UGG Invests $2.7 Million To Upgrade Beausejour Elevator
BEAUSEJOUR, MANITOBA—UGG today announced a $2.7 million expansion
of its grain handling facility in Beausejour, about 80 kilometres
east of Winnipeg, Manitoba.
UGG Beausejour effectively operates at full capacity, handling
over 50,000 tonnes of grain in each of the past three years. This
investment will double plant capacity by adding four aerated steel
bins to bring total grain storage to over 9,000 tonne. The
elevator distribution system and weighing system will be improved
to allow loading of 30 rail cars in under ten hours. The project
will also include grain drying equipment and a new office.
