Heritage to Build Agriculture Facility in Marysville

Heritage Cooperative has announced plans to build an agriculture campus and research farm in Marysville, Ohio, that will include a CSX unit train grain loading operation.

Scheduled for completion by September 2015, the campus will feature a 30,000-ton dry fertilizer warehouse and a 10,000-ton liquid nitrogen fertilizer storage facility.

Rail access will include a loop track facility that will be the second of its kind in Ohio. The 8,600-foot loop track will enable trains to load or unload grain while maintaining rail traffic flow on main tracks.

“The collaboration between CSX and Heritage on this facility is a perfect example of the power of partnership, working closely together through every step of development to leverage the efficiency and reliability of rail service to best meet Heritage’s needs and support growth in the community and the region,” said Tim McNulty, CSX’s assistant vice president of industrial and agricultural sales and marketing in a news release.
