PRATT, Kansas (Jan. 30, 2024) – Scoular has acquired three grain handling facilities in central Kansas, enabling the company to more than double its storage capacity in the region and expand market opportunities for area farmers.
The three facilities, purchased from Skyland Grain and located in Trousdale, Cullison and Greensburg, significantly expand the company’s footprint in central Kansas, where it has operated a shuttle-loading facility in nearby Pratt for over a decade. Scoular is also excited to welcome additional members to its facility team in the region.
The newly acquired facilities complement the company’s Pratt shuttle-loader. Scoular invested in major upgrades at Pratt, including boosting unloading speeds and storage, that were completed in 2022.
Scoular will handle corn, wheat, soybeans, milo and canola at the newly acquired facilities. The grain will be transported through Pratt, located on the Union Pacific mainline, providing more producers access to markets through Scoular’s extensive supply chain network.
The facility acquisitions also enhance Scoular’s ability to continue providing 100 percent of the feedstock needed by partner Pratt Energy for ethanol production.
“Expanding our footprint in central Kansas enables us to better serve local producers, customers, and our partners,” said Scoular Regional Manager TJ Mandl. “We remain committed to building lasting relationships with a continued focus on responsible growth opportunities.”
Scoular, headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska, operates a Midwestern grain handling network that includes more than 50 facilities in Missouri, Iowa, Kansas, Colorado and Nebraska.
