Gavilon Grain Facility Reopens After Flooding

The Gavilon Group LLC (Gavilon) announced Feb. 4 that their facility at Phelps City, Missouri, has reopened after closing last spring due to flooding. A key partner for area farmers, the elevator buys corn and soybeans from producers and delivers them to key destination markets in the U.S. and around the world.

“This area of the country suffered a lot in 2019, including many of the producers we work with every day,” said location manager Aaron McHargue. “We are excited to start this year off with some positive momentum and hope it means that our customers, and everyone affected by last year’s floods, have a strong and successful 2020.”

Patrick Burke, Gavilon Marketing and Communications Supervisor, told the newspaper that the Phelps City facility has more than two million bushels of upright concrete storage; has a shuttle loop track on the Burlington Northern Railroad line; and serves area farmers from Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa and Kansas.
