Gavilon Fertilizer, LLC plans to expand its fertilizer operation in Sauget, Ill. Construction of the 19,000-ton fertilizer storage building is expected to be completed in the fall of 2010. Plans also include the installation of high-speed bulk-fertilizer handling equipment and rail configuration to accommodate the loading of 110-car unit trains.
"We are pleased to be expanding and upgrading our fertilizer facility," commented Brian Harlander, president of Gavilon Fertilizer. "Upon completion, Sauget will be the first bulk-fertilizer facility in the United States capable of loading multiple products onto a single unit train, providing increased flexibility for our distribution network and supporting our ability to help customers manage inventory price risk over multiple products."
