P&H Milling Group, Canada’s largest milling company, is building a $45 million flour mill in Hamilton, USA.
P&H Milling Group which has been into milling since 1964 is starting to build a new flour mill in Hamilton, Ontario State. According to the news of The Western Producer, it will be the first entirely new mill in Ontario in 75 years, although P&H Milling’s Dover Flour added a new milling unit at its Acton, Ont., mill doubling capacity in 2009.
The mill will be built adjacent to the terminal elevator that its parent company Parrish & Heimbecker Ltd. opened in 2011 at the Port of Hamilton. P&H Milling will spend $40 million on the project and the government of Ontario is kicking in $5 million. The new bulk mill will house efficient state-of-the-art equipment including additional grain and flour storage. The expansion will enable the company to process 25 percent more grain, and help increase the company’s intake of Ontario wheat by more than 10 percent annually.
