Nevada Grain is Growing
Thanks to a new 80 foot in diameter grain bin in Nevada, Ohio!
Mennel recently announced the completion of an 80 foot in diameter grain bin capable of holding about 428,000 bushels at Nevada Grain in Nevada, Ohio. With the addition of this bin, the facility nearly doubled Nevada Grain's carrying capacity.
We receive far more grain than we can hold during harvest at Nevada Grain. The bin will allow our team to stay open longer and ultimately better serve our customers.
Construction on the project began in early May and was completed just in time for this year's soybean harvest. Overall the new bin in Nevada, Ohio took eight months to complete and was a $1,850,000 investment. Jackson Industrial Construction specializing in grain bins and grain and bulk products handling systems was the bin's contractor.
