Crop Production adds Rimbey outlet

The former Ross Agri plant in Rimbey is undergoing a makeover that will modernize and improve the efficiency of operations.

Nu-Vision Industries of Carseland was busy this week removing equipment from old fertilizer bins at the former Ross Agir plant at Rimbey.

RIMBEY — The former Ross Agri plant in Rimbey is undergoing a makeover that will modernize and improve the efficiency of operations.

The facilities were acquired by Crop Production Services Inc., effective Sept. 1. Crop Production Services is replacing some of the older fertilizer bins at the 4330 50th Ave. site.

“Basically, what they’re doing is putting in some new bins and a blender,” said Brian Reinhart, Crop Production Services’ area manager.

“The capacity of blending fertilizer is going to be increased,” he added, pointing out that the new blender will have a 10 tonne capacity.

Reinhart anticipates that the work will be completed by mid to late January, depending on the weather.

The Rimbey plant is Crop Production Services seventh outlet in the Central Alberta area, with others at Ponoka, Camrose, Wetaskiwin, Trochu, Castor and Czar. The company, which is a subsidiary of Agrium Inc., also operates out of Milk River, Foremost and Bow Island.

Reinhart said the Rimbey plant offers the same products as before: fertilizer, chemicals and seed. Staffing was not affected by the change in ownership.
