FAIRMONT — The most efficient grain processing equipment available, including three gleaming grain legs with the capacity to simultaneously ship and receive 120,000 bushels per hour, greeted visitors to an open house near here Tuesday.
The $22 million, 2.1 million-bushel CPI-Lansing LLC west of Fairmont is a loop track grain facility that will be used to load shuttle trains on the BNSF Railway.
Construction on the project began in January 2012. More than 20 contracting companies, most of which are from the Midwest, worked on the project.
The limited-liability company is a partnership of Hastings-based Cooperative Producers Inc. and Lansing Trade Group LLC of Overland Park, Kan.
