena, SK, the firm announced in a press release.
“We have a long and proud history in this area of the province, and we’re pleased to be renewing our commitment to our customers by revitalizing our presence through this excellent addition to our asset network,” Kyle Jeworski, Viterra president and chief executive officer for North America, said in a statement. “Projects like this one are part of our overall focus on operational excellence, and in Saskatchewan alone we’ve invested millions of dollars at several locations in recent years to support our efforts.”
The Wadena site has a storage capacity of 34,000 mt and can load more than 150 railcars on a loop track.
“This is a fast, modern and efficient facility that will enable us to provide our customers with the high level of service that they expect and deserve,” said Jeworski.
Viterra first announced plans for the grain terminal in September 2016.
