Gavilon has officially opened its new grain facility in Huntley, Montana. Launched with a grand opening and producer appreciation celebration, the facility is completely open and ready to serve area producers. The facility boasts a state-of-the-art slip form concrete elevator with 750,000 bushel (bu.) storage capacity and more than 1.5 million bu. external storage. The facility also was built with several efficiencies, including the ability to unload trucks at two receiving pits, each with 38,000 bu./hour capacities, as well as a 120-car shuttle loading capacity in six hours.
“Moving our operations out of Billings and into Huntley will improve our efficiencies and handling capabilities while allowing us to better serve the area,” stated Terry Bartelt, location manager for the new facility. “We have been welcomed by the Huntley community and we are excited to be open and serving the area producers.”
