Thompsons Ltd. announces an agreement with IGPC Ethanol Inc. to partner for sourcing corn for 50 MMgy facility for IGPC in Aylmer, Ontario, effective Oct. 1.

“Thompsons is excited to expand our originations footprint in Ontario by partnering with IGPC. We are looking forward to revolutionizing customer service with both current customers of IGPC as well as new customers. IGPC is an important piece of Ontario’s agricultural community, and we are proud to be working with them,” said Dawn Betancourt, president of Thompsons.

IGPC Ethanol commenced operations in the fall of 2007. Since that time, it has used the services of Cargill Inc., to source local corn. “This change in no way reflects upon the performance of Cargill. They have been excellent partners. We are making the switch to Thompsons’ as we feel they will be able to support the strategic initiatives we will be undertaking in the future,” said Jim Grey, CEO of IGPC Ethanol.

Cargill will continue to serve IGPC for corn purchases and deliveries up to Sept. 30. Thompsons will begin purchasing corn today for Oct. 1 deliveries and beyond.
