Agtegra Cooperative has finalized the acquisition of a minority interest in EGT, LLC, which operates an export grain terminal in the Pacific Northwest that is fed by four high-capacity elevators in Montana.

“We are very excited to become a partner in EGT to provide Agtegra customers greater access to the global market,” said Jason Klootwyk, Agtegra Cooperative CEO.

“Agtegra continues to focus on growth that expands our presence along the supply chain and this acquisition provides balance in our grain portfolio as we push farther down the export value chain.”
