Bartlett, a Savage Company, has completed a major expansion of its grain milling facility in Wilson’s Mills, North Carolina.

The expansion was made possible through the collective efforts of team members, customers, project contractors and community leaders, said the company.

Said to be the largest flour miller in North Carolina, Bartlett invested $28 million on facility upgrades that included adding a third milling unit and significantly increasing storage capacity for wheat, flour and millfeed.

Construction work on the project began in July 2021 and was completed in April 2023.

“We’re excited to celebrate the completion of this multi-year project to expand our Wilson’s Mills facility to better serve our customers and partners,” said Bob Knief, president of Bartlett. “We continue to invest in growing and improving our network of grain and milling assets across North America, including this facility expansion in North Carolina.”

The Wilson’s Mills grain mill was built in 2000 and acquired by Bartlett in 2007. In 2012, the facility was expanded to add a larger 5,000-cwt milling unit. As part of the 2021-2023 expansion, another 5,000-cwt milling unit was added and storage capacity was increased by about 80% for wheat, 50% for flour and 50% for millfeed.

“Our Wilson’s Mills facility now has three milling units with a combined daily capacity of 20,000 cwts and storage capacity for 1.1million bushels of wheat," said Trey Sebus, vice president for milling. "We’ve also added eight family-wage jobs as a result of this expansion."
