ADM-Benson Quinn will construct a shuttle loader grain elevator and 120-railcar loop track in Hebron, N.D. The elevator will have a storage capacity of more than 2.6 million bushels and will be used to load wheat, canola and other grains from local growers into 110-car grain shuttle trains. Construction is scheduled to begin by April 15, 2011, and is expected to be complete in June 2012.
Farming practices, crop rotations and seed varieties have increased crop yields in recent years, said Scott Nagel, president, ADM-Benson Quinn. ADM-Benson Quinn is expanding its grain storage and transportation capabilities to accommodate larger yields and to provide growers in the Hebron area with additional marketing opportunities for their crops. We are pleased to invest in a community that understands the value of agriculture and look forward to expanding our presence in western North Dakota.
The ADM-Benson Quinn shuttle loader elevator will be located two miles east of Hebron, just north of the intersection of County Road 139 and County Road 89.
ADM-Benson Quinn is a division of Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM). In the United States, ADM operates 191 elevators with an aggregate storage capacity of more than 420 million bushels.
