Fertilizer provider expands terminal in St. Paul, creating more jobs

·1 min read

ADM celebrated the expansion of their fertilizer terminal and blender in St. Paul Friday, which will create an additional 10 new entry-level jobs.

Archer-Daniels-Midland Company has been operating at the St. Paul Port Authority’s Southport Terminal since 2006, at a facility leased from Alter Logistics Co. In order to keep up with demand for fertilizers from wholesale markets and farmers, the terminal needed an update, according to Scott Nagel, ADM Fertilizer president.

The expansion project at the Southport Terminal, south of Interstate 94 and U.S. 52, received $1.8 million from a Minnesota Department of Transportation port development assistance grant and just under $1 million from private sources.

ADM supplies dry and liquid fertilizer to wholesale markets, and directly to farmers. The St. Paul terminal has bulk storage capacity for a variety of macro and micronutrients that can be blended on site.

The facility is one of 29 river and interior fertilizer terminals across the U.S. and Canada operated by ADM. The company has another Minnesota location in Winona.
