Grain Millers Canada Corp. (GMCC) is going to start the second phase of a project to add 80,000 metric tonnes of capacity at its mill in Yorkton.
The company is investing $100 million in the expansion project, which should be in operation by late 2018.
“We’ve operated in Saskatchewan for twenty years,” said Terry Tyson, Director of Grain Procurement for GMCC. “Yorkton is the heart of oat country and, with the skilled workforce we have here, it is a great location for us to continue growing our milling business.”
The expansion will create 25 full-time jobs, plus another 110 positions during the construction phase.
The Yorkton facility manufactures an array of conventional, organic and gluten-free oat products.
