    Alliance Grain Terminal, Ltd. (AGT) Announces Completion of Remodeled West Coast Terminal

    August 30th, 2018

    VANCOUVER, BC – Paterson Grain and affiliated partners, are pleased to announce the grand Re-opening of Alliance Grain Terminal Ltd. (AGT) in Vancouver, BC. AGT recently completed an extensive ship loader and dock conveyor upgrade to its existing site. Mainland site construction work began just over a year ago and was completed last month, well within time to facilitate the upcoming peak export season. The official unveiling of the updated ship terminal will be celebrated in early Fall 2018.

    Speed of loading, increased capacity, dust control and overall functionality were key priorities for the extensive remodel. The state of the art facility is now capable of loading up to 2000 metric tonnes per hour, can load during inclement weather and is able to load on two berths. The terminal also has an integrated dust suppression system, ensuring clean operations from receiving to shipping. Lastly, the terminal is fully capable of loading Panamax shipping vessels without the need to ‘spin’ the ship to complete loading. These upgrades will not only allow for improved efficiencies for both AGT and Paterson Grain’s customers, but will also assist in reducing vessel congestion in the harbor.

    Rebuild of Community Hall Now Called “Paterson Community Center”

    June 14, 2018

    BOWDEN, AB – The Bowden Community Hall has been a gathering place for the townspeople and rural residents of Bowden since it was moved piece by piece from the military base in 1948. Like many small community centers, the seven-decade old hall has since gone into disrepair and requires replacement to remain open. Paterson GlobalFoods (PGF) recognizes the important role that the hall plays in the Bowden region and is proud to support the community with a $100,000 donation.

     

         

    The new 10,750 sq. ft. facility is located on 3.2 acres of land at the north end of Bowden with a total estimated cost of $1.5 million. The modern hall, complete with a commercial kitchen, will allow for milestone events such as graduations, weddings and funerals, trade shows, farmers markets, seasonal events, and minor hockey programs.
