G3 Hamilton celebrates new terminal opening
G3 Canada Limited’s staff and customers, as well as other dignitaries, gathered June 21 to celebrate the grand opening of G3’s new lake terminal at the Port of Hamilton.
The terminal is the centerpiece of G3’s entrance into the southern Ontario grain handling market. Construction of the 50,000-metric-ton facility began in fall 2015 and was completed on schedule in April 2017. Consistent with G3’s other new facilities across Canada, G3 Hamilton features technology that maximizes facility load and unload speed.
“Customers of G3 Hamilton should immediately notice our commitment to efficiency and customer service. Trucks will experience faster unload times allowing them to get back on the road as quickly as possible,” said Karl Gerrand, CEO, G3 Canada Limited. “Our staff is very excited to start earning the business of Ontario farmers and to establish a strong position for G3 in the local agricultural industry and broader community.”
G3 Hamilton began accepting its first grain deliveries in March and successfully completed loading its first vessel June 2. The terminal is located at Pier 26 on Eastport Boulevard in the Port of Hamilton.
