G3 Canada Ltd to expand into Alberta, continue growth in Saskatchewan

WINNIPEG, March 20, 2018 - G3 Canada Limited (G3) announced plans today to build two new facilities including its first primary elevator in Alberta, and further expand its grain origination network in Saskatchewan.

G3 intends to build a new primary elevator south of Wetaskiwin in Central Alberta. The facility will be the first G3 location in the Province of Alberta.

At the same time G3 will continue its rapid growth in Saskatchewan with the construction of a new primary elevator near Maidstone.

“We’re excited to be able to show farmers in the Wetaskiwin and Maidstone areas what G3 has to offer their business,” says G3 CEO Karl Gerrand. “Farmers near both new facilities will benefit from G3’s service model, providing fast truck turnaround and strong delivery opportunities.”

Farmers will save valuable time at these state-of-the-art facilities that will unload trucks in less than 5 minutes. The highly efficient loop track system will load trains quickly and keep the grain moving.

Both new elevators are being built with 42,000 tonnes storage capacity. The Maidstone elevator will be located on CN Rail; the Wetaskiwin site is on CP Rail. Both are well placed to supply G3 Terminal Vancouver when the next-generation grain export terminal becomes operational in 2020.

“These new facilities further advance our vision to build a world class grain handling network, and continue to grow our presence in western Canada,” says Gerrand.

Construction of the new elevators is expected to commence in April, subject to receiving regulatory approval, and both are slated for completion prior to the 2019 harvest. G3’s other primary elevators underway in Saskatchewan, near Saskatoon and Melville, are in the latter stages of construction and expected to be operational in summer 2018.
