Scoular Acquires South Central Nebraska Grain Facility
April 2, 2012
OMAHA, NE (April 2, 2012)–The Scoular Company announced today that it has acquired a grain-handling facility in Atlanta, NE from an independent producer. Terms of the transaction were not announced.
Mark Mossman, who oversees Scoular’s Nebraska facilities, says the company plans to use the 770,000 bushel steel upright facility in Atlanta to receive local wheat, soybeans, and corn. “The Atlanta location will be operated as a satellite to our larger grain-handling operation in Holdrege. We’ve leased this facility two of the past three years, and we’re glad to have it as a permanent part of our operation. It puts us closer to some of our farmer customers, so we can be there when they need us, especially at harvest.”
Scoular plans to improve the facility by constructing a new scale and modifying the site’s traffic pattern to get trucks in and out more easily. The slated improvements are expected to be complete by mid-June, ahead of the area’s wheat harvest.
Local producers interested in bids or more information can contact Scoular’s Holdrege office at (308) 995-2155 or email local manager Andrew Haag at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition the newly acquired Atlanta facility, Scoular operates 16 other Nebraska grain-handling facilities in the following locations: Big Springs, Brandon, Elsie, Fremont, Grainton, rural Grant (2), Hershey, Holdrege, Lamar, Madrid, Paxton, Sidney, Sutherland, Venango, and Wallace. As a whole, the 120-year old, employee-owned company has more than 70 offices and facilities across North America. Nearly 700 Scoular employees tailor risk-management solutions for the company’s customers by buying, selling, storing, and transporting grain and ingredients for use in feed, food, and renewable fuel markets worldwide.
