Fertilizer distribution terminal expanding

LORDSTOWN — The Andersons Inc., a Maumee-based provider of plant nutrients, is expanding its Lordstown wholesale fertilizer distribution terminal, the company announced.

The project will include a 10,000-ton storage building, increasing dry bulk storage by nearly 65 percent. The project also features enhancements to the receiving system and loadout automation process.

The facility on Muth Road opened in 1998.

According to the company, dry bulk storage capacity will increase from 15,500 to 25,500 tons. The new receiving system will improve unloading capacity from 300 to 500 tons per hour, allowing the company to resupply the warehouse much quicker during periods of high demand.

The project is expected to be completed by fall of this year.
