Hamilton grain terminal gets major upgrade
One of Canada’s largest grain handling firms is expanding its Hamilton operation. Richardson International announced Wednesday it will spend $5.5 million to expand its port terminal facility here to increase handling and shipping capacity. “We have been using the port of Hamilton a lot and demand is rising steadily,” said company spokesperson Tracey Thompson. “Hamilton is emerging as an important port for us.” The Hamilton project includes the addition of a third receiving pit and elevation leg with two new truck beam scales. This will increase truck receiving and handling capacity by one-third to meet the demand for grain deliveries. Richardson will also be adding a second vessel-shipping tower to increase shipping capacity.Upload News
