Co-Alliance Invests $15 Million in Henry County Improvements To Better Serve Farmers

Nov 04, 2022
If you've traveled St. Road 3 in Henry County, Indiana just north of New Castle you've likely seen some dirt being moved,

maybe some poles going up

or even tin being hung.

We have broken ground and made huge strides on a liquid loadout building at our Mt. Summit Ag Center. The 1.5-million-dollar investment is only phase one of the project, and will provide faster, more efficient, and environmentally friendly product distribution to farmers within a 25-mile radius of the facility. Herbicides, insecticides, and fungicides will all be housed and distributed through this facility.

That building is projected to be done and operational by early March 2023.

Phase two, which is a 13.5-million-dollar investment, includes a dry fertilizer hub and rail spur. The dry hub, which will hold 26,000 dry tons, and rail spur will be completed and operational by the end of September 2023, providing reliable product supply for other Co-Alliance retail locations in the eastern Indiana trade area. 

Co-Alliance has sixteen agronomy locations in east central Indiana that will benefit from this improved technology. In addition, these improvements will allow for employment opportunities for local residents.

Royce Cook, Mt. Summit Ag Center Manager is excited about the opportunities this investment brings local farmers. “We must be more efficient to keep pace with the farmers of this generation. This is a visible investment to show our members we’re going to be here for the next generation.” 

We invite you to stay tuned to our progress and look forward to excited updates and these projects progress for our membership.
