Bartlett Grain Plans New Facility in Barton County, KS
Date Posted: July 2, 2014
Bartlett Grain is pleased to announce its construction of a new grain facility in Barton County, Kansas, just east of Great Bend on the Kansas and Oklahoma Railroad.
We look forward to bringing our focus on customer service and access to strong destination markets to the area’s producers and the region’s existing grain elevators.
The new elevator is designed for efficient and high-speed handling of inbound trucks.
Road access will be off of US Highway 56.
The facility will have nearly 3 million bushels of storage and is designed to load out 110 car shuttle trains.
We expect to employ 10+ people year-round.
Construction will begin this month, and we anticipate being open for business by the 2015 wheat harvest.
Bartlett’s originators will increase our presence in the area in the next few months.
The Barton County elevator will join 9 other Bartlett grain facilities in Kansas.
Bartlett is a family owned and managed company which has been operating grain elevators in Kansas since 1907.
We are thankful to Barton County for their welcome and strong support.
