Parrish & Heimbecker expanding milling, grain and crop inputs facilities in Ontario
P&H Hamilton facility to house second flour mill and expanded grain terminal
HAMILTON, Ont. (April 16, 2019) – Parrish & Heimbecker, Limited (P&H) is pleased to announce it is bringing increased capacity, capabilities and facilities to producers through expanding its Hamilton flour mill and grain terminal as well as through investing in crop input infrastructure at its Kerwood, Ont. location.
The Hamilton grain terminal expansion will continue to increase the company’s ability to connect Ontario producers with global grain marketing opportunities. Work is already underway to have the P&H Hamilton site also become the home of a second flour mill, which will make P&H the single largest user of Ontario wheat.
“Canadian producers are known for growing top quality crops and we are dedicated to not only helping them continue to maintain excellence in crop quality through our crop inputs division but also providing producers with access to worldwide markets through our grain handling, processing and marketing capabilities,” said John Heimbecker, President of Grain Division and Executive Vice President, Parrish & Heimbecker, Limited. “We are dedicated to continuing to make strategic investments to bring global opportunities to the Canadian farm gate and look forward to continuing to maintain first class partnerships with agricultural producers across Canada.”
The existing P&H Hamilton flour mill, which came online in 2017, was the first new flour mill to be built in Ontario in 75 years. This new mill significantly increased the company’s capability to receive and process locally-grown Ontario wheat. The new expansion of the Hamilton flour mill will effectively double its capacity and is scheduled to come online in 2020.
P&H also continues to strengthen its crop inputs offering through investments in infrastructure, including a new fertilizer tower in Kerwood. The new tower triples fertilizer blending capacity and allows the location to keep pace with demand for fast, efficient and precise fertilizer blending. The new fertilizer mixer is specifically designed to thoroughly and uniformly apply micronutrients, Nitrogen stabilizers and liquid additives for more consistent distribution across the acres that the product is applied.
