AGP plans to expand Washington port

By | March 05, 2009
Omaha, Neb.-based Ag Processing Inc. purchased an option on 13.5 acres adjacent to its rail-to-ship bulk agricultural products transloading station in Aberdeen, Wash., for the purpose of expansion. Expansion plans, for which no time line has been set, include on-site storage silos for whole grains and additional unloading capacity to service unit trains delivering product from the Midwest. Additional development would include warehousing for distillers dried grains with solubles and corn gluten meal, among other agricultural products. AGP, which owns a 52 MMgy corn-based ethanol plant in Hastings, Neb., invested in Grays Harbor in 2004.
