Clearview Co-op has announced they will expand to bring services to agricultural producers in the Southeast.

Clearview has said it plans to build a Co-op Agro Centre on road 39N, about a mile north of their existing card lock facility on Highway 12.

"As a fuel and bulk lubricant supplier, Clearview Co-op has proudly served agricultural producers for generations, and we’re excited to build on that history with our new Co-op Agro Centre," said Henry Nickel, Clearview Co-op general manager.

The site will sell seed products, crop protection products, fertilizer, grain storage equipment and agronomic services, including crop planning and scouting.

The centre will also have a fertilizer plant and seed-treating plant on site.

Nickel told The Carillon that within the federation of Co-ops, there wasn’t an agricultural service presence in the Southeast. "We were the natural fit to fill that void here."

Nickel said they’d been looking to expand, and this seemed the opportune time to provide Co-op members with additional services.

Co-op members will be able to build equity with purchases, just as they do with fuel and lubricant sales, Nickel said.

The new centre will employ between five and 10 people, the release said.

Construction is slated to begin this fall with plans to have the site open by spring of next year.
