Canadian grain company G3 Canada, which operates the Trois-Rivières and Québec City terminals, has expanded its network with the acquisition of Élévateurs Beauchemin.

Located on Route 137 in Saint-Denis-sur-Richelieu in Québec, the 30,000-tonne elevator strengthened G3’s presence in the Montérégie region and offered grain drying, storage and market opportunities, the company said on 20 February.

“The Saint-Denis-sur-Richelieu grain elevator complements [G3’s] expertise … at the port terminals of Trois-Rivières and Quebec City, facilitating the global export of grain,” G3's director of operations for Eastern Québec Philippe Bélanger said.

G3 Canada is part of Canadian grain company G3, which specialises in importing and exporting grains and oilseeds such as corn, soyabeans, wheat and canola.

Headquartered in Winnipeg, Manitoba, G3’s operating companies also include G3 Terminal Vancouver, which operates a grain export terminal on Canada’s West Coast.

According to its website, G3 Canada operates a network of grain elevators in Western Canada and a network of port terminals in Eastern Canada.
