Faster Unloading Speeds and More Storage Planned for P&H Grain Facility in Kincardine, Ontario
April 5, 2023 | Eastern Canada
Kincardine, ON (April 5, 2023) – Major upgrades at the Parrish & Heimbecker, Limited (P&H) grain handling facility in Kincardine, ON will boost unloading speeds and expand storage capacity for farmers and customers in the region. The upgraded facility will be dedicated to serving the robust demand for high-quality wheat from P&H’s flour mills in Ontario.
“We are thrilled to be upgrading our facility with state-of-the-art equipment,” said Bruce Humphries, General Manager, P&H Kincardine. “These upgrades will not only improve the efficiency of our facility, but they will also benefit our customers by allowing them to unload their grain quickly and easily, reducing wait times and improving their overall experience.”
Planned upgrades include a new dryer and wet storage system, a kiosk for the self-weighing of trucks, a probing station, and larger receiving pits. Once completed, the new facility will offer faster unload times for producers eliminating lineups and enhancing food safety and quality control capabilities. The addition of self-loading of outbound trucks will also reduce wait times and improve overall efficiency. Construction has started and the upgrades are scheduled to be completed early 2024.
“As we move forward with these and other upgrades and additions in our Eastern region, our goal is not only to provide the best services to our customers but also to support the local community and economy,” said Darryl Markle, Director Eastern Operations. “We are excited to be investing in this region and look forward to continuing to serve it for many years to come.”
