G3 Announces Acquisition of New Quebec Elevator

Winnipeg-based G3 Canada has announced the acquisition of a new grain elevator in southwestern Quebec. 

Already the operator of the Trois-Rivières and Québec City terminals, G3’s acquisition of Élévateurs Beauchemin in Saint-Denis-sur-Richelieu will further strengthen the company’s presence in the region and address the need for “grain drying, storage, and market opportunities,” according to a company release. 

As a rapidly growing player in Quebec, G3 specializes in importing and exporting grains such as corn, soybeans, wheat, and rye. The Trois-Rivières and Quebec City terminals are strategically positioned to serve most agricultural producers and to accommodate ships of all sizes transiting through the St. Lawrence Seaway.  

In Saint-Denis-sur-Richelieu, G3 will provide producers with direct access to the supply chain for easier and faster grain export, bypassing intermediaries. G3 offers on-site grain drying, conditioning, and storage services, with the new elevator boasting a storage capacity of 30,000 tonnes.
