The acquisition is spread across British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba and includes the following locations:

P&H says this continues its investment in growing a more competitive grain supply chain in Canada by expanding grain terminals, flour milling facilities, feed mills and elevators.
“Acquiring geographically strategic assets from a global leader like LDC makes us better and stronger by an order of magnitude,” CEO John Heimbecker said in a release.
P&H adds the move will help them give producers better access to more competitive offerings in grain trading, handling and merchandising.
