Mercer Landmark :: Latty Fertilizer Plant Expansion

Mercer Landmark Inc and CHS Inc, co-owners of Latty Grain Ltd, have invested in additional dry fertilizer storage and a dry blend plant at the Latty, OH location in Paulding County. The new 150 ft diameter dome with 18 ft concrete sidewalls adds 20,000 tons of single product or 5,000 tons each of two products. It will combine two Latty plants into a single dry fertilizer location with a total dry crop nutrient capacity of 47,500 tons. The plant can receive unit trains of product and ship in truck load quantities. CHS sources crop nutrients globally for the plant while Mercer Landmark distributes them to their branch locations for use on the farm. The Latty facility allows Mercer Landmark to purchase in quantities to help control costs.

The high speed blending tower will increase efficiencies for several Mercer Landmark branch locations and have the capacity to blend 25 ton loads in six to eight minutes. It positions Mercer Landmark to better serve farmers with dry crop nutrients in northern Van Wert, Paulding, southern Defiance, and western Putnam counties by minimizing handling and transportation.

 

The expansion also enables Mercer Landmark to better provide agronomy products and services for Mercer Landmark grain customers that do business with the Antwerp, Sherwood and Grover Hill facilities. This gives the customer a better opportunity to receive patronage and stock redemption for agronomy purchases in addition to what they may already be receiving for grain, feed, and energy business. Future expansion opportunities at Latty may include seed, crop protection products, and liquid fertilizers.
