P&H Milling Group is expanding at its Hamilton, Ontario, CAN facility, with two new storage silos and construction of a third flour mill, scheduled to begin in March 2024.

The new storage silos are for handling essential feed ingredients such as soymeal and distillers dried grains, along with wheat to service the flour mills. This growth solidifies P&H’s standing as a leading flour production campus in Hamilton.

The existing P&H Hamilton flour mill, in operation since 2017, marked a historic moment as the first new flour mill built in Ontario in 75 years. This facility, which doubled in capacity in 2020 with a second mill and increased storage, has been pivotal in enhancing the company’s capability to receive and process wheat.

“Our ongoing commitment to the Canadian agricultural landscape is exemplified through this expansion in Hamilton," said CEO John Heimbecker. "We are not just expanding our infrastructure; we are investing in the future of Canadian agriculture and the baking industry. This strategic move reaffirms our dedication to meeting the needs of both our valued agricultural partners and our business partners.”

P&H’s expansion is aligned with its vision to contribute significantly to the food industry, supporting local farmers, and ensuring a sustainable and resilient supply chain for its customers.
