CGI has hired Tyler Kieffer as location manager, overseeing operations at the Arvilla and Larimore locations, as well as, the newly-acquired Minto, ND plant. Kieffer joins CGI with over five years’ experience in the grain business, and resides on his own hobby farm with his wife in Hillsboro, ND.

Additionally, Nathan Sillers joins CGI as operations manager for these locations, having worked with Gavilon in the past.

“CGI acquired the Minto location because it complements our existing locations at Arvilla and Crystal, ND,” says CGI’s Senior VP of the Grain Division Kurt Haarmann.

“It is located 32 miles from Arvilla, and 33 miles from Crystal. This acquisition will help us to better serve growers in Minto, and the surrounding areas, by providing another harvest location for wheat, soybeans, corn, dry edible beans, and specialty crops.”
