GLADSTONE, N.D. — Southwest Grain is beginning construction on a $3.9 million expansion of the fertilizer plant at its terminal in Gladstone.

General Manager Delane Thom tells The Dickinson Press that the plant's storage capacity will go from 10,000 tons to 25,000 tons.

The project also includes a new conveyer that will dramatically cut down on the time it takes to unload a train. Agronomy Manager John LeMieux (luh-MYOO’) says that will make the plant more efficient and increase safety for employees who no longer will have to work in the dark.

The upgrades should be done by the end of the year.
