CHS Closing Kalispell, MT Elevator

New facility will include 470,000-bushel storage capacity


CHS will stop operating its downtown Kalispell, MT, grain elevator by the end of the week, according to CHS Mountain West Co-op General Manager Mark Lalum.

The Daily Inter Lake reports that shuttering the elevator operations, which have been running since 1908, is a major milestone in CHS’ transition out of downtown and into the new Glacier Rail Park.

The new CHS site will include a steel grain facility with 470,000-bushel storage capacity and a 4,700-ton capacity fertilizer plant, both strategically situated with access to a 54-car rail track operated by Mission Mountain Railroad. CHS Mountain West expects to handle approximately 11,000 tons of fertilizer and move 1.7 million bushels of various grains annually through the facility, according to the company’s website.
