Making an inroad into the grain handling business, Mission Terminal Inc. opened its first primary elevator on the prairies today at Alexander, Manitoba, on a CP Rail line just west of Brandon.

With a capacity of nearly 6,000 tonnes, the elevator will help the company grow its grain handling business with its ability to handle wheat, barley, canola, flax, peas, oats and rye for area farmers.

Adrian Measner, president and CEO of Mission Terminal Inc. and MTI’s parent company Upper Lakes Grain Group, says MTI has built its business by offering farmers a competitive alternative for grain handling and elevation through its support and promotion of producer cars.

“This acquisition builds on our extensive producer car network, demonstrating our commitment to becoming a valuable service partner for prairie grain farmers,” Measner said.

Grain stored at the elevator will be shipped primarily to Thunder Bay and Trois-Rivières, where the company operates terminal elevators, or to the United States. Farmers have been invited to attend the elevator’s open house this afternoon.
