Paterson to expand Killarney, Man. elevator

Paterson GlobalFoods plans to boost the handling and rail capacity of its inland terminal at Killarney, Man., by September.

The Winnipeg company’s Paterson Grain arm plans to add 18,000 tonnes of storage capacity at the inland-export terminal, about 100 km south of Brandon, and extend its rail siding to accommodate 112 rail cars.

The 100-year-old company noted in a release Friday that it has had a presence in Killarney since 1912.

Paterson in February made another move to boost its Prairie grain handling capacity by announcing plans for a 28,000-tonne capacity inland terminal at Assiniboia, Sask., south of Moose Jaw. That facility, due to start receiving grain in August, is also to be built with a 112-car spot.
