SCOULAR EXPANDING ITS SOUTHWESTERN NEBRASKA FACILITY FOR WHEAT, CORN AND SOYBEAN PRODUCERS
Source: Scoular news release

Grant, NE - Producers will have additional space for storing corn and wheat and a new facility for storing soybeans thanks to an expansion at The Scoular Company's North Grant loading and receiving facility.

Scoular is constructing a 2 million-bushel storage building at the facility, along with two 300,000-bushel grain bins and two truck dump pits. The project is expected to be complete by the start of the corn harvest. On-site storage space will grow by 60 percent and total truck unloading capacity will improve to more than 70,000 bushels per hour.

"This investment will greatly improve the truck lines for producers at Scoular's North Grant facility," said Rick Matousek, Scoular's Trade Unit Manager for Western Nebraska. "More storage space means fewer transfer trucks. Traffic will flow the same way, but it will flow more smoothly and wait times will improve."
The facility, located about 9 miles north of Grant in southwestern Nebraska, also will begin to accept soybeans in addition to corn and wheat.

The expansion illustrates Scoular's ongoing commitment to farmers in southwestern Nebraska. The North Grant facility started with one storage building in 2007, with a second built in 2012. The bushels of corn received at the facility have nearly quadrupled over the past 13 years.

"Scoular has made significant improvements to its North Grant facility over time to better serve producers," Matousek said.

Founded in the heartland of the United States, the 127-year-old Scoular has 102 offices and facilities worldwide and more than $4 billion in sales. The company provides global and diverse supply chain solutions for end-users and suppliers of grain, feed ingredients, and food ingredients. For more information, visit scoular.com.
