The Alexander grain elevator is currently owned by G3 Canada Limited. This elevator was a Manitoba Pool elevator, likely built in the early 1980s. It has a capacity of 5,800 tonnes in the central elevator, annex and attached bins.
This elevator was operated by Mission Terminal Inc., which became owned by the Canadian Wheat Board (CWB) prior to its acquisition/renaming to G3.
The Canadian Wheat Board began construction of a new grain elevator near St. Adophe, Manitoba in 2015. Pouring of the concrete began on May 4 and by July 2015 the build was well under way. It is scheduled to begin receiving grain in March 2016.
The St. Adolphe grain elevator will have a capacity of 34,000 tonnes and will feature a 134-car loop track connected to the CN Letellier subdivision. The elevator will be able to load over 1,600 tonnes/hour into the rail cars.
Since the elevator began construction, the Canadian Wheat Board was purchased and renamed G3.
