New grain elevator in Viking, Alberta

Construction is underway for a new Parrish & Heimbecker, Limited (P&H) crop input centre and grain terminal in Viking, Ab.
Scheduled to be completed in early 2019, the new facility will include a 46,000 tonne grain storage elevator, 25,000 tonne dry bulk fertilizer shed, all attached by CN Railway with a 150-car loop track.
A chemical storage facility is also scheduled for construction at the new facility.
“The new Viking crop input centre and grain terminal puts P&H on the map to serve farmers and communities in the north/central Alberta area.
We expect to create 20 new jobs locally and expand new inputs and grain merchandising opportunities for area farmers and P&H,” says John Heimbecker, President, P&H.
“P&H broke ground for the new terminal in November 2017 and expect the economic spin-offs from the local construction crews to be significant to the Viking area over the next two years.”
The new Viking terminal will support four new north/central Alberta P&H crop input locations in Sedgewick, Wainwright, St. Paul and Marwayne.
The new crop input centre and grain terminal will also expand P&H grain marketing services to customers in all north/central Alberta locations.
Parrish & Heimbecker, Limited (P&H) is a diversified Canadian owned family company that was incorporated in 1909.
With offices from coast to coast and trade links around the globe, P&H’s grain business includes trading, handling, marine and rail freight management to both domestic and export markets.
