They were building this place all summer.
Here's the news from the Internet,
The expansion will add nearly 30,000 tons of new storage space for dry fertilizer materials at the site, including potash, selected dry phosphates and nitrogen products, pelletized lime, and others, along with high speed rail receiving and truck load-out systems. The new bulk fertilizer building will provide inland storage for dry materials for the central sands area of Wisconsin. Construction will begin this fall, with completion expected by the end of 2013.
The investment is in direct alignment with our growth strategy and will strengthen our position in the marketplace by adding dry fertilizers for a more complete product offering, said Bill Wolf, Plant Nutrient Group President. The addition of this new fertilizer storage building broadens our product supply to area customers, and fills a need for product positioning for dry bulk fertilizer products.
The website shows the company is based in Muamee, Ohio, and works with grains and ethanol. They have facilities in dozens of states. A new facility was also recently built in Arena, Wis.
Earlier in the summer, tank cars were on the tracks south of the building,
probably related to their liquid fertilizer plant just beyond.
|The rail side has some fence panels and construction stuff laying by the tracks.
