Bin and receiving project at Royal location to increase convenience, capacity

May 27, 2014 – ROYAL, IA – A new bin and receiving project at Ag Partners’ Royal location will both add grain storage capacity and increase convenience for customers.
The bin project will add 729,000 bushels of capacity, will be able to fill at 30,000 bushels per hour and will have high aeration to protect quality of the grain. The majority of the work on the bin project will be by Ag Partners team members.
A new receiving pit north of the exiting grain facility will be large enough that trucks will not need to move while dumping grain.
The Royal location already has two pits with a capacity of 15,000 bushels per hour. The new receiving pit will be able to accommodate up to 25,000 bushels per hour. With the new receiving project, the Royal location will be able to handle 55,000 bushels per hour, enabling Ag Partners to serve customers more efficiently.
“These improvements will make our receiving capabilities much faster, and will dramatically increase our grain storage capacity,” said Tom Edwards, Location Leader in Royal. “We’re excited to provide these improvements to better serve our customers.”
The bin will be able to take grain by mid-June. The new receiving area is slated to be completed by Sept. 1.
Ag Partners provides products, services and market access in the areas of grain, agronomy, feed and petroleum. Formed in 1997, the company represents a joint venture between Alceco, an Iowa cooperative, and Cargill. The company’s locations include retail and wholesale agronomy outlets, grain facilities and feed mills throughout Iowa.
