Synagri is spending more than $5 million to build a 30,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art fertilizer plant in Chesterville along with some supporting buildings.
Construction started in late September. The project will be completed by the spring of 2015, the company said in a news release.
The new facilities will handle all products sold by Synagri. The nearby railway system will help the company to reduce its cost of product manufacturing, storage and transfer to the benefit of its clients.
The Chesterville plant will be equipped with a 100 per cent blend accuracy system, and will include a 10-railcar receiving capacity siding to partly supply the materials required to manufacture fertilizer, Synagri said in a statement.
The site will have in the future a railcar grain loading capacity, which will be able to ship grain outside the region.
